AD/PD 2022 | How does the lymphatic system modulate immunity?

Laura Santambrogio, MD, PhD, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, NY, describes how the lymphatic system modulates immunity. One facet of this is that lymphatic endothelial cells are antigen-presenting cells and so can present peptides to immune cells. Lymphatic vessels are also a conduit for immune cells. Therefore T-cells and migratory dendritic cells move through the lymphatic system. This interview took place at the AD/PD™ 2022 International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases hosted in Barcelona, Spain.
