CD4+CD25+ T lymphocytes in human tonsils suppress the proliferation of CD4+CD25- tonsil cells.


Animal studies define CD4+CD25+ T cells as a subset that protect against autoimmune inflammation. We wanted to investigate whether CD4+CD25+ T cells from patients with recurrent tonsillitis could suppress the proliferation of other tonsil cells, in vitro, as this immunological tissue also may serve as a model for chronic inflammation. Tonsil CD4+CD25+ cells… (More)
