A nanomedicine approach to treat autoimmune disease leverages a natural differentiation pathway of T regulatory-1 (TR1) cells.

  • T-follicular helper (TFH) cells can serve as in vivo precursors of TR1 cells in humans and in mice
  • Complete differentiation of TR1 effector function requires the transcription factor Blimp-1 (Prdm1)
  • Navacims, a pMHC-II nanomedicine platform induce TFH expansion and differentiation to immunomodulatory TR1 cells
