Abstract

An unconventional population of CD4+SLAMF7+cytotoxic TEMcells (CD4+CTLs) has been linked causally to IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD). Glucocorticoids represent the first line therapeutic approach in patients with IgG4-RD but their mechanism of action in this specific condition remains unknown. Here we describe the impact of glucocorticoids on CD4+CTLs in IgG4-RD.
