Abstract

Clinical observations of the remission of metastatic lesions in six patients following cryothermic treatment of their primary prostatic tumor suggest that factors other than freezing may be involved in both primary and secondary cellular destruction. The precise mechanism(s) operative in the cases presented is not yet definitive; however; priliminary data are suggestive of immunologic factors. The nature of the possible immunologic process underlying these remissions is discussed.
