Mini-symposia Session II
Wednesday, October 15, 2003
Natcher Conference Center
Negative Regulation of Immune Responses by Regulatory Cells and Cytokines 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Co-chaired by:
Brian L. Kelsall, M.D.
Senior Investigator, Mucosal Immunity Section, Laboratory of Clinical Investigation, NIAID, Chair, CIG Steering Committee

Sponsored by the NIH Cytokine Interest Group
Balcony B, Natcher Conference Center
This mini-symposium will address the role of regulatory T cells and suppressive
cytokines in the control of immune responses and the prevention of untoward
inflammation and tissue injury. The speakers will discuss three important areas in
which regulatory T cells and inhibitory cytokines have been shown to play an
important role: the control of self-reactivity and prevention of autoimmunity, the
regulation of immunity to infectious pathogens, and the inhibition of immune
surveillance against tumors.
