These results show that at 7 days postinfection, T lymphocytes were developed specifically in response to Listeria infection.
The development of T lymphocytes with increased ability to secrete and reutilize IL-2 was observed even at 3 days postexposure.
These T lymphocytes
activate and release messenger substances (cytokines) that increase the immune response and stimulate the production of antibodies by B lymphocytes.
Vaccinia virus-specific CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes
Memory and distribution of virus-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes
(CTLs) and CTL precursors after rotavirus infection.
The iPS cells then generated fully active, cancer-specific T lymphocytes
Association of depression, CD8+ T lymphocytes
, and natural killer cell activity: Implications for morbidity and mortality in human immunodeficiency virus disease.
In test-tube experiments, they found that the vpr protein spurs healthy T lymphocytes
to initiate programmed cell death.
T-cell - Immune defense cells, also known as T lymphocytes
Sustained increases in T lymphocytes
as well as in neutrophil and platelet counts were seen, suggesting that Xcellerated T Cells may also have positive effects on elements of the hematological system.
ARIAD's GvHD product involves infusion of donor T lymphocytes
engineered with a gene encoding an inactive apoptosis (cell death) protein.
Using radioactive assays to measurethe number of cells killed, scientists in France and the United States discovered that some of the blood cells called T lymphocytes
turn into killers when confronted with other cells infected with the AIDS virus (HIV).
The first-generation GvHD treatment, developed by Professor Claudio Bordignon, director of the gene therapy and cell transplantation center at the Hospital San Raffaele in Milan, Italy, involved infusion of donor T lymphocytes
(white blood cells) engineered with a gene encoding a herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (HSV-tk).
In a study of homosexual men without overt signs of AIDS, 33 of 67 men who showed signs fo recent cytomegalovirus infection had an abnormal ratio between two types of white blood cells called T lymphocytes
The ARGENT GvHD product includes infusion of donor T lymphocytes
engineered with a gene encoding an inactive apoptosis protein.
