CD45RBhigh CD4+ T cells from IFN-gamma knockout mice do not induce wasting disease.


Transfer of CD45RBhigh CD4+ T cells from normal mice to congenic SCID mice induces wasting disease, a murine model of inflammatory bowel disease. In this model, colonic inflammation is considered to be caused by a disregulated Th1 response, and Th1 cytokines, especially IFN-gamma, have been suggested to play an important role in the pathogenesis of wasting… (More)
