Moreover, controlling immune response is of utmost importance in setting of organ transplantation. Dendritic cells are the key players in regulating protective as well as autoimmune responses. Therefore dendritic cells can be utilized for bot initiation of protective immune responses as well as for controlling undesirable self-reactive/autoimmune responses. In this book, several novel strategies based on dendritic cells are described, which can be used to suppress unwanted immune responses.
