Different behavior of thymus in hosts bearing skin homo grafts or ehrlich ascites carcinoma

Archiv fuer Geschwulstforschung 46(3): 183-186

Different behavior of thymus in hosts bearing skin homo grafts or ehrlich ascites carcinoma

Thymus behavior in A2G male mice transplanted with skin homografts or Ehrlich ascites carcinoma was followed for a period of 28 days. In comparison with control mice of the same strain in which only a slow physiological involution of the thymus was observed, a marked, irreversible involution was seen in the tumor-bearing mice in contrast with the transient, completely recovered involution in animals transplanted with skin homografts. Thymus behavior appears as the major structural difference between a host developing a strongly efficient or an inefficient immune response.
