T-cell clones that exhibited both lytic and proliferative activity for the syngeneic FBL-3 lymphoma were isolated from in vitro sensitization cultures. These clones were Lyt-2+ and proliferated specifically to the FBL-3 lymphoma but not to other tumors of C57BL/6 origin, allogeneic tumor, or C57BL/6 normal lymphocytes. Adoptive transfer of clones exhibiting both proliferative and cytotoxic activity prolonged survival and occasionally cured the animals of disseminated FBL-3 lymphomas, while T-cell clones exhibiting lytic but no proliferative activity.
