Dendritic cells (DCs) are the most powerful antigen presenting cells, capable of inducing T-dependent immune responses even in naive T cells. DCs are of special interest as cellular adjuvants for immunity induction in clinical settings and several methods for their generation and maturation are recently under investigation. The present study was set out to define the effects of PPD (Purified Protein Derivative), a mycobacterial extract used in the tuberculin skin test, on in vitro… CONTINUE READING
