Abstract

Fourteen patients with various stages of retinoblastoma, five normal volunteers, one patient with breast carcinoma, and five patients with other ocular diseases affecting the retina were tested for cell-mediated immunity by the 125I-iododeoxyuridine cytotoxicity assay against a long-term tissue culture line derived from retinoblastoma and against a control tissue culture line derived from breast carcinoma. Eleven of the 14 patients with retinoblastoma had significantly increased lymphocytoxicity against the retinoblastoma cell line. This cell-mediated immunity may have been directed against retinoblastoma tumor antigens; however, other possibilities included common tissue antigens, virus-coded antigens, and fetal antigens.
