Abstract

The aim of the study was to determine cytotoxic activity and interferon- producing ability of the lymphocytes of local and system immunity, to reveal correlation between these two parameters 20 patients with ulcer and gastric cancer were studied. The production of interferon by the lymphocytes in the regional lymphnodes and its cytotoxic activity were depressed considerably as compared to lymphocytes of another location. With tumor progression pronounced depression of local immunity occurred. System immunity changed to a lesser degree but in the same direction.
