It was also found that their activity is characteristically boosted by interferons (IFN) and IL2. However, multiple treatments with agents able to enhance NK cytotoxicity eventually result in reduced or undetectable augmentation of NK activity. A major challenge still remains to determine how to obtain prolonged augmentation of NK activity and whether this will result in a more effective control of tumour growth [19]. While these difficulties made clinical exploitation of cellular reactivity against cancer remote, the discovery by E.

Over a period of observation of up to 24 hours, there was no indication that these cells retained in the microvasculature emigrated into the tumour tissues. Despite this apparent failure of the transferred cells to directly interact with tumour cells, focal necrosis of tumours has been observed to occur in this model system. Histologic sections of treated tumours at about one week after inoculation showed not only evidence of necrosis, but also substantial accumulation of a variety of inflammatory cells, including macrophages and eosinophils in addition to lymphocytes.

Herberman, manuscript in preparation). One major unanswered question, which is quite relevant to the above considerations, is whether the adoptively transferred cells are able to emigrate out of the microvasculature into tumour tissues and then directly interact with tumour cells. To examine this issue, we have recently utilised a novel animal model that permits visualisation of the microvasculature of normal and tumour-bearing tissues [49]. These studies have involved vital video microscopy of the microvasculature of chambers in the ears of rabbits, containing granulation tissue or the VX2 carcinoma, a transplantable rabbit tumour that induces extensive neovascularisation.
