gammadelta T cells have previously been shown to play a protective role in various animal models of chronic inflammation (e.g., experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, collagen-induced arthritis, and non-obese diabetes). This immunoregulatory potential is exerted by synthesizing various anti-inflammatory cytokines and growth factors (e.g., transforming growth factor-beta).
