Differential effects of myeloid dendritic cells retrovirally transduced to express mammalian or viral interleukin-10 on cytotoxic T lymphocyte and natural killer cell functions and resistance to tumor growth.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Genetic engineering of dendritic cells (DC) to express immunosuppressive molecule(s) offers potential for therapy of allograft rejection and autoimmune disease. Viral (v) interleukin (IL)-10, encoded by the Epstein-Barr virus, is highly homologous to mammalian (m) IL-10, but lacks certain of its T-cell stimulatory activities. Our aim was to… (More)
