AbstractThe preoperative B-cell counts (CD 19+) appeared to be more reduced by laparoscopic prostatectomy when compared with open surgery. These findings are important because accumulating evidence suggest that the B-cell subsets emerged in response to prostate cancer exhibit association with unfavorable prognosis. High per cent of B- cells infiltrating tumor were shown to be associated with more aggressive disease. The B-cell depleting therapies used with different prostatectomy settings should be closely monitored to make timely adjustments to peripheral CD19+ counts
