Clinical significance of immunopathological findings in patients with post-pericardiotomy syndrome. II. The significance of serum inhibition and rosette inhibitory factors


, : Clinical significance of immunopathological findings in patients with post-pericardiotomy syndrome. II. The significance of serum inhibition and rosette inhibitory factors. Clinical and Experimental Immunology 38(2): 198-203

Serum inhibition factors (SIF) that suppress phytohaemagglutinin-induced blast transformation of normal lymphocytes, and lymphocyte E-rosette inhibitory factors (RIF) that inhibit the T cell-specific property of E-rosette formation were determined in sixty-five patients before and after cardiac surgery. SIF was found in the first post-operative week in almost all patients; patients with complete post-pericardiotomy syndrome (PPS) still had these factors in the fourth postoperative week. The appearance of SIF correlated well with the intensity of the PPS. Persistence of SIF in eleven out of eighteen patients with clinically incomplete PPS reaffirms the probability that they had an 'immunologically' positive PPS. RIF was to be found in one third of the patients with complete or incomplete PPS and may be of prognostic value. The two factors were not identical.
