Antigen Express technology focuses on modulating immune responses mediated by T helper (Th) cells, a class of lymphocytes that plays a multifaceted role in the immune system, both enhancing and suppressing immune responses. The cells are essential both for obtaining a robust and long lasting response against infectious agents or cancer cells and for down regulating immune responses when the immune system becomes inappropriately stimulated, e.g. in autoimmune disease and allergy.
