B-lymphocytes and T-lymphocytes were determined before and after therapy in 12 patients with chronic lymphatic leukemia (CLL) treated with extracorporal blood radiation (ECIB). There was a significant decrease of B-lymphocytes (p less than 0.001) from 85.3 +/- 6.55% to 71.55 +/- 10.60% by ECIB, whereas no significant changes could be found in T-lymphocytes. 12 untreated CLL patients, whose B-lymphocytes amounted 83.25 +/- 6.79% with 7.5 +/- 3.42% of T-lymphocytes, were examined as group of comparison. From these findings ECIB is concluded to cause a decrease of accumulated B-cells.
