CD4(+)CD25(+) regulatory T (Treg) cells and Th17 cells play important roles in peripheral immunity. Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) is an instrumental factor in atherogenesis. However, the changes of Th17/Treg cells in patients with acute cerebral Infarction (ACI) and impact on Th17/Treg by ox-LDL are not clear. Here, we examined the balance of Th17/Treg in ACI patients and the effect of ox-LDL on this balance.
