The formation of immune antibodies in rabbits during the growth of a brown-pearce tumor

  • G. P. Airapet'yan


Experiments were conducted on healthy rabbits and on those suffering from cancer. The author undertook a comparative study of the antibody production resulting from administration of heterologous antigen (water-salt extract of the ascitic cells of the Ehrlich adenocarcinoma), and of homologous antigen (water-salt extract of the Brown-Pearce tumor). In immunization with a heterologous tumor antigen immunogenesis was depressed in the affected animals in comparison with the control ones. As to immunization with a homologous tumor antigen, it caused no antibody formation either in the experimental or in the control group of animals.
