Antitumour efficacy of lymphokine-activated killer cells loaded with ricin against experimentally induced lung metastases.
Adoptive transfer of tumour-specific T lymphocytes loaded with ricin into tumour-bearing mice exerts a transient therapeutic effect against locally induced tumours [Cerundolo et al. (1987) Br J Cancer 55: 413]. As transferred cells preferentially locate in the lung, we studied the therapeutic effect of ricin-loaded, lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells on lung metastases induced by M4 or B16-F1 (F1) tumour cell injection. In vitro studies demonstrated that ricin-treated LAK cells were abou...Expand abstract
