BACKGROUND The uniqueness of adolescent and young adult (AYA) non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) with respect to biology and treatment have largely remained unanswered due to marked heterogeneity in treatment, paucity of prospective, or retrospective studies and poor representation of AYA in clinical trials. This audit attempts to put forward the(More)
T cells produce a number of cytokines and chemokines upon stimulation with TLR agonists in the presence or absence of TCR signals. Here, we show that secretion of neutrophil chemoattractant CXCL8 from human T cell line Jurkat in response to stimulation with TLR agonists is reduced when cell stimulation is carried out in presence of serum. Serum does not,(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play a major part in providing innate immunity against pathogenic microorganisms. Recent studies show that these receptors are also expressed on T cells, which are the sentinels of adaptive immunity. Here, we have investigated the regulatory role of the T-cell receptor in the functioning of these innate receptors in T cells. We(More)
Vi capsular polysaccharide is currently in use as a vaccine against human typhoid caused by Salmonella Typhi. The vaccine efficacy correlates with IgG anti-Vi Abs. We have recently reported that Vi can generate inflammatory responses through activation of the TLR2/TLR1 complex. In the present study, we show that immunization with Vi produces IgM as well as(More)
TLRs have a fundamental role in immunity. We have recently reported that stimulation of TLR2 and TLR5 in freshly isolated and activated human T cells with microbial ligands without concomitant activation through the TCR brings about secretion of neutrophil chemoattractant, CXCL8, and effector cytokine, IFN-γ, respectively. However, the mechanism of TLR(More)
