    ..Our data indicate that Treg cells beneficially influence wound healing after MI by modulating monocyte/macrophage differentiation. Moreover, therapeutic activation of Treg cells constitutes a novel approach to improve healing post-MI. ..

    ..The present study provides the first evidence that CD4(+) T cells become activated after MI, presumably driven by recognition of cardiac autoantigens, and facilitate wound healing of the myocardium. ..

    ..Our data indicate that IL-13 regulates leukocyte recruitment and induces M2-like monocyte/macrophage differentiation, which modifies wound healing within the infarct zone. ..

    ..We tested the hypothesis that pharmacological S1P receptor agonists improve recovery of function when applied with reperfusion...
