Abstract

Neonates mount poor immune responses, and it has been assumed that neonatal T cells differ qualitatively from adult T cells. Here, Becky Adkins discusses this issue in the light of recent data indicating that T cells in neonates are developmentally mature in their capacity to mount protective Th1-type and cytotoxic T lymphocyte responses.
