Abstract

In the present work the authors have employed their personal modification of the technic of interferon reaction of lymphocytes, which consists in using the lymphocytes isolated from regional lymph nodes but not from the peripheral blood as described in the literature. The titres of interferon produced in vitro by the lymphocytes of lymph nodes, removed during the operation in cervical cancer patients, were shown to correlate well with the clinico-morphological changes, indicating the rate of the regional lymphoid tissue response. The mentioned correlation speaks in favour of the prognostic value of the interferon reaction of regional lymph nodes lymphocytes in cervical cancer.
