Abstract

T regulatory cells - in addition to clonal deletion and anergy - are essential for the downregulation of T cell responses to both foreign and self antigens, and for the prevention of autoimmunity. Recent progress has been made in characterising the different subsets of T regulatory cells, the factors that drive their differentiation, and their mode of action. The resolution of these mechanisms will make it possible to use T regulatory cells therapeutically in human autoimmune diseases.
