lym·pho·cyte

(lĭm′fə-sīt′)
Any of various white blood cells that function in the body's immune system by recognizing and deactivating specific foreign substances called antigens. Certain lymphocytes (called B cells) act by stimulating the production of antibodies. Others (T cells) contain receptors on their cell surfaces that are capable of recognizing and binding to specific antigens.

CyQUANT[R]NF Cell Proliferation Assay Kit (Invitrogen) was used to measure hASC capacity to inhibit activated lymphocyte proliferation.
CD69 expression on activated lymphocyte surfaces was found to have increased significantly on both [CD4.sup.+] T and [CD8.sup.+] T lymphocyte surfaces when the PBMCs stimulated by MRSA were compared to PBMCs not stimulated by MRSA after 24 and 48 h.
It is designed to modulate and suppress pathological immune activation without lymphocyte activation by selectively delivering a modified form of IL-10 to antigen presenting cells via CD86 without stimulating IL-10 responses on resting and activated lymphocytes. Cytokines are pleiotropic and function by promoting or suppressing a variety of cellular functions, including inflammatory responses.
Selective binding with S1PR1 is thought to suppress a specific sub set of activated lymphocytes from migrating to sites of inflammation, which is likely to decrease circulating T and B lymphocytes that result in anti-inflammatory activity.
have investigated the role of CD73 in the migration of activated lymphocytes to inflamed skin, in the context of idiopathic and allergic disorders of the skin.
These activated lymphocytes increase eosinophils, proinflammatory cytokines, and other mediators, which can be aggravated further in disease conditions such as neurocysticercosis.
Furthermore, the aerobic exercise training would have a positive influence in activating immune markers of activated lymphocytes and controlling local inflammation.
While the precise mechanism of action of ZINBRYTA is unknown, it is thought to work differently from other disease-modifying therapies by binding to CD25, a subunit of the interleukin-2 (IL-2) receptor found on activated lymphocytes, cells believed to underlie the biology of MS.
HIV infection of the gastrointestinal tract leads to an increase in lipopolysaccharide (LPS) which can stimulate hepatocytes, KCs and HSCs to produce pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines which attract activated lymphocytes and monocytes to the liver which may further drive fibrosis.
Research shows that CEACAM1-CEACAM1 interactions have an inhibitory effect on activated lymphocytes, and that prevention of these CEACAM1-CEACAM1 interactions enables enhanced killing of tumor cells by T and NK immune cells.
Complete blood counts showed a discreet perturbation common in many viral infections (mild leukopenia and thrombocytopenia associated with activated lymphocytes).
It was found that unstimulated PBMCs are less susceptible to PPRV infection than PHA activated lymphocytes. A dose dependent increase in proportion of infected PBMCs is seen in non-stimulated PBMCs.
