We have studied AHH induction in pulmonary alveolar macrophages, lymphocytes and lung tissue from 7 non-cancer and 7 lung cancer patients. For individual non-cancer patients, an excellent correlation was noted for AHH in all 3 tissues. For individual lung cancer patients, AHH values of the same three exhibited poor correlation. In studies with lung cancer patients, use of any single cell type (e.g. lymphocytes) may not accurately assess the capacity of the individual for AHH induction.
