Vaccine-assisting molecules help the lung memorize immune responses

Traditional vaccines are generally better at eliciting antibody responses rather than building a memory of cellular immunity involving dedicated T cell subsets. Vaccines directed towards infections such as HIV or cancers would be vastly improved if they could elicit these responses more efficiently. New research uncovers a mechanism to establish such a memory in the lung which is conserved in mice, non-human primates and humans.… Read More Vaccine-assisting molecules help the lung memorize immune responses
