Abstract

The parameters of humoral and cell-mediated immunity were studied in cancer patients treated with fetal preparations. The study revealed a tendency towards an increase in serum interferon and activity of tumor necrosis factor-α (in the patients with pronounced response to therapy), increased count of CD8+-lymphocytes (in the patients not responding to embryonal proteins) and a tendency towards a decrease in the counts of lymphocytes with signs of apoptosis in the patients in whom the treatment was ineffective.
