Bone marrow was incubated over a short period in vitro in the presence of WBI and normal serum. The number of cells capable of forming colonies in soft agar was maintained over a 48-hr period in the presence of WBI but not normal serum. Furthermore the decline in transplantable CFU was slower in the presence of WBI serum. Possible mechanisms for these results are discussed although firm conclusions cannot be drawn.
