These are a quite unique set of properties which set N-CMC as a distinct category of effector system, different from the rules and properties that govern the more conventional cytotoxic effector mechanisms; although it may well be that the final event of actual target lysis may be similar for most effector cell types [36].

Three of the lesions, of the 35, could not be categorized as benign or malignant [153], a problem that we stressed some time ago [21, 25, 29] concerning the accuracy of the registries oflymphomas in immunodepressed patients. Furthermore, while the predominant type of disorder in the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome was the B-immunoblastic sarcoma, in the ataxia-telangiectasia group there was a predominance of either Hodgkin's (of the lymphocytic depletion type) or NHL of the type usually associated with the 14q translocation [153].

Once it has developed during early ontogeny, the N-CMC system can act directly without the need of time-consuming priming (as is the case for T cells) or of time-consuming production of macrophage-activating factors. In the past, one of our arguments against conventional immune responses mediating IS addressed this time-consuming initial step required for recognition and clonal expansion (or functional activation, in the case of macrophages) of the effector population capable of dealing with the in situ tumor [25, 29, 49, 57].
