TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of prolonged administration of low doses of dietary retinoids on cell-mediated immunity and the growth of transplantable tumors in mice. AU - Forni, G.. AU - Cerruti Sola, S.. AU - Giovarelli, M.. AU - Santoni, A.. AU - Martinetto, P.. AU - Vietti, D.. PY - 1986. Y1 - 1986. N2 - A study was conducted on the activity exerted by prolonged dietary supplementation with progressive amounts of retinoids on cell-mediated immune response and the growth of transplantable tumors in mice. A few groups of BALB/c mice received 0 (group C), 50 (group A 50), 200 (group A 200), 500 (group A 500), and 1,000 (group A 1000) IU retinol palmitate/mouse/day in drinking water for 150 days. At progressive intervals mice from each group were tested for proliferative responses to concanavalin A (Con A), Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide, interleukin-2, and interferon-γ release to Con A. Ten mice from each group were also challenged with the 90-100% tumor-inducing dose of 3 distinct ...
Vaccine adjuvants facilitate the production of long-lasting, efficient and specific immune responses and improve the protective effect of vaccines due to a higher antibody yield and the persistence of antibodies, as well as functional T cells at high levels. Currently, the most common adjuvant used in experimental animals is Freunds adjuvants, which can enhance strong antigen-specific immune responses. However, it causes strong inflammation and necrosis at the injection site, which prevents its use in vaccine development. Aluminium-derived adjuvants are often used in clinical trials and have the reputation of safety and the facilitation of long-lasting antibody responses [1], but the effect on cell-mediated immunity remains questionable when used along with small immunogenic antigens. To develop safe and effective adjuvants for enhancing both humoral and cellular immune responses, we focused on the selection of novel immunofacilitators based on their roles in initiating innate and adaptive ...

s to protect the entry of. Chapter 8 T Cell-Mediated Immunity Once they have completed their development in the thymus , T cells enter the bloodstream and are carried by the circulation. The basics of B and T cell clonal selection and the various cellular interactions involved in the humoral and cell-mediated immune responses are the foundation knowledge of immunology needed for proceeding further in a study of virology. Cell-mediated immunity is an immune response that does not involve antibodies but rather involves the activation of macrophages, natural killer cells (NK), antigen-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes, and the release of various cytokines in response to an antigen. Humoral immunity (also called the antibody-mediated system) is the aspect of immunity that is mediated by macromolecules (as opposed to cell-mediated immunity) found in extracellular fluids such as secreted antibodies, complement proteins and certain antimicrobial peptides. This response is largely carried out by B-cells ...
Lesions begin with infection of a group of epithelial cells that are lysed following viral replication, creating small fluid-filled blisters or vesicles containing large numbers of infectious virions. Rupture of the vesicles produces painful ulcerations. Latency of the disease is incompletely understood. The viral DNA exists within nerve cells in a circular, non-infectious form during times when there are no symptoms. In this state, only a small portion of the HSV genome is transcribed. At times, however, the entire viral chromosome can be transcribed and complete infectious virions replicated. These reinfect the area supplied by the nerve and cause a recurrence. The mechanisms by which the latent infection is maintained or reactivated are not known in detail, but they probably depend on cellular immunity. ■ latent infections, p. 463 Genital herpes can pose a serious risk to newborn babies. If the mother has a primary infection near the time of delivery, the baby has about a one in three risk ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Impaired specific cell-mediated immunity in experimental biliary obstruction and its reversibility by internal biliary drainage. AU - Roughneen, Patrick T.. AU - Gouma, Dirk J.. AU - Kulkarni, Anil D.. AU - Fanslow, William F.. AU - Rowlands, Brian J.. PY - 1986/8. Y1 - 1986/8. N2 - Little is known of the effect of cholestasis on host immunity. This study evaluates lymphocytic responsiveness to PHA and LPS mitogen and to allogeneic F344 antigen in Sprague-Dawley rats 21 days following bile duct ligation and 31 days following relief of jaundice by internal biliary drainage. Serum bilirubin level was significantly elevated in the bile duct ligated animals at Day 21 (P , 0.001) and thereafter returned to preoperative levels following internal biliary drainage. Results demonstrate depressed responsiveness to PHA (P , 0.001) and allogeneic F344 antigen in vivo (P , 0.04) and in vitro (P , 0.02) in bile duct ligated animals as compared to sham, sham pair-fed, and normal control rats. ...
Under normal conditions, arachidonic acid is metabolized into eicosanoids (thromboxanes, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins) which are proinflammatory. Omega-3 fatty acids compete with arachidonic acid in the metabolic process and thus reduce the synthesis of prostaglandins. In acute illness, the synthesis of omega-3 fatty acids decreases. With the administration of omega-3 fatty acids, the synthesis of proinflammatory prostaglandins is thought to be reduced.. Little research has been done to clarify what specific effect the IEDs have on cellular immunity, and many of the results have been contradictory. The cells most frequently studied are CD4+, CD8+, NK, monocytes, CD19+, and the subgroups of all these cell lines. Some studies have found a significant increase in the cellular parameters after IED and some have found no significant changes. Some have shown a shift towards a Th1-dominated CD4+ population by reducing the number of Th2 cells when IEDs have been given. A meta-analysis (Zheng et al. ...
Objectives: The aim of the study is to create assays able to detect the beginning of islet cell specific cellular immune response, the destructive capacity of this response and its natural development as well as the possible effect of intranasal insulin treatment on the direction of this response.. Basis: The proposal is based on the ongoing Finnish Diabetes Prediction and Prevention project identifying a large number of study subjects who are in various stages of prediabetes and have in part been recruited to a secondary prevention trial testing the effect of intranasal insulin treatment.. Rationale: It is known that a long prediabetic period exists during which antibodies to several diabetes-associated autoantigens can be detected. Insulin is the only well characterised antigens which is beta-cell specific and autoantibodies to insulin are usually the first to appear. In addition, there are several other autoantigens, GAD65 and IA-2 being the best characterised. Autoimmunity as such does not ...

