Interleukin-1 polymorphisms associated with increased risk of gastric cancer
Helicobacter pylori infection is associated with a variety of clinical outcomes including gastric cancer and duodenal ulcer disease. The reasons for this variation are not clear, but the gastricExpand

Pathogenesis of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in cynomolgus macaques: evidence that dendritic cells are early and sustained targets of infection.
Ebola virus (EBOV) infection causes a severe and fatal hemorrhagic disease that in many ways appears to be similar in humans and nonhuman primates; however, little is known about the development ofExpand

Interleukin 2 plays a central role in Th2 differentiation.
Differentiation of naïve CD4 T cells into T helper (Th) 2 cells requires signaling through the T cell receptor and an appropriate cytokine environment. IL-4 is critical for such Th2 differentiation.Expand

Induction of interferon gamma production by natural killer cell stimulatory factor: characterization of the responder cells and synergy with other inducers
We previously reported that natural killer cell stimulatory factor (NKSF), a heterodimeric lymphokine purified from the conditioned medium of human B lymphoblastoid cell lines, induces interferonExpand

Indoleamine 2,3-Dioxygenase Production by Human Dendritic Cells Results in the Inhibition of T Cell Proliferation
Dendritic cells (DCs) play a key role in the activation and regulation of B and T lymphocytes. Production of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) by macrophages has recently been described to result inExpand

Pathogenesis of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in primate models: evidence that hemorrhage is not a direct effect of virus-induced cytolysis of endothelial cells.
Ebola virus (EBOV) infection causes a severe and often fatal hemorrhagic disease in humans and nonhuman primates. Whether infection of endothelial cells is central to the pathogenesis of EBOVExpand

Histamine regulates cytokine production in maturing dendritic cells, resulting in altered T cell polarization.
Atopic diseases such as allergy and asthma are characterized by increases in Th2 cells and serum IgE antibodies. The binding of allergens to IgE on mast cells triggers the release of severalExpand

Human endothelial cells express CCR2 and respond to MCP-1: direct role of MCP-1 in angiogenesis and tumor progression.
Although several CXC chemokines have been shown to induce angiogenesis and play roles in tumor growth, to date, no member of the CC chemokine family has been reported to play a direct role inExpand

Interaction of NF-kappaB and NFAT with the interferon-gamma promoter.
Interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) is a pleiotropic lymphokine whose production is restricted to activated T cells and NK cells. Along with other cytokines, IFN-gamma gene expression is inhibited by theExpand
