Hypothetical interactions between #SARSCoV2 infected cells, antigen-presenting cells-CD4 & CD8 T cells. Viral peptides presented to the TCR repertoire on infected cell-> CD4 cells secrete IFN-γ, TNF-α IL-2. CD8 cells lyse infected target cells #COVID19
According to a new Perspective in , 9 studies – some published, others available as preprints – exemplify the need to investigate T cell responses to #COVID19 to fully understand population-level immunity to the #SARSCoV2 virus.

#COVID19 The attention on immunity has so far focused too much on neutralizing antibodies, not enough on T cell immunity. Excellent new article today reviews key learnings from recent studies on T cell immunity and its role in protection against #SARSCoV2
A good review (at least until more data comes out again) on current understanding and questions re COVID19 effective immunity. SARS-CoV-2 T cell immunity: Specificity, function, durability, and role in protection
