Virus-specific CD8+ T lymphocytes within the normal human liver.
The frequency and phenotype of human antiviral memory CD8(+) T cells in blood are well studied, yet little is known about their distribution within tissues. Analysis of antiviral CD8(+) T cell populations derived from a unique set of normal liver and blood samples identified a consistent population of virus-specific cells within the liver. In comparison to the circulating T cells, the liver-derived T cells were present at frequencies which were variably enriched compared to that in the blood,...Expand abstract
