In this report, the authors have concluded that occupational exposure of the personnel of X-ray departments has led to adverse immunological effects such as an increase in the total number of CD19+ cells and the associated decrease of CD5+CD19+ cells percentage and CD27+CD19+/CD19+ as well as CD5+CD19+/ CD19+ cell ratios that may suggest B cells dysfunction in the immune response against both non T-dependent and T-dependent antigens [1].
