Resumen : Natural killer (NK) cytotoxic activity was simultaneously investigated in bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMC) and peripheral blood Iymphocytes (PBL) from nine Hodgkin's disease (HD) and 15 non -Hodgkin Iymphoma (NHL) untreated patients. Twenty-five PBL samples and seven bone marrow specimens from healthy individuals were also included as control group (C). NK cell activity was evaluated in basal condition and post-stimulation with human recombinant IL-2 (rIL-2). Data were expressed in K values (number of BMMC or PBL needed to Iyse 50% ofthe target cells). In basal condition, both HD and NHL patients showed a NK cell activity comparable to the C group, both in BMMC (HD, K=2•48±1.3; NHL, K=3.8±2.0; C, K=3•2±0•7) and PBL (HD, K= 2•0±1.0; NHL, K=2•3±1.0; C, K=2•2±0•2). Stimulation with rIL-2 induced a significant and comparable enhancement of the NK activity in PBL from HD, NHL and C while the response to rIL-2 of the BMMC in most of the HD and NHL patients was significantly greater than the C group. Responder cells were characterized by negative selection with specific MoAb plus complement as a CD3-, CDI6+, CD56+ cytotoxic cell and further confirmed by flow cytometry. We postulate that IL-2 activation of bone marrow NK cell precursors, in addition to enhancing the activity of circulating NK, may be of value for the therapeutic rationale of IL-2 in patients with Iymphoma.
