Semi-allogeneic dendritic cells can induce antigen-specific T-cell activation, which is not enhanced by concurrent alloreactivity.
BACKGROUND: Alloreactive T-cell responses are known to result in the production of large amounts of proinflammatory cytokines capable of activating and maturing dendritic cells (DC). However, it is unclear whether these allogeneic responses could also act as an adjuvant for concurrent antigen-specific responses. OBJECTIVE: To examine effects of simultaneous alloreactive and antigen-specific T-cell responses induced by semi-allogeneic DC. METHODS: Semi-allogeneic DC were generated from the F(...Expand abstract
