Towards improved immunotherapy. Inducing immune suppression could dampen an abnormal immune response in autoimmune diseases or could reduce a normal immune response to prevent rejection of transplanted organs or cells. Regulatory T cells are an important part of the immune system and can play a suppressive role, but naturally occur in low numbers. EurekAlert! 12/01/09. (Also see: Causes of Scleroderma: T cells)
