Abstract

Changes in lymphocyte populations were studied in 22 patients with testicular cancer before and after a single 2-Gy dose of a high-energy photon beam. Absolute lymphocyte counts as well as total T- and active T-cells markedly decreased immediately after irradiation, whereas no significant alterations in Fc receptor-bearing lymphocytes and B-cell counts were produced. Recovery of lymphocyte populations was relatively rapid, reaching pre-irradiaton values by 24-hours.
