Immunosuppression and monocyte subsets.


BACKGROUND Monocytes are critical in innate immunity and transplantation. Three monocyte subsets exist, CD14(++)CD16(-), CD14(++)CD16(+) and CD14(+)CD16(++) monocytes; cell counts of CD14(++)CD16(+) and CD14(+)CD16(++) monocytes are increased in pre-transplant chronic kidney disease. Interestingly, the effect of immunosuppressants on monocyte heterogeneity… (More)
