Individual and combined tumoricidal effects of dexamethasone and interferons on human leukocyte cell lines.


We investigated the influence of glucocorticoids on two effects of interferons (IFNs) which are thought to relate to their antitumor actions: cytotoxic activity and induction of HLA antigen expression. We treated human myeloid cell lines (U-937, HL-60, THP-1, K-562, and KG-1a), and T-(MOLT-4) and B- (Daudi) lymphoblastic cell lines with concentrations of… (More)
