Background: The cells of the immune system are actively involved in the tumor development process and can either suppress or stimulate tumor growth. Objective: to determine the role and significance of immunological indications of patients with brain tumors of different histostructure before and after surgical treatment. Methods: The number of lymphocytes, neutrophilic granulocytes, and platelets was analyzed in 246 patients with brain tumors of various histostructures. Results: It was determined that there were significant fluctuations in the content of leukocytes in the blood of patients with brain tumors of various histogenesis. The largest number of leukocytes was observed in neuroectodermal and mesenchymal tumors. However, neuroepithelial tumors (pituitary adenomas) did not show a considerable increase in the number of leukocytes compared with that in healthy individuals. Conclusions: It is revealed that the determination of the immune response is an essential component of clinical examination. These immune response options allow to develop targeted immunotherapy. The determination of immunoreactivity for these options was determined to be clinically feasible. In addition, belonging to a particular group based on the immune status considerably determines the further course of the tumor process and the effectiveness of the surgical treatment of brain tumors.
