The total number ofTCD2+- and B CD20+- lymphocytes as well as T lymphocyte subpopulations CD4 helper and CD8 suppressor were examined in peripheral blood of patients with RAU, to determine their role in the onset of this disease. The study was carried out in two groups: a group of patients with acute stage of RAU and a control group of healthy subjects. Lymphocyte values were determined in peripheral blood by the method of flow cytometry. The obtained results showed decreased B-lymphocyte values in peripheral blood in patients with RAU in relation to healthy subjects. However, T-lymphocytes showed increased values in 1-3 of the patients, which is statistically insignificant. CD4 lymphocyte values were also increased and statistically insignificant, while CD8 lymphocyte values were significantly decreased in patients with RA U in relation to healthy subjects.
