Modulation of the cellular and humoral immune response to pediatric open heart surgery by methylprednisolone.

Abstract

BACKGROUND With the intention to reduce overshooting immune response, glucocorticoids are frequently administered perioperatively in children undergoing open heart surgery. In a retrospective study we investigated extensively the modulation of the humoral and cellular immune response by methylprednisolone (MP). METHODS This study was carried out on blood… (More)
