We believe the substantial boost in natural killer cell
activity will help eliminate virus-infected cells, premalignant cells, and senile cells that linger in the body and emit constant streams of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
Evidence that continued remission in patients treated for acute leukaemia is dependent upon autologous natural killer cells
A snapshot of the global therapeutic scenario for Natural Killer Cell
Thymic lymphoblastic lymphoma of committed natural killer cell
precursor origin: a case report.
Natural Killer Cells
details NK cell biology, the role of NK cells in regulating immunity through interactions with other cells and tissues, the participation of NK cells in disease and special topics in NK biology.
Large Multivalent Immunogens are created by attaching isolated tumor antigens in high concentrations onto cell-size microspheres which are then injected into the cancer-bearing host in order to stimulate tumor-specific killer cells
, known as cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL).
These assassins, including natural killer cells
, become part of the cell-mediated immune response.
Chronic resistance exercise training improves natural killer cell
activity in older women.
The paper suggests that antidepressant treatment may have positive effects on natural killer cell
activity in cells isolated from individuals infected with HIV with and without depression.
Natural killer cell
activity in families of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus: demonstration of a killing defect in patients.
Depressed controls were found to have significantly fewer circulating natural killer cells
and higher levels of inflammatory mediators such as interleukin-6, interleukin-1[beta], and C-reactive protein than nondepressed patients at both 2 weeks and 6 months after discharge.
Also, no significant differences were seen between groups in functional immune measures, including natural killer cell
cytotoxicity and T-cell proliferation.
