correlation between concentration of these cytokines in pleural fluid and a number of resected mediastinal lymph nodes was found (for IL-6: Spearman test: r=-0.723; p<0.001; for IL-1ra: r=-0.768; p<0.001). Number of "positive" N2 lymph nodes did not correlate with concentration of IL-1ra and IL-6 in pleural fluid. Conclusions: Systematic lymphadenectomy of the right mediastinum results in decrease of peripheral blood lymphocytes. The number of resected mediastinal lymph nodes negatively
