Blood transfusion practices affect CD4+ CD25+ FOXP3+ regulatory T cells/T helper-17 cells and the clinical outcome of geriatric patients with hip fracture

Flow cytometry analysis of CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ Tregs and CD4+IL17+ T cells in HF patients before surgery, 48 h after surgery, and 7 d after surgery (A). The statistical histogram shows the changes in Tregs, Th17+ cells and the ratio of Treg/Th17 cells in HF patients at the three different time points (B).
