Pat Hume publishes "Strategies to Reduce Dendritic Cell Activation through Functional Biomaterial Design" in Biomaterials

August 20, 2012

Pat Hume showed that immunosuppressive factors maintain their activity when tethered to a hydrogel and reduce markers of dendritic cell activation. The figure shows reduced levels of IL-12 expression in dendritic cells seeded upon hydrogels functionalized with immunosuppressive proteins TGF-B1 and IL-10.
