Aims and background. Impairment of immune surveillance in the immediate postoperative period may accelerate the growth of tumor cells that remain despite radical resection in advanced cases. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the impact of major surgical trauma on host cellular immunity of gastric carcinoma cases.
