We have found markedly deficient expression of the class I major histocompatibility antigens HLA-A,B,C and beta 2m on human small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) lines and fresh tumor samples. The deficit of HLA-A,B,C and beta 2-microglobulin (beta 2m) antigen expression was demonstrated with both radiobinding assays and indirect immunofluorescence assays.(More)
Cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen (CTLA)-4 plays an essential role in immunologic homeostasis. How this negative regulator of T cell activation executes its functions has remained controversial. We now provide evidence that CTLA-4 mediates a cell-intrinsic counterbalance to restrict the clonal expansion of proliferating CD4(+) T cells. The regulation of CTLA-4(More)

We trained local high school students with the goal that these students would stay in the villages for long-term, become health advocates and shift the reliance away from physicians.
