αEβ7 Expression on CD8+ T-Cells in COPD BAL Fluid and on TGF-β Stimulated T-Cells In Vitro

Abstract

The airway inflammation in patients with COPD shows increased numbers of CD8+ T-cells. Until now few studies have shown any functional data indicating a role for these cells in the pathogenesis of COPD. This paper focuses on a subset of CD8+ T-cells present in human lung, the intra-epithelial lymphocytes expressing the integrin αEβ7, and their presence in… (More)
