Parameters of the immune status of the patients during exacerbation and under treatment were investigated. It was revealed that during exacerbation of stomatitis the quantity of CD3, CD4, cytophagous activity, and NK were diminished. Indices of CD8, CD72, and IgA, were within the norm. Indices of IgM, IgG, IgE, parameter of IL-6, antimicrobial and antitoxic antibody titer were increased. After treatment increase and approach to standard CD3, CD4, NK, and parameters of phagocytosis.
