The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of combining antiangiogenic treatment, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) targeting and irradiation (RT). We evaluated AZD2171, a highly potent, orally active, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) signalling inhibitor, gefitinib, an EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor and RT. The antitumour efficacy(More)
Evidence has recently emerged that butyrophilins, which are members of the extended B7 family of co-stimulatory molecules, have diverse functions in the immune system. We found that the human and mouse genes encoding butyrophilin-2A2 (BTN2A2) are regulated by the class II trans-activator and regulatory factor X, two transcription factors dedicated to major(More)
Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) have been shown to both mediate and prevent autoimmunity, and the regulation of their immunogenic versus tolerogenic functions remains incompletely understood. Here we demonstrate that, compared to other cells, pDCs are the major expressors of Indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) in steady-state lymph nodes (LNs). IDO(More)
