B and T lymphocyte attenuator is highly expressed on intrahepatic T cells during chronic HBV infection and regulates their function

Abstract

T cell antiviral function is impaired during chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Programmed death-1 (PD-1) impairs antiviral T cell responses, but dysfunction is not always reversed by blockade of PD-1 pathway. Whether distinct T cell populations expressing different sets of inhibitory molecules exist has not been determined. We studied the expression of the B and T… (More)
