More about Tcells. CD8+ Tcells dysregulation

Post by frodo » Thu Jun 27, 2019 12:48 am

Alteration of CD8+ CD45RC in MS regulatory T cells functions

For the first time, we demonstrate an impairment of CD8+CD45RC(int) Tregs

We propose to define two populations of CD8+CD45RC Tregs:
  • CD8+CD45RC(int) are dysfunctional in severe MS patients and less frequent during exacerbations
  • CD8+CD45RC(neg) Tregs react properly to inflammation with enhanced regulatory functions during exacerbations
We suggest CD8+ CD45RC(int/neg) T cells and subsets may be potential therapeutic targets and prognostic tools in MS
