Objective. To analyze the content of peripheral blood lymphocyte subpopulations with cytotoxic, killer, and regulatory functions in female patients with recurrent implantation failures in assisted reproductive technology programs.
Subjects and methods. The investigation enrolled 48 patients with recurrent implantation failures in an IVF program and 26 fertile women with their last child aged less than 2 years.
Results. There was a reduction in T lymphocytes (CD3+) and T lymphocytes with cytotoxic function (CD3+CD8+) and an increase in innate immunity cells with both cytotoxic (CD3-CD8+) and killer (CD56+, CD16+, CD56,16+) functions. The group patients showed a significant rise in gd+Т cell levels in a cryo-cycle (p = 0.005).
Conclusion. In patients with recurrent implantation failures, the composition of lymphocyte subpopulations is characterized by a decrease in T lymphocytes (CD3+) and T lymphocytes with cytotoxic function (CD3+CD8+) and by an increase in innate immunity cells with both cytotoxic and killer functions.
