Several studies have shown that sera from patients with Hodgkin's disease contain factors capable of inhibiting polymorphonuclear functions, among them chemotaxis. In the present study, we investigated whether these sera, which were able to inhibit PMN chemotaxis in the agarose rest, were also able to affect the H-3-NECA binding to PMN membrane obtained from healthy donors. Control experiments were carried out using PMN incubated with a pool of sera from healthy volunteers. No significant difference was found in the maximum number of binding sites; on the contrary, the equilibrium dissociation constant was significantly increased in the membrane preparation of PMN incubated with pathological serum.
