26615570 Observed highly significant reductions in the concentration of circulating interleukin (IL)-16, IL-7, and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor A (VEGF-A) in encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome patients.
26479922 IL7 was expressed primarily in the infundibulum and suprabulb of the hair follicle. IL7 expression was increased in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
26324773 this study identified that IL-7, as well as the Akt/ mTOR signaling pathway, effectively modulates human Double-Negative T Cell- mediated suppression of allogeneic T cell responses.
26272555 provides negative feedback on its own signaling in T cells via endocytosis and degradation of its receptor, CD127
26177551 IL-7 and SCF are elevated for a prolonged period after double umbilical cord blood transplantation and persistently high levels of these cytokines may correlate with worse clinical outcomes.
26113403 The observations suggest that IL-7 may play a role in the pathogenesis of Graves' disease and may be associated with its clinical activity.
26085358 Common gamma-chain cytokines IL-2, IL-7, and IL-15 prevent differentiation of naive T cells in vitro and limit activation of primed T cells in the absence of antigenic stimulus, which can contribute to the formation of cytokine imbalance.
25933188 IL-7/IL-17 axis mediates chronic pelvic pain in experimental autoimmune prostatitis and in patients.
25870237 These observations provide evidence of a novel mechanism that enables cells to optimally use IL-7.
25784743 Interferon-alpha inhibits CD4 T cell responses to interleukin-7 and interleukin-2 and selectively interferes with Akt signaling.
