CELLULAR IMMUNITY

In a healthy immune system, the cellular immune response works to clear foreign pathogens every day.

  • Immature dendritic cells (DCs) ingest disease antigens, then migrate to lymph nodes where they mature
  • The mature DCs activate naïve T cells and create cytotoxic T cells
  • The cytotoxic T cells proliferate, enter the circulation, search out, and kill the antigenic target
