The number of whole T-subpopulation cells and TM-helper and TG-suppressor cells are evaluated before major surgery and throughout the postoperative course by morphological and histochemical methods. All cells belonging to the T-subpopulation are reduced in number in the first and in the second postoperative day, returning to nearly pre-surgical levels by the third postoperative day. Unchanged TM/TG ratio after operation suggests unaffected immunoregulation.
