Recent studies have defined an immunological network by which the acute cytotoxic T-lymphocyte response to viral infection modulates or is modulated by the antigen load and by crossreactive memory T cells. Down regulation of the acute CTL response can be associated with either antigen-dependent or antigen-independent apoptosis, and the host enters a state of immune deficiency as these T cells become sensitized to apoptotic mechanisms.
