Abstract

Methionine enkephalin was found to increase significantly the active T-cell rosettes from lymphoma patients. In sharp contrast, the leucine enkephalin was observed to increase active rosettes only at a single low concentration. Neither enkephalin significantly altered the total T-cell rosettes. It is suggested that methionine enkephalin could have a significant influence in enhancing cell-mediated immunity and T-cell function, particularly in lymphoma patients
