Supplementary Material

Supplementary figure 1 (S1) provides individual patient's percentages of immunosuppressive MDSCs subpopulations in the peripheral blood of NSCLC patients before any systemic treatment compared to healthy donors (p value is determined by Mann-Whitney test).

In the supplementary figure 2 (S2), percentages of monocytic-MDSC and granulocytic-MDSC subpopulations in NSCLC patients according to tumour stage are showed before any treatment (p values are determined by Mann-Whitney test).
