A large fraction of the skin-homing T-cell population resides in the skin even under resting, non-inflammatory conditions. Here, we used a crawl-out culture method to retrieve T cells from human skin and characterized them using flow cytometric analysis. On average, 48000 viable, non-proliferating cells were retrieved per biopsy. We found ...

Non-parasitic splenic cysts are relatively rare, and the optimal surgical treatment for them remains controversial. Laparoscopic unroofing is a relatively safe and easy technique, but a significant number of recurrences has been reported. Thus, complete cystectomy with partial splenectomy is recommended by several surgeons. However, patients sometimes suffer from intraoperative ...

Dermal dendritic cells (DCs) play a central role in the immunopathology of psoriasis. We previously identified slanDCs as pro-inflammatory TNF-α, IL-23- and IL-12-producing DCs in human blood and as prominent inflammatory dermal TNF-α secreting and CD11c-positive DC subset in psoriasis. Here, we ask for the effects of TNF-α-inhibition on inflammatory slanDCs ...
