The histology of immunologically mediated tumor regression was studied in the syngenic strain 2 guinea pig/line 10 hepatocellular carcinoma tumor system. Tumor regression was induced non-specifically by the intralesional injection of living Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) in 7-day-old established tumors (diameter 8-10 mm). In untreated line 10 tumors at day 7 a mild to moderate inflammatory reaction was present, which consisted mainly of small mononuclear cells; in addition large mononuclear cells and basophils were present. Intratumoral BCG-treatment induced a prominent increase in the inflammatory reaction due to an influx of small and large mononuclear cells and neutrophils. Small mononuclear cells were identified mainly as lymphocytes whereas large mononuclear cells belonged mainly to the macrophage line. Intratumoral administration of BCG resulted in a granulomatous reaction. A time-related decrease in the number of tumor cells and an increase in inflammation, associated with purulent lysis of the granulomatous tissue, was observed. Specific immune-mediated tumor rejection occurred in animals both after active immunization and after adoptive transfer of immune spleen cells. In actively immunized animals the tumor cells were...Continue Reading
