Both general morphology and cell interactions were investigated in adherent cell populations of peritoneal exudates incubated with YC8 cells. The capacity of stimulated macrophages to participate in the destruction of tumor cells was demonstrated by cytotoxic tests using 51Cr (Fray et al., this volume, p. 181). In this study, possible associations between macrophages and tumor cells were observed with the scanning electron microscopy.
