    This article reviews recent studies dealing with the relationship between the cytoprotective action of PGE[sub 2] and the EP receptor subtypes in the gastric mucosa. Gastric cytoprotection afforded by PGE[sub 2] was mimicked by EP1 agonists and attenuated by the EP1 antagonist. Likewise, the...

    Human tumors can use many different mechanisms to induce dysfunction in the host immune system. Accumulations of inducible regulatory T cells (iTreg, Tr1) are commonly seen in the tumor microenvironment. These Treg express CD39 and up-regulate CD73 ectonucleotidases, hydrolyze exogenous...
