"The Jounce poster presentations show that patients in the ICONIC trial with emergence of ICOS hi CD4 T cells
have improved progression free survival and overall survival compared to patients with ICOS lo CD4 T cells
However, very few studies were focused on exhausted CD4 T cells
in BC patients.

CD4 T cells
: balancing the coming and going of autoimmune-mediated inflammation in the CNS.
The relative expression level in the thymus was significantly higher than that in lymph node and spleen (p<0.05), which might be due to many of the immature CD4 T cells
in the thymus not migrating into peripheral lymphoid tissues at the piglet stage.
This is a pathology defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as patients with numbers of circulating CD4 T lymphocytes < 300 cells/[mm.sup.3] or < 20% of total T cells on a minimum of two separate measurements at least 6 weeks apart, with no laboratory evidence of infection with human HIV-1 or HIV-2 and with the absence of any defined immunodeficiency or therapy associated with depressed levels of CD4 T cells
HOMEOSTASIS AND THE AGE-ASSOCIATED DEFECT OF CD4 T CELLS
Ablation of thymic export causes accelerated decay of naive CD4 T cells
in the periphery because of activation by environmental antigen.
Previous study has shown that a specific type of immune cells, called CD4 T cells
, which are critical to vaccine response, become less effective with age.
Splenic CD4 T cells
were isolated from C57B1/6J mice 24hr post in vivo activation with anti-CD3.
The subjects taking the combination tonic also showed increased CD69 activation, expressed primarily on CD8 T cells, and to a lesser extent on CD4 T cells
and NK cells.
