Tumor Cell Mediated Degradation In Vitro of Antitumor Antibodies
An in vivo interaction between tumor cells and humoral immune components was strongly supported by the findings that malignant tumor cells of human and animal origin are coated in vivo with Ig molecules. In some tumor host systems it was possible to show that at least some of the tumor bound Ig molecules expressed antibody activity against the tumor cells .
