Mycobacterium tuberculosis heat‐shock protein 70 impairs maturation of dendritic cells from bone marrow precursors, induces interleukin‐10 production and inhibits T‐cell proliferation in vitro
In different inflammatory disease models, heat‐shock proteins (hsp) and hsp‐derived peptides have been demonstrated to possess anti‐inflammatory properties. While some studies have shown that hsp canExpand
