Potent Induction of IFN-γ Production from Cord Blood NK Cells by the Stimulation with Single-Stranded RNA

Natural killer (NK) cells play important roles in the innate immunity against viral infections. Although newborn infants are more susceptible to severe and recurrent viral infections than adults, the precise role of NK cells in the innate immunity against viral infections during neonatal period is not known. To clarify the functional characteristics of cord… CONTINUE READING
