The authors examined a course of immunoglobulin values (IgA, IgG, IgM) in 40 patients with the Hodgkin's disease and repeatedly in 11 healthy persons. In the patients they followed the levels of the immunoglobulins during the disease, up to 5 years. In untreated patients there were statistically significant increased IgA levels and insignificant increase of(More)
In 56 patients with Hodgkin's disease different clinical and histological stages the activity of polyphenoloxidase was repeatedly examined in the course of the disease as an indicator of serum ceruloplasmin concentration. In untreated patients the ceruloplasmin concentration was on average twice as high as in healthy controls. Repeated examinations made in(More)
The efficacy of two treatment modalities of Hodgkin's disease stages I-IV (1) local irradiation of COPP chemotherapy with protracted low-dosage cyclophosphamide administration, or (2) all-round irradiation of lymphatic vessels or the same COPP treatment combined with shock doses of cyclophosphamide is evaluated. Duration of the first remission and survival(More)
