The CD28 homologue inducible costimulator (ICOS) has been demonstrated to regulate a number of T cell-dependent immune responses in vivo. However, the expression and functional importance of ICOS during APC-Th cell interaction in the human is not fully understood. Here, we demonstrate that ICOS-mediated signaling plays an important role in the production of(More)
Previous mouse studies have shown that IL-4 increases the expression of ICOS on activated Th cells, resulting in enhanced ICOS expression on Th2 cells. In this study, we show that ICOS expression on human Th cells is not increased by IL-4, but by IL-12 and by IL-23 instead. Consequently, ICOS expression during IL-12-driven Th1 cell polarization was(More)
The production of inflammatory mediators, relevant to (auto)immune diseases and chronic inflammatory conditions, can be modulated by dietary intake of n-3 and n-6 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). It was suggested that these effects are related to the formation of different series of eicosanoids, in particular prostaglandin-E (PGE). In this(More)
