  • We analyzed whether normal human hepatocytes, which normally do not display Class II major histocompatibility complex antigens, can be induced to express them in vitro, and whether this induction has an in vivo counterpart in chronic liver diseases. While both α‐ and γ‐interferon induced expression of Class I antigens, only γ‐interferon induced expression of Class II antigens on hepatocytes in vitro. Recombinant interleukin 2 had no effect on major histocompatibility complex antigen expression… CONTINUE READING
