Measles Virus-Mononuclear Cell Interactions
The immune system has evolved to defend the body from pathogens; and concurrently pathogens, including viruses, have developed a variety of ingenious strategies to interfere with the immune defense mechanisms and hence promote their persistence at the individual or population level. The outcome of an infection is thus dependent on a two-way interaction between the pathogen and cells of the immune system.
