Identification of pathogen receptors on dendritic cells to understand their function and to identify new drug targets.
TLDR
This chapter will discuss techniques to identify and functionally characterize pathogen receptors on DCs and to determine whether DCs elicit protective immune responses or whether pathogens subvert these responses to escape immunity.
Human Dendritic Cell Subsets for Vaccination
TLDR
Increased understanding of dendritic cells pathophysiology will permit their rational manipulation for therapy such as vaccination to improve immunity.
Dendritic-cell control of pathogen-driven T-cell polarization
TLDR
It is becoming increasingly clear that the selective development of T-cell-polarizing DC subsets is related to the ligation of particular receptors that are involved in DC maturation, and several inconsistencies with this concept remain.
Exploiting dendritic cells for active immunotherapy of cancer and chronic infection.
TLDR
This chapter presents a brief overview of DC biology and the preparation and use of DC-based vaccines.
Exploiting dendritic cells for active immunotherapy of cancer and chronic infections
TLDR
A brief overview of DC biology and of the preparation and use of DC-based vaccines is presented.
Dendritic cell biology in herpesvirus infections.
TLDR
Mature DC maturation is characterized by an increase in antigen processing efficiency as well as upregulation of surface expression of MHC and CD40, CD80, CD83and CD86, all of which are required for successful im-mune stimulation.
25th Anniversary Edition: Human Dendritic Cell Subsets for Vaccination
TLDR
The immune system evolved to protect us from microorganisms through cells, such as macrophages, granulocytes, dendritic cells, and lymphocytes, and through effector proteins such as cytokines, antimicrobial peptides, complement, and antibodies.

TLDR
Understanding of human intestinal dendritic cells is summarized, including their ability to express and induce migration markers, the various environmental factors modulating their properties, their subsets in the gut, and the problems entailed by their study, including identification strategies, differences between humans and murine models, and phenotypical variations along the gastrointestinal tract.
The interactions between human dendritic cells and microbes; possible clinical applications of dendritic cells
TLDR
The interactions between human dendritic cells, important components of the intima of arterial specimens at areas predisposed to atherosclerotic lesions, and Chlamydia pneumoniae and cytomegalovirus, the human pathogens most strongly implicated in the development of atherosclerosis are reviewed.

Immunobiology of dendritic cells.
TLDR
Dendritic cells are antigen-presenting cells with a unique ability to induce primary immune responses and may be important for the induction of immunological tolerance, as well as for the regulation of the type of T cell-mediated immune response.
Mouse and human dendritic cell subtypes
TLDR
The dynamics of the DC network in response to microbial invasion is studied, because many DC subtypes arise from separate developmental pathways, and their development and function are modulated by exogenous factors.
The plasticity of dendritic cell responses to pathogens and their components.
TLDR
The results reveal that dendritic cells sense diverse pathogens and elicit tailored pathogen-specific immune responses.
