Specific human cytotoxic T cells recognize B-cell lines persistently infected with respiratory syncytial virus.

Abstract:

The T-lymphocyte response to respiratory syncytial (RS) virus has been invoked to explain the bronchiolitis and pneumonia caused by RS virus in human infants. However, T cells also appear to play a role in protection against RS virus infection. Although RS virus-specific human lymphocytes have been demonstrated, neither the phenotype nor the function of the lymphocytes was characterized. We describe here the induction of anti-RS virus cytotoxic T lymphocytes, in both bulk culture and restimul...
