The authors examined the cellular and humoral immune reactivity in patients with carcinomas of the prostate gland and determined several glycoproteins. The blastic transformation of lymphocytes was found significantly decreased. However, the concentrations of the immune globulins were not changed. Significant changes were seen in the glycoproteins belonging to the group of 'acute phase reactant proteins' and the complement titre in the serum. On account of the decreased immune reactivity the authors propose an immune therapy in carcinoma of the prostate gland.
