OX-22high CD4+ T cells induce wasting disease with multiple organ pathology: prevention by the OX-22low subset.
Congenitally athymic rats injected with CD45RBhigh CD4+ T cells from congenic euthymic donors developed a severe wasting disease with inflammatory infiltrates in liver, lung, stomach, thyroid, and pancreas. In contrast, recipients of CD45RBlow CD4+ T cells remained well and continued to gain weight. Animals given unfractionated CD4+ T cells, i.e., a mixture of approximately two-thirds CD45RBhigh and one-third CD45RBlow, were protected from the wasting disease, and the incidence of organ-speci...Expand abstract
