The specific cell-mediated immunity of the lymphocytes of eight patients with choriodal malignant melanoma (MM) to four extracts of choroidal MM-associated antigens was tested with the aid of the MIF technique. Seven of the patients with choroidal MM responded to at least one of the four extracts used, whereas patients with choroidal nevus or carcinoma as well as healthy controls did not respond to any of the MM choroidal extracts. There was no response to iris extracts obtained from the enucleated eyes with MM in any of the subjects tested.
