Abnormalities in CD4+ T lymphocyte
subsets in patients with common variable immunodeficiency.
In addition to stimulating B lymphocytes, Th2 cells suppress the cytotoxic T lymphocyte
response, decreasing the robustness of cell-mediated immunity.
Induction of cytotoxic T lymphocyte
development from murine thymocytes by IL-1 and IL-6.
When a T lymphocyte
is activated by a parasite, it commits itself and becomes specific to this parasite, which will thereafter be the only activator of this sensitized lymphocyte.
Key words: allergy, asthma, dust mites, eosinophil, feed restriction; IgE, immune response, inflammation, lung, T lymphocyte
, tumor necrosis factor-[Alpha].
ENV-specific cytotoxic T lymphocyte
responses in HIV seronegative health care workers occupationally exposed to HIV-contaminated body fluids.
The Universite Louis Pasteur researchers tested the response of newborn mice to each type of T lymphocyte
and to both together.
Long-lived cytotoxic T lymphocyte
memory in mucosal tissues after mucosal but not systemic immunization.
Washington, January 4 ( ANI ): In a new study, researchers claim to have succeeded for the first time in creating cancer-specific, immune system cells called killer T lymphocytes
, from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells).
Also see Evans 2002 (3): "Our findings provide the first evidence that depression may alter the function of killer lymphocytes in HIV-infected women and suggest that depression may decrease natural killer cell activity and lead to an increase in activated CD8 T lymphocytes
and viral load" (quote from the abstract).
There are, for example, reports demonstrating the feasibility of assessing CD38 expression levels on CD8 + T lymphocytes
through quantitative cytometric analyses (3-5).
The concentration of CD4 T lymphocytes
, the infection-fighting white cells that decline dramatically during the course of AIDS, went from an initial average of 140 cells per cubic millimeter of blood on a slide to a healthier value of 360 cells per cubic millimeter.
