‘Mechanisms underlying therapeutic tolerance’
A major goal in immunosuppressive therapy is to provide short-term therapy to achieve long-term benefit.
This has been possible in mouse models using monoclonal antibody intervention.
Here I will summarise what we know about the mechanisms underlying such immune reprogramming with some emphasis on the roles of TGFbeta in the process.
Chair: Professor Andrew Mellor
