We have examined the production of interferon (IFN) gamma by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) in 22 patients with Hodgkin's disease (HD) in active phase of the disease, 12 patients in clinical remission and 16 healthy subjects. The level of IFN gamma in supernatants of PBMC stimulated for 72 h with anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody (mAb), measured by sandwich enzyme immunoassay (ELISA) was 50.4 +/- 2.3 U/ml in active phase; 137.0 +/- 7.4 U/ml in clinical remission patients; and 520.0 +/- 10.0 U/ml in the controls; the difference between the groups was statistically significant. Co-stimulation with interleukin-2 (rIL-2) markedly amplified production of IFN gamma. The mean levels were 220.8 +/- 7.0 U/ml, 590.7 +/- 3.6 U/ml and 2111.1 +/- 17.3 U/ml in active phase HD, clinical remission and controls, respectively, the difference between groups was statistically significant. The patients showed the same kinetic pattern as healthy individuals. Our results indicate that patients with HD have severely impaired TCR/CD3 activation pathway resulting in significantly depressed IFN gamma response to anti-CD3 mAb and anti-CD3 + rIL-2 in vitro stimulation and provide support for the possible clinical use of IFN gamma as an immunopotentiating agent in patients with HD.
