Circulating CD40+ and CD86+ B Cell Subsets Demonstrate Opposing Associations With Risk of Stroke.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Accumulating evidence shows that immune cells play an important role in atherosclerosis. Most attention has focused on the role of different T cell subsets, whereas the possible involvement of B cells has been less studied. In this study, we assessed the association of 2 different B cell subsets, CD19(+)CD40(+) and CD19(+)CD86(+) B cells, with risk for development of acute cardiovascular events.
