Recent clinical trials have indicated the high potential of regulatory T cells (Tregs) in the prevention of acute and chronic graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, but immune interventions require large numbers of Tregs. With respect to their limited natural occurrence, development and optimization of protocols for(More)
Adoptively transferred regulatory T-cells represent a promising therapeutic approach for tolerance induction in autoimmunity and transplantation medicine. However, a major hurdle for clinical application is the manufacturing of sufficient Treg cell numbers with respect to the low frequency of naturally occurring Tregs in the peripheral blood. Therefore, ex(More)
PMM2-CDG, formerly known as congenital disorder of glycosylation-Ia (CDG-Ia), is caused by mutations in the gene encoding phosphomannomutase 2 (PMM2). This disease is the most frequent form of inherited CDG-diseases affecting protein N-glycosylation in human. PMM2-CDG is a multisystemic disease with severe psychomotor and mental retardation. In order to(More)
