ImmuKnow is the in vitro diagnostic utilized to detect cell-mediated
immunity (CMI) in an immunosuppressed population, and is increasingly being adopted at organ transplant centers throughout the United States and abroad.
There is no direct published evidence for effects of drought on cell-mediated
response, but numerous studies document the cell-mediated
immune function is strongly correlated with nestling body mass (Saino et al.
Mantoux testing elicits a delayed hypersensitivity reaction to a previously sensitized antigen (a T-lymphocyte function), and it is generally accepted as a valid in vivo indicator of a patient's level of cell-mediated
Emphasis on cell-mediated
immunity versus humoral immunity changes according to the type of T-helper lymphocytes responding to an infectious threat.
The value of the ImmuKnow assay as a method to monitor cell-mediated
immunity and evaluate the need to modify the level of immunosuppression of individual patients will be addressed in the second part of this three-part trial, as specified above.
We next asked if cutaneous application of beryllium would initiate a beryllium-specific, cell-mediated
immune response in mice.
The pathophysiology of cocaine-induced midline destructive lesions is multifactorial and includes local ischemia secondary to vasoconstriction, chemical irritation from adulterants put in "cut" cocaine, and infection secondary to trauma, impaired mucociliary transport, and decreased humoral and cell-mediated
Mucosal infection by intracellular pathogens results in the induction of cell-mediated
immunity, as manifested by CD4-positive ([CD4.
But killer T cells can attack only those cells that the virus has already infected--a response known as cell-mediated
Seven Korean medical centers to collaborate on studies of immunosuppression in kidney transplant patients and role of cell-mediated
Gaithersburg, MD) has patented a cell-mediated
gene therapy treatment for orthopedic disease using a member belonging to the transforming growth factory-.
Immune parameters included secretory IgA (sIgA) in saliva, cell-mediated
immunity (CMI), determined using the CMI multitest where test antigens are applied to the skin, and antibody responses to both rabies and pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccines.
