[The motility of IL-2 activated lymphocytes into malignant glioma].

Abstract

The effects of glioma culture supernatant (GCS) and interleukin-2(IL-2) on the motility of autologous stimulated lymphocytes (ASL) were studied by using collagen gel system, chemotaxic chamber system and flow cytometric analysis. GCS inhibited the migration of ASL into collagen gel. It enhanced the ASL motility and the expression of CD 26 antigen on the cell surface. IL-2 inhibited the migration of ASL into collagen gel and had no influence on the motility of ASL, but enhanced the expression of CD 26 antigen. On the other hand, a clinical glioma specimen showed limited depth of ASL migration when injected into the tumor cavity in addition to the formation of fibrin like membrane on its surface and a layer of degenerated ASL under it. To make ASL therapy more effective to malignant glioma, the following measures should be recommended; 1) inject adequate volume of IL-2 into tumor cavity, 2) reduce the frequency of ASL administration, 3) wash out of glioma secreting factors, degenerated ASL and glioma cells in addition to reduce the volume of tumor tissue.
