  • SYNERGISTIC ANTITUMOR EFFECT OF INTERFERON AND ANTIIDIOTYPE MONOCLONAL-ANTIBODY IN MURINE LYMPHOMA JOURNAL OF IMMUNOLOGY BASHAM, T. Y., Kaminski, M. S., Kitamura, K., Levy, R., Merigan, T. C. 1986; 137 (9): 3019-3024

    Abstract:

    Both IFN-alpha and anti-idiotype monoclonal antibody therapy have significant antitumor activity in vivo in a murine B cell lymphoma model. Combination therapy with syngeneic anti-idiotype antibody of the IgG2a or IgG2b isotype (a single i.p. injection of 100 micrograms) and recombinant human hybrid interferon-alpha A/D (10(4) to 10(6) U three times weekly for 3 wk) synergistically increased median survival time in mice challenged with a lethal dose of tumor cells compared with the sum of the median survival times of the two individual treatments. IFN-alpha has direct antiproliferative activity against 38C13 in vitro and enhances in vitro macrophage anti-idiotype antibody-specific cytolysis for IgG2a, IgG2b, and IgG1 isotypes.
