The chronic presence of viral Ags can induce T cell exhaustion, which is characterized by upregulation of coinhibitory receptors and loss of T cell function. We studied whether a similar phenomenon occurs after liver transplantation (LTx), when there is continuous exposure to alloantigen. Expression of coinhibitory receptors on circulating CD4(+) and CD8(+)(More)
Background Mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells might play a role in control of viral replication during chronic hepatitis B (cHBV) infection, but little is known of their number, phenotype, or function in cHBV patients. Methods We performed flow cytometry on CD3+Vɑ7.2+CD161+ MAIT cells in blood of 55 cHBV patients. Nine patients were sampled(More)
In this prospective, observational, 2-armed study, we compared the plasma amino acid profiles of patients undergoing awake craniotomy to those undergoing craniotomy under general anesthesia. Both experimental groups were also compared with a healthy, age-matched and sex-matched reference group not undergoing surgery. It is our intention to investigate(More)
