32 patients with different tumours were irradiated by 60Co gamma-rays. During therapy lasting for several weeks, changes in the content of immunoglobulin and of some other serum proteins, circulating immune complexes and plasma free-hemoglobulin were determined. Immunosuppression according to immunoglobulin content in serum was not produced by this type of radiation. Decrease in immune-complex levels was a good prognostic sign. Low values of plasma-hemoglobulin content during treatment indicated that no erythrocyte membrane damage had been effected.
