A new link between γδ T cells and myeloid cells in malaria?


In malaria, the immune responses leading to protective immunity versus immunopathology are unclear. Mamedov et al. (2018) identify a subset of clonally expanded γδ T cells in late-stage infection that produce M-CSF and may interact with myeloid cells to control recrudescent infection.
