    ABSTRACT: To observe the monocytic expression of CD(40) and plasma IL-8 concentration in senile CHD (coronary heart disease) patients with depressive disorder and examine the effects of immunological factors in depressive disorder and CHD. A total of 100 senile CHD patients (> 60 yr old) were divided into 3 group: control group (A, n = 30), depression score ≤ 20 & anxiety score ≤ 6; therapy group (B, n = 35), depression score ≥ 30 & anxiety score ≤ 6, psychological evaluations with HAMD (Hamilton depression rating scale) from Day 1 pre-operation to Day 7 post-operation; non-therapy group (C, n = 35), depression score ≥ 30 & anxiety score ≤ 6. They underwent the same operation: lumbar decompression & fusion, stripping of great saphenous vein and repair of indirect hernia. At Day 1 pre-operation and Day 7 post-operation, 2 ml venous blood was drawn for the detection of monocytic expression of CD(40) and plasma concentration of IL-8 (interleukin-8). Depressive value of Group B at post-operation was lower than that at pre-operation and Group C ((25.1 ± 2.9) vs (33.2 ± 1.4) & (34.2 ± 0.8), P < 0.05); the pre-operative expression of CD(40) of Group A was lower than the other groups ((123 ± 18) vs (197 ± 23) & (204 ± 26), P < 0.05). And Group B at post-operation was lower than Group C ((147 ± 19) vs (212 ± 18), P < 0.05); the pre-operative concentration of IL-8 was lowest in Group A ((85 ± 16) ng/L vs (151 ± 18) ng/L & (164 ± 22) ng/L, P < 0.05). And Group B at post-operation was lower than Group C ((158 ± 19) ng/L vs (197 ± 24) ng/L, P < 0.05). There were significantly positive correlations between depression scores, the expression of CD(40) and the plasma concentration of IL-8. Depressive disorders elevate the monocytic expression of CD(40) and raise the plasma concentration of IL-8 in senile CHD patients. Some immunological factors may play a important role in depressive disorder and CHD.
