From: Crosstalk between tumor cells and lymphocytes modulates heparanase expression

  T-lymphocytes (%) B-lymphocytes (%) NK cells (%)
Median Range Median Range Median Range
Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) 71.2 6.2 7.2 2.4 8.3 1.7
PBMC + MCF-7 culture medium 68.4 12.7 5.5 2.2 5.3 0.9
PBMC + co-culture medium 71.6 8.1 8.1 1.5 5.3 3.6
  1. Co-culture = lymphocytes from a healthy woman in the presence of MCF-7 cells for 18 h
  2. PBMC was incubated with culture medium of MCF-7 cells and co-culture for 4 h at 37 °C and 5% CO2
