The current study explored the characteristics of γδ T cells in the blood of HBV-associated acute-on-chronic liver failure (HBV-ACLF) patients and examined the relationship between γδ T cells and the clinical parameters. Blood samples were obtained from 26 patients with HBV-ACLF, 40 patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection (CHBV), and 25 healthy controls (HC). The frequencies of γδ T cells, subtype Vδ1T or Vδ2T, and CD45RO+γδ T cells were determined using flow cytometry… CONTINUE READING
