Abstract

Histologic changes observed in association with gastric, mammary, and bronchial carcinomas may be considered features of colorectal carcinomas also. We interpret our results as evidence of a local host reaction to the tumor, probably antigenic. We conclude that adjuvant immunotherapy after radical surgical treatment will probably increase the chance for survival.
