|Abstract:||The purpose of this investigation was to verify the non-specific cellular immune responses after the cryoresection of the prostate. 1) Peripheral lymphocyte counts, 2) toxoplasma test, 3) Mantoux test and 4) PHA-induced blastoid transformation of peripheral lymphocyte at pre- and post-operation were examined in 70 patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia and 34 patients with prostatic carcinoma. Peripheral lymphocyte counts of the patients with prostatic carcinoma was less than that of the patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia, especially at the second week after the cyroresection of the prostate, significantlly (p<0.05). In other tests, there was no significant difference between benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostatic carcinoma, as well as between pre- and post-operation.|
