The percentage of total T-lymphocytes was measured in 38 patients with histologically diagnosed squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. This measure of cellular immunity, which appears to be important in tumor-cell destruction, is demonstrably lowered in advanced stages of this disease. With the use of this test, the effect of a combined chemoimmunotherapeutic regimen consisting of methotrexate sodium, isoniazid, and BCG vaccine was sutdied.
