  • Whether T cells join the immune system9s fight against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has been unclear. Two new studies have identified T cells that react to the virus in patients who had COVID-19 or were recovering from it. Both studies detected helper T cells, which orchestrate antiviral responses of other immune cells, and one of the studies also found killer T cells that eliminate virally infected cells. Both studies also discovered helper T cells that target the virus in blood… CONTINUE READING
