As I originally wrote in my 1993 book, "Scientists recently discovered a process in the body's immune system called "anergy."
In utero bone marrow transplantation induces tolerance by a combination of clonal deletion and anergy.
Ongoing studies involve cell-cycle regulation, novel transcription factors and regulation of key genes involved in T cell anergy and tolerance, including Foxp3 and its various homologs; further details are available.
Scientists recently discovered a process in the body's immune system called "anergy."
These 4D event horizon surfaces form as a result of the fact that the very existence of energy densities prohibits their existence - or that of space/time at a certain place in scale, and that these scale/anergy density relationships vary with great complexity, depending on the mass of the energy denisties and how, and from what place within the manifold they are observed.
We must shed our dystopic entropic psychology of cataleptic catatonia with its apathetic anergy of cultural polymorphism.
B7-H1 expression was detected in the majority of human cancers and leads to anergy and apoptosis of activated T cells, which might enable tumors to evade the immune response.
To determine the mechanism for this anergy, we tested whether these cells were mycoplasma contaminated by analyzing the cells for mycoplasma DNA by PCR.
To determine if the mycoplasma contamination was responsible for the anergy, we treated mycoplasma negative THP-1 cells (from ATCC, lot 385653, or plasmocin-treated from our stock) and mycoplasma positive THP-1 cells with LPS or
We and others (180-182) have demonstrated that lymphocytes derived from both synovial tissue and synovial fluid cells express low levels of cytokines and show signs of anergy.
