The requirements for the generation of fully competent long-lived memory CD8 T cells and in particular the role and the mechanisms of help from CD4 T cells remain ill-defined. Memory CD8 T cells generated in the absence of CD4 T cell help often have an impaired recall proliferation and are thus unable to confer protection against certain pathogens. However, the timing and the mechanisms involved in the delivery of help are still unclear and differ between various experimental systems. In this...Expand abstract
