Streptococcus pneumoniae is one of the most important aetiological agents of bacterial pneumonia and meningitis in the world. This bacterium can cause severe inflammation of lung tissue and disseminate to the central nervous system. Although B cell activation and antibody secretion is considered one of the most important events in the prevention or clearance of bacterial infection by the host, dendritic cells (DCs) and T cells play a fundamental role in the generation of the protective immunity… CONTINUE READING
