Based upon studies demonstrating that 'Immunoregulatory Alpha Globulin' (IRA) can effectively suppress antigen induced proliferation of previously sensitized lymphocytes and suppress both the primary and secondary immunologic response, it is hypothesized that IRA may suppress, to varying degree, the host's mechanism(s) of immunologic surveillance. Data obtained from the study of the alterations of serum proteins in patients with carcinoma of the prostate is presented as evidence in support of this hypothesis.