N2 - Tuberculosis (TB) host defense depends on cellular immunity, including macrophages and adaptively acquired CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. More recently, roles for new immune components, including neutrophils, innate T cells, and B cells, have been defined, and the understanding of the function of macrophages and adaptively acquired T cells has been advanced. Moreover, the understanding of TB immunology elucidates TB infection and disease as a spectrum. Finally, determinates of TB host defense, such as age and comorbidities, affect clinical expression of TB disease. Herein, the authors comprehensively review TB immunology with an emphasis on new advances..

Once in contact with the host immune system, the microorganism faces the hosts tightly integrated cellular and humoral immune responses. Cellular immunity, comprising T lymphocytes, macrophages, and natural killer cells, primarily recognizes and combats pathogens that proliferate intracellularly. Cellular immune mechanisms are important in immunity to all classes of infectious agents, including most viruses and many bacteria (e.g., Mycoplasma, Chlamydophila, Listeria, Salmonella, and Mycobacterium), parasites (e.g., Trypanosoma, Toxoplasma, and Leishmania), and fungi (e.g., Histoplasma, Cryptococcus, and Coccidioides). Usually, T lymphocytes are activated by macrophages and B lymphocytes, which present foreign antigens along with the hosts own major histocompatibility complex antigen to the T-cell receptor. Activated T cells may then act in several ways to fight infection. Cytotoxic T cells may directly attack and lyse host cells that express foreign antigens. Helper T cells stimulate the ...
The major focus of my lab is to investigate the mechanisms that control protective immunity to influenza and other respiratory virus infections. These pathogens are a major cause of human mortality every year. Cytotoxic T cells (CTL) play an important role in viral clearance and can provide short-term heterosubtypic immunity, indicating that they could be an effective target for vaccination. Unfortunately, cellular immunity to viral infections lasts only a few months even when large self-renewing populations of virus-specific memory CD8 T cells have been established. An important goal of my lab is to determine why protective cellular immunity declines so rapidly and why circulating memory T cells become ineffective at accelerating viral clearance during secondary challenge. Better understanding of the mechanisms that regulate T cell responses in vivo are likely to lead to more effective methods of vaccination against viruses and other pathogens that invade the respiratory tract. Transgenic mice, ...
The spontaneous rheumatoid disease in animals is a representative example of all the stages of rheumatism which occur in nature. It is caused exclusively by bacterial, mycoplasmal, or viral infection. The organs involved in rheumatic reactions are characterized by borders between tissue incapable of inflammation, without vessels and nourished by passive perfusion, and highly reactive, well vascularized connective tissue. By this combination microorganisms are deposited on the one hand, and then later the appearance of immune complexes is possible. These settlements are sustained by the initially occurring coagulation and permeability processes of the infection in the vascular syndrome. After the inundation of the noxa, the bradytrophic tissue proves to be an inflammatory niche and thus an ideal antigen reservoir which can sustain the rheumatic process, in particular the humoral and the cellular immune mechanism, for the rest of the organism life. The inflammatory and immune mechanisms, probably

