The levels of serum immunglobulins were measured in 30 subjects diagnosed bronchial carcinoma at AtatÃ¼rk Universty chest disease's department in order to determine humoral and cellular immunity. TÃ¼berkÃ¼lin skin tests were made. As a result, regardless of the stage and type, the levels of serum immunglobulins were high. Especially negative results of tuberculin skin tests were significantly high in extensive stage carcinomas. This result indicated that there was a correlation between the stage and sellular immunity.
