Using tumor red blood cell garlands as an observing index, this paper reports the emitted qi' s effect on the immune sticking function of mice's red blood cells to tumor cells. We have found that, firstly, mice's red blood cells and moxa ascites cancer cells can form tumor red blood cell garlands; secondly, the average rate of tumor red blood cell garlands of the mice influenced by the emitted qi was 31. 68±6.l9, while that of the control mice was 26.44±1.43. The difference was 19.82%. After we handled the research result with the statistic method, we got P<O.01, which proved that the emitted qi helped to promote and increase the immune sticking function of mice red blood cells to tumor cells. This might imply the emitted qi can help red blood cell membrane complement and receptor form garlands after its reaction with tumor cells. This is a new field of tumor immunology which indicates a new direction to the treatment of tumor. The examination of red blood cell immune activity index has great referential value to the observation of patients' immune state, judgment of qigong treatment effects, and indication of disease prognosis.
