  • The effect of sera from 107 patients with gastrointestinal cancer on macrophage chemotaxis was studied using a modified Boyden chamber technique. A macrophage chemotactic inhibitory factor (CIF) was found in sera of advanced cancer patients. The CIF activity was significantly stage-related, and increased especially in patients with negative cutaneous responsiveness in purified protein derivative, dinitrochlorobenzene and keyhole limpet hemocyanin skin tests, and with low circulating T… CONTINUE READING
