    ..Downregulation of PD-1 on HTLV-1-specific CTLs and loss of PD-L1 expression in HAM/TSP and CAIDs, along with impaired function of HTLV-1-specific CTLs in HAM/TSP, may underlie the apparently dysfunctional immune response against HTLV-1...

    Leuk Lymphoma 54:2243-50. 2013
    ..We conclude that CD127 down-regulation may be associated with disease status in HTLV-1 infection, and propose that exogenous IL-7 may be useful immunotherapy or cytokine adjuvant for an anti-ATL therapeutic vaccine...

    ..In the light of these findings, we thus propose an inhibitory role for 2B4/CD48 interaction on CD8+T cell function. ..
