virus specific T cells:

    Coronavirus may have a silver lining, according to a study by a scientist at Dalhousie University. Dr. Shashi Gujar, with the department of pathology at Dal, along with colleagues in the United States, Denmark, France, Germany, and India, is studying if the immune response against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, could be repurposed to fight cancer using the immune system, a news release on the Dalhousie University website stated. ARE YOU PROTECTED FROM CORONAVIRUS IF YOU'VE BATTLED THE COMMON COLD? The body’s immune system detects foreign viruses and bacteria as threats but it does not do this to cancer, the release stated.

    T-lymphocytes (T-cells) in some people‘s bodies may have the ability to recognize COVID-19, despite it being a new virus, according to researchers in Singapore. Their findings suggest exposure to types of coronaviruses in the past can produce “memory T-cells” in certain people's blood, possibly helping them to fight off the novel coronavirus. The researchers of the small study published in Nature are also hopeful that these T-cells may help in the development of a vaccine for COVID-19. WHY CORONAVIRUS OCCURS LESS IN CHILDREN THAN ADULTS, ACCORDING TO NEW STUDY “It is important to send the message that T-cells and not only antibodies are an essential part of antiviral immunity," Dr. Antonio Bertoletti, a professor of emerging infectious diseases at the Duke-NUS Medical School, and study co-author, told...
