Service Description

CD57 is a surface marker or protein that is expressed on a subset of lymphocytes, specifically natural killer (NK) cells and a subset of T cells known as CD8+ T cells. CD57+ lymphocytes are generally considered to be more mature and functionally specialized than their CD57- counterparts. NK cells are an important component of the innate immune system, and they play a key role in recognizing and killing infected or abnormal cells, such as cancer cells. CD8+ T cells, as mentioned earlier, are also involved in killing infected or abnormal cells. Measuring CD57+ lymphocytes can be useful in diagnosing and monitoring a variety of immune-related conditions, such as chronic viral infections, autoimmune diseases, and certain types of cancer. Low levels of CD57+ NK cells have been associated with chronic infections and may be a marker of immune dysfunction, while high levels of CD57+ T cells have been associated with a more effective immune response against certain infections and cancers.
