To investigate the immunomodulatory effect of different types of postoperative blood transfusion by studying the frequency of natural killer cell precursors (NKp)
NKp frequency decreased in all groups except the autologus filtered blood group, where the frequency increased with the blood tranfusion
Immunosuppression is reversed by transfusion of autologous salvaged blood, suggesting that the blood contains immunostimulants.
