1. Fatal recall responses mediated by CD8 T cells during intracellular bacterial challenge infection.
Match Strength: 5.840
The roles(s) of CD8 T cells during infections by intracellular bacteria that reside in host cell endocytic compartments are not well understood. Our previous studies in a mouse model of human monocytotropic ehrlichiosis indicated that CD8 T cells are not essential for immunity. However, we have observed an unexpected role for these cells during challenge infection. Although immunocompetent mice cleared a primary low-dose (nonfatal) Ixodes ovatus ehrlichia infection, a secondary low-dose challenge infection resulted in fatal disease and loss of control of infection. The outcome was CD8 ... Read More »
