Trial Information

Lymphokine Activated Killer (LAK) Cell Activity Against Cell Lines In-vitro of LAK Generated in Vivo by Pulse Interleukin-2 Therapy


Blood samples will be taken from patients undergoing outpatient Interleukin-2 therapy to
measure the LAK cytotoxicity at baseline, after 1 cycle of therapy and 2 months later. The
LAK cytotoxicity assay will be a standard colorimetric assay that measures lactic
dehydrogenase release from lysed cells.


Inclusion Criteria:



- Patients must be undergoing Interleukin-2 therapy under the care of physicians at
Loma Linda University Cancer Center

and federal guidelines

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients not undergoing Interleukin-2 therapy under the care of physicians at Loma
Linda University Cancer Center
