Postoperative pain significantly suppresses cell-mediated immunity (CMI). Effective postoperative analgesia can improve CMI and reduce cancer recurrence and metastasis. This article reviews the influence of different analgesic agents and techniques on perioperative immune function and long-term outcome of cancer patients, and the underlying mechanisms are described in detail.
