Abstract

Dexamethasone is frequently administered to surgical patients for anti-emetic prophylaxis. We have examined the immunomodulatory effects of a single bolus of dexamethasone on circulating peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in the same 10 healthy male volunteers, previously used in our investigation on early in vivo effects of a single anti-emetic dose of dexamethasone on innate immune cell gene expression and activation [1]. Blood samples were drawn at baseline, 2 h, 4 h and 24 h. Immune cell phenotypes were examined with flow cytometry. In this data article the expression strength of markers involved in immune activation and immunosuppression as well as maturation, migration, cell de..
