Abstract

Neoplastic tissues are often infiltrated by normal leukocytes. Morphological, histochemical and monoclonal antibody-defined markers are now available by which these cells can be separated in vitro or identified in situ. The analysis of the origin, regulation and function of cells of the lymphoreticular infiltrate of tumors reveals that they can be ambivalent in the regulation of neoplastic growth.
