BACKGROUND Dysfunctional antigen presentation may underlie the impaired antibody response to hepatitis B vaccination in hemodialysis patients. Dendritic cells are considered to be the most important(More)
OBJECTIVE Dendritic cell (DC) mediated allo-antigen presentation to host antigen specific T-lymphocytes initiates acute allograft rejection. We investigated peripheral blood DC (PBDC) incidence and(More)
Allo-Ag presentation to Ag-specific T-lymphocytes by donor or recipient dendritic cells (DCs) induces acute rejection (AR) after solid organ transplantation. It is postulated that myeloid (mDC) and(More)
OBJECTIVES Dendritic cells (DCs) are antigen presenting cells that play a central role in inflammation, allograft rejection and immune tolerance. Myeloid (mDC) and plasmacytoid (pDC) subsets regulate(More)
BACKGROUND Dysregulation of dendritic cell (DC) mediated immune responses towards auto-antigens, is considered an important feature in the maintenance of experimentally induced heart failure (HF). In(More)
