Enhanced cytotoxic response of natural killer cells to interleukin-2 in Alzheimer's disease.

Experimental data suggest an involvement of immune cellular components in the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Against this background, the spontaneous natural killer (NK) cell activity and the NK-induced cytotoxicity after interleukin-2 (IL-2) were studied in healthy elderly subjects and in patients with dementia of Alzheimer type (SDAT) and multi… CONTINUE READING
