We show here that the anti-T lymphocyte immunoglobulin (ATG) can induce Treg cells following 24-h incubation in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). The ATG-induced Treg cells express known cell surface markers (e.g., CD25, FoxP3) and suppress the proliferation of autologous responder PBMCs, stimulated with allogeneic PBMCs, when added into the(More)
Although ophthalmopathy is mainly associated with Graves' hyperthyroidism, milder eye changes are also found in about 25% of patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT). The recent finding of negative thyrotropin receptor (TSHR) antibodies, as measured in the Thyretain™ thyroid-stimulating immunoglobulin (TSI) reporter bioassay, in patients with euthyroid(More)
PURPOSE Detection and modulation of effector T cells specific to immunodominant epitopes is a central issue in autoimmune diseases. Experimental autoimmune uveitis is a model for human autoimmune uveitis, induced in B10.RIII mice with interphotoreceptor retinoid binding protein or with its immunodominant epitope encoded by residues 161-180. METHODS The(More)
