Increased neopterin concentrations in body fluids are found in diseases associated with activated, cell-mediated immunity including infections, autoimmune diseases, and certain malignancies. Monocytes/macrophages are known to secrete large amounts of neopterin upon stimulation with interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma). Ontogenetically, the major part of dendritic(More)
Dendritic cells produce IL-12 both in response to microbial stimuli and to T cells, and can thus skew T cell reactivity toward a Th1 pattern. We investigated the capacity of dendritic cells to elaborate IL-12 with special regard to their state of maturation, different maturation stimuli, and its regulation by Th1/Th2-influencing cytokines. Monocyte-derived(More)
Skin dendritic cells (DC) express C-type lectin receptors for the recognition of pathogens. Langerhans cells (LC) express the receptor Langerin/CD207, whereas DEC-205/CD205 is mainly expressed by dermal DC, but can also be detected at low levels on LC. In this study, we tested an ex vivo approach for targeting DC in situ with monoclonal antibodies (mAb)(More)
