By P. K. Ray

The quick and non-stop upsurge of fascinating info within the topic of tumor immunology necessitates the book of an annual sequence to provide the up-to-date fabrics to the scholars, researchers, and clinicians during this swiftly advancing box. techniques and methodologies are ever altering. additionally, present learn in tumor immunology delivers to provide breakthroughs sooner or later. very important is the necessity to converse to the fitting humans the precise position of immunodiagnostic tools and immunolog­ ical intervention in melanoma prevention and therapy. The function of immuno­ treatment together with traditional modalities of therapy wishes in its right point of view. Oncogene, interferon, lympho­ to be understood kines, monoclonal antibodies, ordinary killer cells, platelet-mediated cyto­ toxicity of antibody-coated goal cells, suppressor cells, platelet-derived elements, plasma-blocking elements, regulate of suppressor mobilephone functionality, ab­ rogation of plasma-blocking elements, and so on. , are a few of the components which are constantly advancing. development in those parts could have implication in melanoma remedy. additional, it's already understood that if immunocompe­ tence of the host could be maintained at a pretty reliable point, there exists the capability to extend the healing indexes of traditional modalities of therapy.

In patients with lung cancer, in vivo response to antigens and also lymphocyte transformations in vitro were impaired; this is in contrast to responses in age- and sex-matched controls. Further impairment of cellular immunity was seen after x-ray therapy (133). Peripheral blood analysis of cancer patients given regional irradiation showed long-term aberration of T and B lymphocytes. Even after 3 years of therapy, many patients had decreased lymphocyte counts. Phytohemagglutinin (PHA) response was also altered for a considerable length of time.

Blomgren H. et al: Chemotherapia 1:402, 1982. K. RAY, M. B. PODUVAL Drugs can only repress symptoms. They cannot erradicate the disease. The true remedy for all diseases is nature's remedy . . Nature has provided, in the white corpuscles as you call them-in the phagocytes as we call them-a natural means of devouring and destroying all disease germs. There is at bottom only one genuinely scientific treatment for all diseases, and that is to stimulate the phagocytes. Stimulate the phagocytes . .
