Natural Killer Cell Cytolytic Function in Korean Patients with Adult-onset Still's Disease
The Journal of Rheumatology, 08/03/2012
Ha Park J et al. – Low natural killer (NK) cell proportion, defective cytotoxic function, and elevated interleukin–18 levels may be significant features of adult–onset Still’s disease (AOSD). After resolution of the acute phase, low NK cell proportion was recovered and NK cell cytolytic function was restored along with clinical improvement. These findings possibly contribute to immunologic abnormalities in AOSD.
