T-cell-targeted signaling inhibitors.


PMID 18300054

Abstract

Recent advances in our understanding of the mechanisms of T-cell activation, migration to inflammatory sites, and pathologic disease processes triggered the development of a wide variety of T-cell-targeted signaling inhibitors, which have different targets and modes of action. Depending on the distribution and the role of targets in disease processes, T-cell inhibitors exhibit different levels of efficacy and potential side effects. This review outlines target molecules to which T-cell inhibitors have been developed, their efficacy, and potential safety concerns of T-cell inhibitors.
