Abstract

Fourty-five patients with head and neck cancer and 30 healthy subjects were evaluated by a modified humoral leukocyte adherence inhibition assay using basic encephalitogenic protein as antigen. Ninety-three percent of cancer patients gave a positive reaction, whereas every control person remained negative. The results suggest that humoral leukocyte adherence inhibition assay performed with basic encephalitogenic protein may be useful as an early diagnostic tool in head and neck cancer.
