The foreign Society of Chemotherapy meets each years to study growth in chemotherapy of infections and of malignant disorder. every one assembly will get better to surround the extension of chemotherapy into new components. In a few situations, exp~sion has been quick, for instance in cephalosporins, pen icillins and mix chemotherapy of melanoma - in others gradual, as within the box of parasitology. New difficulties of resistance and untoward results come up; relief of host toxicity with out lack of antitumour job by way of new elements occupies broad awareness. the enhanced effects with melanoma chemotherapy, es pecially in leukaemias, are resulting in a better occurrence of serious an infection in sufferers so handled, pharmacokinetics of substances in common and diseased topics is rece1v1ng expanding awareness in addition to comparable difficulties of bioavailability and interactions among medicinal drugs. in the meantime the assault on a number of the significant bacterial infections, comparable to gonorrhoea and tubercu losis, that have been one of the first infections to consider the influence of chemotherapy, nonetheless remain significant international difficulties and at the moment are below assault with new brokers and new equipment. From this huge box and the 1,000 papers learn on the Congress we've got produced complaints which replicate the diversity and power of study during this vital box of medication. It used to be impossible to incorporate all the papers provided on the Congress yet now we have tried to incorporate so much facets of cur hire development in chemotherapy.

The direct hemolytic plaque assay was performed following Jerne et al. (1963) with the modification introduced by Bullock and Moller (1972). RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: The molecular structures and activities of the anti-inflammatory molecules are shown in Table I and in Fig. 1 a primary immune response curve to SRBC is depicted. The hemolytic plaque assay, which detects IgM forming cells (Jerne et al. 1974), showed a single peak with a maximum around the 4th day after immunization. This maximum was also detected in serum antibody tests.
Calculation of the mitotic indices of the L 1210 cells from a theoretical model Having failed experimentally to find any evidence of synchronisation we decided to calculate theoretically whether any synchronisation could be expected. Figure 2 explains the method of these calculations which is based on the changes in the frequency distribution of cells throughout the cycle. To make the model easier to understand, we made idealised assumptions. We assumed that the cycle time remains constant even L 1210 ASCITES TUMOUR CELLS AND CRYPT EPITHELIA 10 20 33 30 hours Fig.
Based on this hypothesis, previous work on animal tumours has shown the cytostatic effect of DNA isolated from the same tumours and chemically modified. It has been postulated that the modified DNA acted as a vaccine in active immunotherapy of the host from which tumour DNA was extracted. With passive immunotherapy, a new approach has also been obtained by getting DNA antiserum from rabbits with the DNA isolated from tumours as antigens and chemically combined with rabbit gammaglobulins; the DNA being considered as a hapten.
