HLA class I antigens in severe RSV bronchiolitis.
Isaacs D., Taylor CJ., Ting A., McMichael AJ.
Cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTL) recognize virus-infected cells in association with HLA class I antigens. There is strong evidence of the importance of CTL in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections. We looked for but were unable to demonstrate an association between particular HLA class I antigens and severe RSV bronchiolitis in infants.
