‘Mechanisms underlying therapeutic tolerance’

 

Abstract

 

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
