Rapid effector function of circulating NC16A-specific T cells in individuals with mucous membrane pemphigoid.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) is a chronic blistering skin disease frequently associated with circulating autoantibodies directed to a number of antigens including the NC16A region of BP180. NC16A domain-specific T cells have been identified in the blood of individuals with bullous pemphigoid (BP), pemphigoid gestationis and linear IgA disease, but there are no data investigating the potential role for such T cells in the pathogenesis of MMP. OBJECTIVES: To test the hypothesis ...
