He said in kids, "the vaccine is really effective," but in some adults, memory T-cells, which recognize and attack germs, do not fight the virus as effectively as they once did.
The team also found that monkeys also have plenty of memory T-cells in their body fat and that these cells worked better than those from other organs.
Rv3841-Stimulated DCs Induce Development of Effector/ Memory T-Cells. To validate the properties of Rv3841 as a T-cell antigen, we determined whether Rv3841-stimulated DCs can induce expansion of the effector/memory [CD4.sup.+] T-cell populations in Mtb-infected mice.
The number of CD8[sup]+ effector memory T-cells (Tem), expression of interferon (IFN)-a, mTOR, and ribosomal protein S6 kinase (S6K), and the levels of IL-6, IL-10, galactomannan (GM), and soluble TREM-1 (sTREM-1) were measured.
The IL-15/IL-15R[alpha] on cell surfaces enables sustained IL-15 activity and contributes to the long survival of CD8 memory T-cells [31].
We must create more efficient effector memory T-cells (T-Em) with more cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) activity.
* The pathophysiology of the disease involves resident intra-epidermal CD8+ T-cells resembling effector memory T-cells. These T-cells are increased in number at the dermoepidermal junction of normal appearing skin; their aberrant activation leads to an inflammatory response, stimulating tissue destruction and formation of the classic fixed-drug lesion.

In the first stage of the project, investigators tested the effects of loading a patient's viral ribonucleic acid (RNA) into to see if they would induce infection-fighting memory T-cells.
