  • Autoimmune Mechanisms in Human Myocarditis Jacksonville, Fla.

    The purpose of this research is to study immune cells called T cells and monocytes (types of blood cells that fight infection and can also cause autoimmune disease) that may damage heart tissue during myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle). Cytokines (proteins that send signals between cells) found in the blood will be studied for their effects on blood immune cells to better understand how they can lead to heart failure during and after myocarditis.
