Abstract

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the immunological effects of pre-operative embolization and nephrectomy, in patients with renal neoplasms. The count of T and B lymphocytes by the method of lymphocytic corpuscles supplied these results: medial percentages of B lymphocytes do not differentiate from the ones of normal patients, and were not modified by therapeutic proceedings; basal medial percentages of T lymphocytes of patients with renal cancer decreased compared with normal patients; they were not modified by embolization; nephrectomy, on the contrary, induced a prompt and remarkable increase. Hypotheses on the origin and meaning of such results are suggested and discussed.
