100 cases of carcinoma of the urinary bladder, managed over the last 4 years, were subjected to immune evaluation by the DNCB skin test. Their immune responses were correlated against the grade, stage, survival and prognosis respectively. The results showed that a) a larger percentage of bladder tumor patients showed a poor response when compared to the general population b) cases which showed a poor response were of a more advanced stage and grade c) the disease was rapidly progressive and fatal in patients who showed no response (anergy) d) cases which showed a good response had low stage, low-grade tumors e) the degree of reactivity had a significant correlation with grade, stage, prognosis and survival.
