Direct observation of the synovium via a confocal microscope clearly demonstrated the colocalization of IL-17 and CD8 in the RA patients (Figure 1), but this was not detected in the OA group.
Proliferative capacity of epitope-specific CD8 T-cell responses is inversely related to viral load in chronic human immunodeficiency virus type 1 infection.
Until now, scientists had assumed that T cell receptor and CD8 binding with the antigen took place at approximately the same time, reinforcing one another to make the intermolecular connection strong enough to trigger an immune response.
Observations of changes in CD38 expression on CD8 T cells in HIV-1-infected patients have shown that CD8 CD38-expressing T cells give an insight into viral replication [2,7,9-12,15-16,36].
