Abstract

It is becoming increasingly clear that chemical, physical, and biologic carcinogens are immunosuppressive. Most of the available information on the immunosuppressive activity of oncogenic agents concerns adaptive immunity [17]. Recent studies have indicated that exposure of laboratory animals to various carcinogenic insults affected also certain expressions of innate, natural immunity such as natural killer (NK) activity (for review see [2]).
