Dendritic cells (DCs) are professional antigen-presenting cells essential for initiating T-cell responses. Their ability is regulated in a process known as maturation, by(More)
Allergy to beta-lactam antibiotics is the most frequent cause of drug-induced immunological reactions, although the prevalence is not exactly known. IgE- and T-cell-dependent responses are the main mechanisms involved, although other immunological mechanisms can also participate, especially in haematological abnormalities, such as immune haemolytic anaemia(More)
