CD4(+)CD25(+)Foxp3(+) natural regulatory T cells (T reg cells) maintain self-tolerance and suppress autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In addition to their effects on T cells, T reg cells are essential for maintaining normal numbers of dendritic cells (DCs): when T reg cells are depleted, there is a(More)
Chronic infection with Plasmodium falciparum was epidemiologically associated with endemic Burkitt's lymphoma, a mature B cell cancer characterized by chromosome translocation between the c-myc oncogene and Igh, over 50 years ago. Whether infection promotes B cell lymphoma, and if so by which mechanism, remains unknown. To investigate the relationship(More)
CD4 + CD25 + Foxp3 + natural regulatory T cells (T reg cells) are essential for maintaining self-tolerance (Kim et al., 2007; Sakaguchi et al., 2008). The loss of these cells leads to a fatal autoimmune syndrome affecting multiple organs (Sakaguchi et al., 1995; Kronenberg and Rudensky, 2005). In addition, these cells interfere with the development of(More)
