In the present study, we have characterized the effectors, precursors, and regulatory ancillary cells involved in the in vitro generation of lymphokine-induced cytotoxicity. It was first shown that at least two lymphokines are needed for the generation of lymphokine-induced cytotoxicity. They are interleukin 2 and a novel lymphokine, the cytotoxic cell differentiation factor (CCDF). CCDF was produced primarily by the macrophages. The effectors of the lymphokine-induced cytotoxic cells thus… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Augmentation of the generation of lymphokine-activated killer cells after a single dose of mitomycin C in cancer patients
TLDR
The decrease in the proportion of suppressor-inducer subsets of PBM might be at least partially, responsible for the augmented generation of LAK cells after mitomycin C administration.
Effectivein vivo induction of lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells by pretreatment with a streptococcal preparation, OK-432
TLDR
It was demonstrated that asGM1+ LAK precursor cells induced by OK-432 were effectively differentiated into LAK cells by rIL-2, which abolished completely such augmentation of LAK activity inOK-432 treated mice.
Monocyte-dependent, serum-borne suppressor of induction of lymphokine-activated killer cells in lymphocytes from melanoma patients
TLDR
The results suggest that HS-Pt(m) inhibits the early stage of LAK cell differentiation, rather than the binding of rIL-2 to PBMC or a later stage in the differentiation.
Enhancement by Monocytes of Perform Production and Its Gene Expression by Human CD8+ T Cells Stimulated with Interleukin‐2
TLDR
It is suggested that monocytes are important in in situ regulation of the CD8 + T cell‐mediated cytotoxic response through production of PFP through stimulation with inter‐leukin‐2‐stimulated T lymphocytes.
Lysis of human alveolar macrophages by lymphokine-activated killer cells.
TLDR
These studies indicate that IL-2 can generate LAK cells against autologous AM phi, and this cytolytic activity must be taken into account when IL-1 or LAK Cells are used for immunomodulation in patients with cancer.
Augmentation by transferrin of IL‐2‐inducible killer activity and perform production of human CD8+ T cells
TLDR
Results indicate that Tf is important in generation of IL‐2‐inducible killer properties and PFP activity of human CD8+ T cells.
A functional and phenotypic comparison of murine natural killer (NK) cells and lymphokine‐activated killer (LAK) cells
TLDR
It is concluded that LAK cells share several features in common with cells of the NK lineage and may therefore represent NK cells in a unique state of activation.

Lymphokine-induced cytotoxicity: requirement of two lymphokines for the induction of optimal cytotoxic response.
TLDR
It is established that lymphokine-induced cytotoxicity can be separated into two phases, and the sequential presence of these lymphokines at an appropriate time during the activation and differentiation phases is critical for the generation of LICC response.
Activation of natural killer-derived cytotoxic T lymphocytes. I. Regulation by macrophage and prostaglandins.
TLDR
Results clearly show that through regulation by macrophages and PG, NK-derived precursors differentiated into mature CTL, and indicates that other lymphokines might also be produced and that they are essential for CTL activation.
In vitro and In vivo antitumor activity of lymphokine‐induced cytotoxic cells
TLDR
The ability to generate LICC was preserved in the tumorbearing hosts until the terminal stage of tumor growth, when the generation of suppressor T‐cells interfered with LICC induction.
Lymphokine-activated killer cell phenomenon. II. Precursor phenotype is serologically distinct from peripheral T lymphocytes, memory cytotoxic thymus-derived lymphocytes, and natural killer cells
TLDR
While the cell(s) responsible for activation and expression of LAK activity have some common features with the classic T cell-mediated CTL and NK cell systems, the LAK precursor cells are clearly distinct as determined by phenotype analysis using monoclonal antibodies and complement, and at present must be classified as a “null” cell.
On the heterogeneity of murine natural killer cells
TLDR
The view that natural cytotoxicity in vitro can be mediated by several distinct cell populations under different genetic and regulatory control is strengthened and the importance of defining and delineating the cell lineages of each and the role of the independent subsets in resistance to virus infections and tumors in vivo is indicated.
Studies on cytotoxicity generated in human mixed lymphocyte cultures. I. Time course and target spectrum of several distinct concomitant cytotoxic activities.
TLDR
The types of target cells susceptible to the MLC-activated effectors are investigated and the time course of the generation of these activities is analyzed to find common antigenic determinants between the sensitizing cells and targets susceptible to anomalous cytotoxicity.
Natural cell-mediated immunity.
Induction of Natural Killer Cell Activity and Allocytotoxicity in Human Peripheral Blood Lymphocytes after Mixed Lymphocyte Culture
TLDR
It was demonstrated that fresh NK cells lose their NK lytic activity when cultured alone and there is no antigenic relationship between the recognition sites for the alloreactive T lymphocytes and MLC‐generated NK cells expressed on the lymphoid target cells and the tumour target cells, respectively.
Cytotoxic reactivity of human lymphocytes cultured in vitro.
TLDR
The presence of CCC with features of natural killer and killer cell activities and its regeneration in culture indicate that it must be distinguished from specific tumor reactivity or alloreactivity in mixed lymphocytes and mixed lymphocyte-tumor reactions, particularly when tumor cell lines are used as targets.
