Elevated Th17 cells accompanied by decreased regulatory T cells and cytokine environment in infants with biliary atresia

Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of Th17 and Treg cells in biliary atresia (BA) and to assess the liver cytokine environment in BA patients. The percentages of Th17 and Treg cells in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of BA patients and healthy controls (HC) were evaluated. The serum concentrations of IL-17a and IL-23 as well as… (More)
