Low natural killer cell activity in patients with malignant lymphoma

Cancer
T TurszJ L Amiel

Abstract

Natural killer (NK) cell activity was found decreased (mean value: 27.5%) in peripheral blood lymphocytes from 59 untreated patients with malignant lymphoma, when compared to 112 healthy subjects (46.3%) and to 75 cancer patients with nonlymphoid tumors (43.7%) (P less than 0.001). NK cell values were similar in patients with Hodgkin's disease (25.5%) and with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (28.2%). Decreased NK cell activity was not correlated with age, lymphoma extension or leukocyte counts. A physiological role for NK cells in the immune surveillance against lymphoid neoplasias is discussed.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

B-cell lymphomas include lymphomas that affect B cells. This subtype of cancer accounts for over 80% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the US. Here is the latest research.
