BACKGROUND Age and short leukocyte telomeres have been associated with a higher risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Inflammation is involved in AD and it is suggested that anti-inflammatory interleukin-10 (IL-10) may partly antagonize these processes. OBJECTIVE The aim is to correlate telomere length (TL) in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from(More)
We have examined the influence of the immunosuppressive cytokine TGF-beta on NK receptor expression by T lymphocytes upon allogeneic activation. Using the primary mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR), our data show that allostimulation induced the expression of CD94/NKG2-A on alloactivated CD8+ T cells. This expression was increased in the presence of TGF-beta(More)
We investigated IL-10 and IL-6 production in amyloid-β (Aβ) stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in twenty Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients with slow progression, eleven with fast progression, and twenty age-matched controls. Promoter polymorphisms in IL-10 (position -592, -819, -1082), IL-6 (-174), transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1)(More)
