Glioblastoma cells constitutively produce various amounts of PGE2 (prostaglandin E2) in vitro. The amounts of PGE2 found in the conditioned medium of the glioblastoma cultures (less than 5 ng/ml) were not enough to inhibit the IL-2 (interleukin-2) activation of peripheral blood lymphocytes. However the amount of PGE2 produced by approximately 1 x 10(7) of the glioblastoma cells can be assumed to suppress the generation of IL-2-induced killing activity against glioblastoma cells.
