Gesund oder krank: Das Immunsystem entscheidet

Jeder Mensch verfügt über ein leistungsfähiges Immunsystem, das ihn sicher durch die ständig lauernden Gesundheitsgefahren der Umgebung leitet. Entgleist diese körpereigene Abwehr oder läßt ihre Einsatzfreude nach, wird der Mensch krank. Arnold Hilgers und Inge Hofmann zeigen, wie die moderne Medizin die Geheimnisse und tips dieser inneren Schutztruppen entschlüsselt hat und vielen Feinden des Immunsystems auf die Schliche gekommen ist.

This quantity is a realistic biochemical advisor to the Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA), used to become aware of a goal substance in a liquid pattern. The ELISA is a crucial and regular diagnostic software in drugs, animal well-being, botany and caliber insurance procedures in foodstuff and beverage construction.

Rev. Immunol. 23:23-68. org by HINARI on 08/26/07. For personal use only. Role of OX40 in Alloresponses and Cancer Deficiency in OX40 or OX40L does not alter T cell proliferation in a mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR) (116, 145) but OX40L–/– DC induce less effector cytokines than WT APC (116) and induce weaker allo-CTL responses (15), consistent with earlier evidence that OX40 is important in alloresponses (163). Similarly, administration of blocking antibodies to OX40L can ameliorate lethal GVHD in mice (164).

Anti-4-1BB therapy of MRL/lpr mice appears to induce deletion of B cells via an IFN-γ -dependent mechanism (218). A similar effect on progressive depletion of B cells is seen in mice constitutively expressing 4-1BBL under the control of an MHC class II promoter (222) or in mice expressing a CD70 transgene (85). These findings suggest that too much costimulation, particularly under conditions of chronic stimulation, can lead to the production of cytokines such as IFN-γ at levels that inhibit cell proliferation.

Thus, its expression pattern suggests that GITR on activated T cells most likely receives signals from GITRL on APCs, early after initial T cell activation. Function of GITR as a Costimulator of Conventional T Cells Evidence for a costimulatory role for GITR on T cells comes from studies of GITRL or anti-GITR stimulation of T cells. Anti-GITR or GITRL can costimulate proliferation of naive, Th1, or Th2 CD4 T cells and CD8 T cells in the presence of suboptimal concentrations of anti-CD3 (41, 42, 295, 297, 299, 300).