The immune status of children with malignant disease in remission was assessed usingvarious immune function tests. Children with infections had significantlymore neutropenia, hypogammaglobulinaemia, and impaired cell-mediated immune responses than those without. These two groups combined had much more absolute lymphopenia and impairment of both cell-mediated immunity and antibody-producing capacity thancontrol children with non-malignant conditions. Regular immunological evaluation isrecommended for children with malignant disease when new intensive treatment schedules are under trial and for individual patients particularly prone to develop infections during treatment. ...

Swine leukocyte antigen (SLA) class I molecules play a crucial role in generating specific cellular immune responses against viruses and other intracellular pathogens. They mainly bind and present antigens of intracellular origin to circulating MHC I-restricted cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs). Binding of an appropriate epitope to an SLA class I molecule is the single most selective event in antigen presentation and the first step in the killing of infected cells by CD8+ CTLs. Moreover, the antigen epitopes are strictly restricted to specific SLA molecules. In this study, we constructed SLA class I complexes in vitro comprising viral epitope peptides, the extracellular region of the SLA-1 molecules, and β2-microglobulin (β2m) using splicing overlap extension polymerase chain reaction (SOE-PCR). The protein complexes were induced and expressed in an Escherichia coli prokaryotic expression system and subsequently purified and refolded. Specific binding of seven SLA-1 proteins to one classical swine fever
Background: Activation of the nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) system is a major event in acute and chronic inflammatory processes. NF-κB cascades are comprised of IκB kinases, IκBs and NF-κB dimers. Little is known of the individual roles of these proteins in organ specific inflammation. The aim of the present study was to analyse the consequences of ectopic IκB kinase-2 (IKK2) activation in the pancreas of mice.. Methods: Transgenic mice were generated using an inducible genetic system (tet system) to conditionally overexpress a gain of function mutant of IKK2 (tetO-IKK2-EE) in the pancreas. To achieve transgene expression in the pancreas, these animals were crossed with CMV-rtTA mice that are known to express the rtTA protein in the pancreas.. Results: In these double transgenic animals, doxycycline treatment induced expression of IKK2-EE (IKK2CA) in pancreatic acinar cells resulting in moderate activation of the IκB kinase complex, as measured by the immune complex kinase assay, and up to ...

