T-cell co-inhibitory receptors
The Stem Cell Therapy Unit is investigating the role of Tregs and T-cell co-inhibitory receptors (e.g. PD-1, CTLA-4) in regulating anti-bacterial responses of T-cells and monocytes from patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease COPD.
The goal of this project is to compare the expression of inhibitory receptors between acute exacerbations in people with stable COPD and a healthy control group.
