Analysis of immune cells and vaccine antibody response in humans after thymectomy

Hayter, Scott


Introduction and aim: The immunological effects of thymectomy in adults are largely unknown. Several studies following thymectomised children have concluded that immunological ageing may be precipitated by thymectomy, which has serious long-term implications. We set out to investigate the immunological impact of thymectomy in adults and to determine if immunological ageing is expedited, or vaccine poor responses are influenced by, thymectomy in adults. Methods: We performed a retrospective...[Show more]
