Cellular and molecular bases for the immunopathology of the myocardial cell damage involved in acute viral myocarditis with special reference to dilated cardiomyopathy.

Abstract

Cell-mediated autoimmunity has been strongly implicated in the pathogenesis of the myocardial cell damage involved in viral myocarditis. To investigate the cellular and molecular bases of both target cells and effector cells for cell-mediated cytotoxicity involved in viral myocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy, we first examined the expression of major… (More)
