The research thus far on the relation of the immune system to gliomas has shown that a glioma associated antigen does exist. Small quantities of glioma associated antibodies probably circulate within the patient's serum but there is definite evidence of depression of the cell-mediated vanguard of the immune response. This depression is caused by a blocking factor that may be present as an antigen, antibody, or antigen-antibody complex. Both active and passive immunotherapeutic techniques have… CONTINUE READING
