Abstract

Objective: To measure superoxide anion production of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNLs) in 58 gynecologic cancer patients and compare to that of healthy controls. Methods: PMNLs were separated from peripheral blood samples by Ficoll and subsequent Percoll gradient sedimentation. Baseline and phorbol-dibutyrate (100 nmol/l) stimulated superoxide anion production was measured spectrophotometrically as superoxide dismutase inhibitable reduction of ferricytochrome c (50 μmol/l) absorbance. Differences between the mean superoxide anion production of different patient groups and the control group were assessed by Student's t-test. Results: The mean superoxide anion production of PMNLs of healthy controls was 1.855 nM/min/3·105 cells (SD=0.211 nM/min/3·105 cells). Superoxide anion production of gynecologic cancer patients and healthy controls varied in a wide range. PMNLs of patients had lower baseline and stimulated activity than those of healthy volunteers. The frequency of a mean superoxide production at least 2xSD below the control showed a parallel increase with advancing stage. Conclusion: Granulocytes of gynecologic cancer patients have reduced capacity and inducibility of superoxide anion production already at an early stage of disease.
