BACKGROUND In this study, our objective was to determine whether a perioperative hemodynamic protocol based on noninvasive cardiac output monitoring decreases the incidence of postoperative complications and hospital length of stay in major abdominal surgery patients requiring intensive care unit admission. Secondary objectives were the time to peristalsis(More)
Determination of T lymphocyte subsets using monoclonal antibodies revealed a deficiency of suppressor cells and an elevated helper:suppressor T cell ratio in 7 patients with untreated idiopathic immune complex glomerulonephritis and nephrotic syndrome. Possible pathogenetic mechanisms of immunoregulatory cell imbalance and their implications specifically in(More)
Monoclonal antisera against helper (serum OKT4) and suppressor (serum OKT8) T cells were employed in a complement-dependent lymphocytotoxicity reaction to isolate helper and suppressor T cells from peripheral blood mononuclear cells. When prepared by this method, helper and suppressor T cells had a purity of 67.8 percent and 78.8 percent, respectively.(More)
T lymphocyte subsets were determined in 12 patients with untreated systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and in 14 healthy controls. Six out of 8 (75%) patients with lupus nephritis had reduction in the percentage of T helper cells and low helper: suppressor cell ratios compared with controls. None of the 4 patients without nephritis had low ratios.(More)
