Piperlongumine Acts as an Immunosuppressant by Exerting Prooxidative Effects in Human T Cells Resulting in Diminished TH17 but Enhanced TregDifferentiation

Introduction: Piperlongumine (PL), a natural small molecule derived from the'Piper longum' Linn plant, has received growing interest as a prooxidative drug with promising anticancer properties. Yet, the influence of PL on primary human T cells remained elusive. Knowledge of this is of crucial importance, however, since T cells in particular play a critical role in tumor control.  Therefore, we investigated the effects of PL on the survival and function of primary human peripheral blood T cells (PBTs).
