Abstract

Immunological disturbances with impairment of immune function and a higher incidence of lymphoproliferative disorders and other malignancies have been described in liver cirrhosis patients. To investigate the pathogenetic mechanism(s) involved in such associated we looked for a possible imbalance in peripheral blood T-lymphocyte subpopulations in patients with liver cirrhosis of differing severity. Immunophenotyping and counts of peripheral blood T-lymphocyte subpopulations were carried out using monoclonal antibodies conjugated with different fluorochromes in 31 consecutive cirrhotic patients and 23 matched healthy volunteers. Univariate and multivariate analyses of lymphocyte phenotype counts were performed and odds ratios were computed. Statistically significant associations, according to both univariate and multivariate analyses, were found between case/control status and mean CD3 and CD4 T-lymphocyte counts (P
