Co-cultivation of human thymocytes with homologous thymic epithelial cells (TEC) resulted in apoptosis of thymocytes and increase of CD25 expression. TEC supernatant also induced these effects. Fraction of apoptotic cells was enriched by CD69+ cells but not by CD95+ cells. Thymocytes of mice MRL-lpr/lpr bearing mutant form of gene Fas were sensitive to(More)
We compared the cultivation of human peripheral blood lymphocytes in serum-free medium Hybris-2 and RPMI 1640 medium with 10% fetal bovine serum in the presence of phytohemagglutinin and interleukin-2. The optimal concentration of phytohemagglutinin significantly differed in serum-free and serum-containing media (0.5 and 5 mg/ml, respectively). Both(More)
AIM To elucidate the effects of combined therapy with glucocorticosteroids (GCS) and recombinant human interferon alpha or gamma (IFN) on proliferative responses of T-lymphocytes activated by various surface molecules (CD3 and CD2) in patients with SLE. MATERIALS AND METHODS A 3-month trial entered 3 groups 15 patients each with verified SLE by APA(More)
Oxidized forms of fibrinogen similarly to initial non-oxidized fibrinogen induced expression of P-selectin and ICAM-1 cell adhesion molecules in the cultured endothelial cells derived from human umbilical vein. The effect of oxidized fibrinogen on the expression of adhesion molecules was more pronounced. These data attest to more active participation of(More)
Using flow cytometry we looked for a thymocyte subpopulation responsible for the development of thymus urgent recovery and secondary atrophy in sublethally irradiated mice (4 Gy). It was expected that the number of these cells would grow before the urgent recovery peak and would drop during secondary atrophy. It was found out that DN3 thymocytes were the(More)
Recovery and migration of T-cells from the thymus to the secondary lymphoid organs in mice after sublethal gamma irradiation were investigated by measuring T-cell receptor excision circles (TRECs). The TRECs level practically represents the cellularity of thymus, in particular it correlates with the quantity of T-cells which have rearranged TCR genes and(More)
The levels of T-cell activation through classical and alternative pathways were studied in persons participated in cleaning-up operations at Chernobyl N. P. P. Proliferation response of T-cells on the action of monoclonal antibody anti-CD3 (classical activation) as well as response on phytohaemagglutinin was partially decreased just as response on autologic(More)
AIM To study activation of T-lymphocytes by the CD3 (antigen-dependent) and CD2 (non-antigen-dependent) routes in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). MATERIALS AND METHODS Peripheral blood mononuclears were studied in 66 patients with SLE and 27 donors. Proliferative response to activation by anti-CD3, anti-CD3+(More)
Clinical and immunological investigation with immune status evaluation of three groups of adult population of Bryansk Region was performed. The first group included 165 persons living in Vyshkov (settlement of town type in Bryansk Region) contaminated with radionuclides as a result of Chernobyl accident. The second group included 68 persons living in(More)
