The increase in number of Ehrlich ascites tumor (EAT) cells was diminished significantly when the cell culture was treated with 1,000 IU/ml of recombinant mouse alpha or beta interferon (IFN). Microscopical observation revealed that almost all the cells showed bi- or multinuclear morphology 3 to 5 days after IFN treatment. Furthermore, a videorecording showed that each multinuclear cell arose by fusion after mitotic division of one parental cell.
