Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), hitherto identified on activated B cells, macrophages, dendritic cells, endothelia and certain epithelial cells, serves as a ligand for the lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 (LFA-1). ICAM-1 binding by LFA-1 enhances the efficiency of lymphocyte-target cell and lymphocyte-accessory cell interactions. We have investigated the in-vitro expression of ICAM-1 by cultured thyroid cells from five patients with Graves' disease using indirect… CONTINUE READING
