Example sentences for: immunodeficient

How can you use “immunodeficient” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • AICD = activation-induced cell death; CTLA = cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen; ELISA = enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; FITC = fluorescein isothiocyanate; IL = interleukin; PE = R-phycoerythrin; PG = proteoglycan; PGIA, proteoglycan-induced arthritis; SCID = severe combined immunodeficient; TCR = T-cell receptor; TGF = transforming growth factor; WT = wild-type.

  • First, CD4 +T cells selectively proliferate in response to proteoglycan antigens [ 14 ] . Second, prevention of arthritis can be achieved by in vivo treatment with anti-CD4 monoclonal antibodies [ 15 ] . Third, arthritis can be transferred to naïve BALB/c or severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice using T and B cells from arthritic animals [ 16 17 18 ] . Fourth, a proteoglycan-specific T-cell hybridoma (T-helper-1 type) can induce arthritis in BALB/c mice [ 19 ] . Finally, CD4 +T cells from arthritic animals are resistant to activation-induced cell death [ 20 ] . These data suggest a breakdown of peripheral tolerance and accumulation of autoreactive T cells in the periphery.

  • The most striking feature of the MCMV induced vascular disease was the formation of neointima in aortas of MCMV infected immunodeficient mice after irradiation (Table 2), (Fig 2).

  • We produced tumors in immunodeficient SCID C.B-17 mice by inoculating 5 × 10 6cells (either A549 or U118) subcutaneously per mouse in the intrascapular region.

  • Due to their high immunogenicity and their extra-chromosomal replication, the current adenoviral vectors may not be appropriate for long-term transduction in-vivo but improvement in vector design and adoptive transfer into immunodeficient hosts may facilitate experiments in the future.
