Innate immunity operates in conjunction with adaptive immunity and is characterized by rapid response to aggression, regardless of previous stimulus, being the organism first line of(More)
Several studies report on lymphocyte phenotypic and functional abnormalities in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). Freezing and thawing may alter functional and phenotypic properties of cells. We assessed the effect of the freezing/thawing process (F/T) on Th1 (CD3(+)CD4(+)CCR4(-)CXCR3(+)CCR5(+)), Th2 (CD3(+)CD4(+)CCR5(-)CXCR3(-)CCR4(+)), Th17(More)
