Method Abstract: "The dilution in the circulating blood of lymphocytes lablled in vitro with 3H-cytidine was examined after autotransfusion in 9 patients with Hodgkin's disease (HD) stage II A-IV B, 5 of whom were untreated in 2 untreated patients with carcinoma, and in 1 treated patient with scleroderma."
Comments P.213 bottom paragraph: "On the basis of data from 3H-thymidine labelling in vivo it was deduced that the proportion of short-lived small blood lymphocytes was about 10% in haematologically normal tumor patients [unpublished data] and 13.5-55% in patients with active Hodgkin’s disease [primary source]."
