The role of natural killer cells in host-parasite interactions.

Author information

University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School of Medicine, Philadelphia, USA.


Natural killer cells contribute to resistance to infectious organisms, and may also influence the nature of the adaptive immune response associated with infection. During the past year, their role in these events has been more clearly defined. In addition, the results of several recent studies that have begun to define the mechanisms by which natural killer cells recognize their targets will be important in further elucidating their role in infectious disease.
