Cell-Mediated Immunity to Cytomegalovirus Infection

  • Monto Ho


We have already discussed the humoral immune response to CMV infection in Chapter 6. Immunopathology mediated by specific antibody and humoral substances is discussed in the chapter on pathology (Chapter 10). The immunosuppressive effects of CMV infection in the human and in mice are treated, respectively, in Sections 13.1.5 and 16.6.3. Here we concentrate on changes in specific and nonspecific cell-mediated immunity (CMI) following infections with CMV.
