The authors have studied the influence of primary, methylcholanthrene-induced tumor on T and B lymphocytes of spleen, thymus, draining lymph nodes and peripheral blood of rats. Differences in weight of tumors were found to correlate with changes in proportionality of T and B lymphocytes of followed organs. Small tumors induced but insignificant changes.(More)
The immunorestorative effect of levamisole was observed in Lewis rats inoculated with a syngeneic B-77 virus induced tumor and immunized with sheep erythrocytes. In tumor-bearing rats the cell-mediated cytotoxicity, the delayed footpad reaction and the antibody production were suppressed. While the cytotoxicity suppressed in tumor-bearing rats was not(More)
Cytolytic activity of mineral oil elicited rat peritoneal macrophages activated by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and/or rIFN-gamma, rIL-2, Zymosan and PMA (4-beta-phorbol-12-beta-myristate 13-alpha-acetate) was detected in the presence of various concentrations of L-arginine. This paralleled the NO2- production in the presence, but not in the absence, of(More)
The indirect tube LAI (leukocyte adherence inhibition) test has revealed that peripheral blood lymphocytes of rats of the inbred Lewis strain immunized with liver B77 tumor cells incubated in the presence of a specific tumor extract, release a factor into the culture medium that inhibits adherence of normal syngeneic peritoneal cells. Supernatants in which(More)
The peritoneal macrophages from normal Lewis rats were characterized by their capacity to phagocytose, by the presence of nonspecific esterase and Fc receptors. In vitro, these macrophages were maintained in culture 7 and/or 21 days, respectively, and for the last 24 h (activation period) were cultured with 0.1-4.0 micrograms/ml of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)(More)
