An association between immune disorders and regulatory T cells (Treg) after incidental thymectomy has not been investigated. Questionnaires soliciting symptoms of atopic or autoimmune disease and biomarkers were measured in children and adults(More)
Neurotrophins (NTs) induce gene transcription by binding their high-affinity tropomyosin-related kinase (Trk) receptors and initiating intracellular signal transduction cascades.
