Scientists find a key to immune system's ability to remember

... pathogens like measles virus and HIV, agents that hide inside cells. Lck is important in helping "naive" T cells -- those cells that have never been exposed to a particular pathogen -- capture the receptor template of the invading agent and store it for future reference.

Tumor wizardry wards off attacks from the immune system

...ine in St. Louis have found that pancreatic tumors hide from the body's immune surveillance by surrounding themselves with cells that make it hard for the immune system to detect them. The tumor-protecting cells are white blood cells called regulatory T cells, or T-reg for short. Under ordinary circumsta...
