The interplay between bacillus Calmette-Guérin and Treg cells and its role to prevent or cure inflammatory diseases.

Abstract

Clinical evidence indicates that Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination exerts anti-inflammatory effects in diseases such as asthma, multiple sclerosis or Type 1 diabetes. Although the exact mechanisms for this activity remain debated, the capacity of mycobacteria to induce regulatory T cells (Tregs) in vivo has been widely reported. However, adverse… (More)
