http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/imr.12174/full

author's conclusion

The essential role of Treg-specific epigenome in Treg cell function, hence immunological self-tolerance and homeostasis, suggests that genetic mutations or polymorphisms of the Treg-specific hypomethylation regions may contribute to the susceptibility to autoimmune and other immunological diseases through affecting Treg cell function and development. Further study of the molecular basis of the Treg-specific epigenome change will enable better understanding of immunological diseases and devising better therapeutic and preventive measures.

Deborah Verran's curator insight, Today, 4:18 AM

For viruses to be able to replicate within us, certain processes are required. Interrupting these processes may inhibit viral replication.

 

Patients on long term immunosuppressive medications can also be susceptible to viral infection.
