However, the LPS-stimulated blood model primarily allows the assessment of monocyte responses. Here, a whole blood model was established which allows assessment of lymphocyte responses. Four different superantigens, namely staphylococcal enterotoxin A and B (SEA, SEB), toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 (TSST-1) or streptococcal exotoxin A (SPEA) were tested with respect to the induction of lymphokine release. All superantigens were capable of inducing significant amounts of the lymphokines interferon-γ (IFNγ), interleukin 2 (IL-2), IL-4, IL-5, IL-13 and tumor necrosis factor β (TNFβ) after 72 h of incubation. Concentration-dependencies and kinetics were determined. Blood from 160 healthy donors was used to assess the variability of SEB-inducible lymphokine release. Interindividual differences were more pronounced compared to LPS-inducible monokine release. However, the individual response was maintained when blood from six donors was tested once a week for 8 weeks, suggesting that the individual response represents a donor characteristic. The model appears to be suitable for the evaluation of immunomodulatory agents in vitro as well as ex vivo.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Hartung, Thomas</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/legalcode"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:38:17Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2003</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Hermann, Corinna</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Hermann, Corinna</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dc:creator>Graf, Kathrin</dc:creator> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/7887/1/2003HermannJIM_bearb.pdf"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/7887/1/2003HermannJIM_bearb.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Graf, Kathrin</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
