The immunomodulating effect of some new amino- and imino-acridine derivatives, were investigated on antibody dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) and induced-blast transformation of lymphocytes. In different concentrations (2.0 x 10(-6) M, 4.0 x 10(-8) M and 2.0 x 10(-5) M) the drugs produced a suppression of PHA and ConA induced cell proliferative response except in the case of 2b, 2d and 2g amino-acridines. The suppressive effects were dose dependent and exhibited a higher inhibitory level in the case of imino-acridines. Some drugs at low concentration exerted a little enhancing effect on ADCC reaction.
