Identification of autoantigens that elicit pathogenic immune responses in cardiovascular diseases

Pathogenic immune responses participate in the pathogenesis of many cardiovascular diseases. However, the autoantigens and foreign antigens that elicit the pathogenic immune responses have been poorly identified. Currently, the regulatory mechanisms on immune responses associated with diseases got some attentions. But, without detailed characterizations of this wide spectrum of autoantigens and foreign antigens in patients ...more »
