Dendritic Cells in Fundamental and Clinical Immunology: Volume 1

by Eduard W. A. Kamperdijk

Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of the Second International Symposium on [title], held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, June 1992. First, recent developments in molecular biology of antigen presentation and cell biological aspects of signal transduction are discussed, in relation to the potential of DC to stimulate lymphocytes and to trigger their in vitro differentiation. Next, the immunological role of DC in vivo, as studied in animal experiments, is dealt with, highlighting origin and kinetics of DC as well as their potential, upon in vitro exposure to antigen, to induce vigorous immune responses in vivo. Finally, the role of DC in clinical immunology is illustrated in contributions dealing with isolation and functional characterization of DC and other accessory cells from normal and pathologic human tissues.
