The balance of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and/or interleukin-4 (IL-4) producing T cells and interleukin-12 receptor (IL-12R) expression on T cells were evaluated in patients with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Assessment of intracellular IFN-gamma and/or IL-4 were conducted with cytoplasmic staining. IL-12R presenting T cells were also… CONTINUE READING
