AIMS To confirm the recent data obtained in mice, showing that the Fas ligand (FasL) is involved in the phenomenon of "immune privilege" (the apparent defect of the immune system in specific anatomical sites) and to extend this finding to humans. METHODS The expression of FasL was analysed in a panel of histologically normal human tissues by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction and Western blotting. The tissues sampled were brain, breast, bone marrow, oesophagus, kidney, liver… CONTINUE READING
