Paclitaxel causes mouse splenic lymphocytes to a state hyporesponsive to lipopolysaccharide stimulation.


Multiple immune system actions have been ascribed to paclitaxel (taxol), a novel anticancer drug, including the capacity to induce macrophage antitumor cytotoxic molecule production. In the present studies, we demonstrated that paclitaxel produced a selective inhibition of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced B cell proliferation. Similarly, in vitro polyclonal… (More)
