IL-15 Participates in the Respiratory Innate Immune Response to Influenza Virus Infection

Abstract

Following influenza infection, natural killer (NK) cells function as interim effectors by suppressing viral replication until CD8 T cells are activated, proliferate, and are mobilized within the respiratory tract.
