Tregitope update: mechanism of action parallels IVIg.

Abstract

In the course of screening immunoglobulin G (IgG) sequences for T cell epitopes, we identified novel Treg epitope peptides, now called Tregitopes, contained in the highly conserved framework regions of Fab and Fc. Tregitopes may provide one explanation for the expansion and stimulation of Treg cells following intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) therapy. Their… (More)
