Abstract

T-cells are an important arm of our anti-viral defense, and generally are required to clear virus once a virulent infection has occurred. In certain virus infections T-cells can cause immunopathology. For development of more rational vaccines it becomes important to acquire knowledge about the role of T-cell subpopulations in infection, their viral recognition as well as the induction requirements of protective T-cell responses.
