Representative cytotoxicity experiments against the OMMT-ARK-2 cell line. Cytotoxicity in the presence of human plasma diluted 1:2 (with or without heat-inactivation) with effector cells and either hRS7 or rituximab control antibody in 5 h 51Cr-release assays. Addition of untreated plasma (diluted 1:2) to PBL in the presence of hRS7 significantly increased the ADCC achieved in the presence of hRS7 and PBL against OMMT-ARK-2 (P = 0.002). Addition of physiological concentrations of IgG (i.e. heat-inactivated plasma diluted 1:2) to PBL in the presence of hRS7 did not significantly alter the degree of ADCC achieved against OMMT-ARK-2 in the presence of hRS7 and PBL (P = 0.95).
