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 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)
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)
