AbstractWe have analysed the influence of human malignant, inflammatory and infectious disease on the capacity of peripheral lymphocytes to mediate antibody-dependent haemolysis. The application of an enzyme-like kinetic model for measurement of maximal cytotoxic function has permitted reproducible and sensitive determinations of the K-cell function. The results show that malignant disease is associated with enhancement of ADCC capacity.
