Abstract

Immunotherapy is a new method of killing malignant cells in the treatment of cancer. It is well known, from the rejection of incompatible grafts, that membrane antigens can excite an immune reaction capable of killing cells carrying these antigens. It is also known that these immune reactions can sometimes fail to kill the cells that have raised the reaction and, indeed, work quite to the contrary by protecting the cells: this is the enhancement phenomenon (1).
