Utilization of tumour-sensitized ('educated') and radiolabelled lymphocytes for tumour localization.

Upon coculture of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) in the presence of irradiated autologous tumour cells, the PBL can be sensitized to the tumour (or perhaps more correctly resensitized), as shown by in vitro cytotoxic properties. The cells can be proliferated in the presence of interleukin-2, radiolabelled with 111In and injected back into the cell donor… (More)
