The presence of a growing tumor can lead to a significant curtailment of a graft-versus-host reaction as measured by the ability of allogeneic spleen cells to induce a host vascular response. This interference with the normal pattern of immunological reactions may be a reason for the survival of tumors in an immunologically alien environment.
