Increased regulatory versus effector T cell development is associated with thymus atrophy in mouse models of multiple myeloma.


CD4(+)CD25(+)Foxp3(+) regulatory T cells (Tregs) play a central role in cancer tolerance. However, mechanisms leading to their accumulation in cancer remain unknown. Although the thymus is the main site of Treg development, thymic contribution to Treg expansion in cancer has not been directly examined. Herein, we used two murine models of multiple myeloma… (More)
