Immunity to enteric viruses
Ainsley Lockhart, Daniel Mucida, Roham Parsa
Pathogenic enteric viruses are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly among children in developing countries. In this review, Mucida and colleagues discuss natural and vaccine-acquired immunity to enteric viruses, highlighting specialized features of the intestinal immune system. A deeper mechanistic understanding of enteric anti-viral immunity can lead to better vaccines for existing and emerging viruses.
