Th17 (IFNγ- IL17+) CD4+ T cells generated after burn injury may be a novel cellular mechanism for postburn immunosuppression.


BACKGROUND The mechanism responsible for initiating and controlling the immunosuppressive response after burn injury remains unknown. Interleukin-17 (IL-17) secreting Th17 (interferon [IFN]γ IL17) cells are a novel subset of CD4 T cells associated with a weak, proinflammatory response that antagonizes the proinflammatory Th1 (IFNγ IL17) response. Given that… (More)