MicroRNA (miRNA) molecules are potent mediators of post-transcriptional gene silencing that are emerging to be critical in the regulation of innate and adaptive immunity. Here we report that miR-155--an oncogenic miRNA with important function in the mammalian immune system--is induced in dendritic cells (DCs) upon maturation and potentially attenuates their ability to activate T cells. Biolistic epidermal transfection with DNA encoding miR-155 suppressed the induction of antigen-specific T cell-mediated immunity, whereas reduction of endogenous miR-155 by a partially complementary antisense sequence reversed this effect. Because DCs represent a significant component of epidermal tissue and are among the most potent of antigen-presenting cells, the inhibitory actions of miR-155 could be mediated through this subset of cells. These results suggest that miR-155 may repress the expression of key molecules involved in lymph node migration, antigen presentation, or T cell activation in DCs, and thus forms

Delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) appears in mice immunized with less than an optimal immunogenic dose of sheep red blood cells (SRBC), but is blocked progressively as antibody production increases in response to larger doses of SRBC. Treatment with cyclophosphamide (CY) was shown to release T cells from this inhibitory influence of the humoral response, and cause enhancement of DTH. The magnitude of this enhancing effect on T-cell activity was markedly dependent on the time of treatment relative to the time of immunization, and on the time chosen for measuring DTH. The reasons for these pronounced effects of timing are threefold: (a) CY given before antigenic stimulation has a long-lasting effect on antibody formation, but no apparent effect on the precursors of activated T cells. (b) After antigenic stimulation, T cells also become susceptible to CY. (c) The production of a nonspecific participant (monocyte) in the DTH reaction is also suppressed by CY, though the supply of circulating ...
cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) usually predicts the presence of cancer. When the antigens are intracellular, most syndromes are associated with extensive infiltrates of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, microglial activation, gliosis, and variable neuronal loss. The infiltrating T cells are often in close contact with neurons undergoing degeneration, suggesting a primary pathogenic role. T cell-mediated cytotoxicity may contribute directly to cell death in these PNDs. Thus both humoral and cellular immune mechanisms participate in the pathogenesis of many PNDs. This complex immunopathogenesis may underlie the resistance of many of these conditions to therapy. ...
We have recently described a procedure to produce a monomeric, stable, soluble and functional state of the full-length CyaA toxin. We are now investigating the physico-chemical properties of CyaA in solution and upon its insertion into membranes.. The characterization of CyaA in solution should be instrumental for the development of a new generation of vacines against whooping cough. Biophysical approaches will be coined to follow the translocation process both in vitro on lipid membranes and in vivo on eukaryotic cells. These studies should provide a better understanding of the mechanisms of toxin translocation across biological membranes, and in addition, will allow to further develop CyaA-based vaccines (two of them are currently in phase I/II clinical trials). Indeed, Daniel Ladant, in collaboration with C. Leclercs team at Institut Pasteur, previously showed that CyaA is a potent vehicle able to deliver vaccine antigens into dendritic cells thus triggering specific cell-mediated immune ...
A two-stage modification of the leucocyte adherence inhibition (LAI) test is described, which quantitates cell-mediated immunity (CMI) in vitro with 0.5-ml samples of blood from mice exposed to methylcholanthrene-induced tumors. The total blood cells are washed and incubated for 30 min with tumor antigen, then centrifuged, and the supernatant assayed in the LAI test with normal peritoneal cells. The first stage of the reaction depends on the rapid formation of a soluble mediator which appears to be a lymphokine. By this method, the daily changes in specific CMI were followed in individual mice after syngeneic tumor transplantation ...
We thoroughly check each answer to a question to provide you with the most correct answers. Found a mistake? Let us know about it through the REPORT button at the bottom of the page.. Unlike NK cells of the innate immune system, B cells (B lymphocytes) are a type of white blood cell that gives rise to antibodies, whereas T cells (T lymphocytes) are a type of white blood cell that plays an important role in the immune response. T cells are a key component in the cell-mediated response-the specific immune response that utilizes T cells to neutralize cells that have been infected with viruses and certain bacteria.. There are three types of T cells: cytotoxic, helper, and suppressor T cells. Cytotoxic T cells destroy virus-infected cells in the cell-mediated immune response, and helper T cells play a part in activating both the antibody and the cell-mediated immune responses. Suppressor T cells deactivate T cells and B cells when needed, and thus prevent the immune response from becoming too ...
