Abstract

We describe a 56-year-old woman with Stewart-Treves syndrome who had severe dyspnea from a pleural effusion caused by metastatic angiosarcoma in the right lung. Tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in the pleural effusion were cultured and expanded in vitro in the continuous presence of recombinant interleukin 2 with periodic stimulation by CD3 antibody. The expanded TIL were administered intrapleurally seven times at I- to 4-week intervals in combination with intravenous infusion of recombinant interleukin 2. A panel of T-cell clones was also obtained from TIL. Immunotherapy dramatically improved the patient's dyspnea and pleural effusion. A CD4+ T-cell clone and a CD8+ T-cell clone established from TIL had specific cytotoxicity to the tumor cells.
