Evaluation of the immunohistological state of lymph nodes regional with respect to tumors

  • A. A. Serov
Microbiology and Immunology


The immunoreactivity of lymph nodes regional with respect to the tumor was studied in 22 patients with melanoma. Blast-transformation, rosette-formation, and immunofluorescence tests were used to detect T- and B-lymphocytes. Lymphocytes were isolated from one half of the lymph node, the other half was used for histology. The results showed that function of the regional lymph nodes correlates well with morphology.
