Effect of LipESP on human DCs maturation.

Immature DCs were stimulated with LipESP for 48h and analysis of CD40, HLA-DR, CD86 and CD80 expression was performed by cytometry. Non-stimulated or LPS-stimulated DCs were considered as control cultures. Results are expressed as mean ± standard deviation of percentages of positive cells (n = 8). *: The results are statistically significant (p<0.05), when compared to control cells.
