It has been recently demonstrated that regulatory CD4(+)CD25(+) CD45RO(+) T cells are present in the peripheral blood of healthy adults and exert regulatory function similar to their rodent counterparts. It remains difficult to understand how the small fraction of these T cells that regulate via direct cell-to-cell contact and not via secretion of(More)
It has been recently demonstrated that regulatory CD4 ϩ CD25 ϩ CD45RO ϩ T cells are present in the peripheral blood of healthy adults and exert regulatory function similar to their rodent counterparts.

CD4(+) CD25(+) regulatory T cells are increasingly recognized as central players in the regulation of immune responses. In vitro studies have mostly employed allogeneic or polyclonal responses to monitor suppression. Little is known about the ability of CD4(+) CD25(+) regulatory T cells to suppress antigen-specific immune responses in humans. It has been(More)
