Neonatal Tolerance Revisited: Turning on Newborn T Cells with Dendritic Cells

Ridge, J. P.; Fuchs, E. J.; Matzinger, P.

Reexamination of the classic neonatal tolerance experiments of Billingham, Brent, and Medawar showed that tolerance is not an intrinsic property of the newborn immune system, but that the nature of the antigen-presenting cell determines whether the outcome is neonatal tolerance or immunization.
