Effects of age and gonadal steroids on the localization of antigen-presenting cells
, and T and B cells in the chicken oviduct.
24),(66),(67) Our early work contributed to the establishment of PPs--components of GALT--as the inductive tissues for the mucosal immune system by showing the presence of antigen-presenting cells
(in addition to T and B cells) in PPs.
The T cells talk to the antigen-presenting cells
and, in response, make cytokines that launch an attack.
Chakraborty, a chemical engineer and biochemist by training, became interested in immunology after hearing about a paper on the immunological synapse, a crucial communications point for T cells and antigen-presenting cells
TCI taps into the unique benefits of a major group of antigen-presenting cells
found in the outer layers of the skin (Langerhans cells) to generate an enhanced immune response.
The vaccine is an autologous cellular product composed of antigen-presenting cells
enriched from peripheral blood mononuclear cells obtained via leukapheresis.
Targeted antigen delivery to antigen-presenting cells
including dendritic cells by engineered Fas-mediated apoptosis.
To make sure that foreign antigens are identified, some B cells serve as antigen-presenting cells
(or APCs), scooping up these fragments all over the body, and sailing around offering them on stick-like projections to the cells they pass.
But that has been because the peptides or viral particles used in the vaccines to provoke a response, when simply released into circulation, have not been taken up properly by antigen-presenting cells
of the immune system.
But a more effective approach may be to block the recipient's antigen-presenting cells
(APC), scavenger cells that actually trigger the T-lymphocyte attack.
16, will be based on the company's Vaccibody DNA vaccine platform, which targets antigen-presenting cells
A class of immune cells known as antigen-presenting cells
(APCs) helps to activate the bodys defenses against a range of threats, from viruses and bacteria to cancer.
Under the deal, Janssen will secure rights to develop and commercialise ADC-1013, an agonistic fully human monoclonal antibody, that targets CD40, an immuno-stimulatory receptor found on antigen-presenting cells
such as dendritic cells.
lucidum modulates the immune system, including, for example, antigen-presenting cells
, natural killer (NK) cells, and the T and B lymphocytes, the effects of G.
The study involved killer cells, known as CD8 T cells, and their instructor cells, known as antigen-presenting cells
