The article discusses the role of the T regulatory cell suppression of colitis. The T cells prevents and treats the established colitis in animal models of IBD which numerically deficient in patients with active IBD. The T cells are stable with the low levels of human T cells in peripheral with blood lymphocytes and even lower in the intestine.

    T cell receptor engagement with CD28 costimulation is generally required for naive T cell activation, whereas reactivation of memory cells is less dependent on CD28 costimulation. We studied this process in chronic beryllium disease, in which the frequency of antigen-specific CD4+ T cells in the...
