SARS-CoV-2 Infection of T Helper Cells: Implications for Immune Response in COVID-19

A recent study published in eLife provides crucial insights into how the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the cause of COVID-19, infects human CD4+ T helper cells, impacting the immune response. Here are the key findings: In conclusion, the study provides significant insights into the role of CD4+ T helper cells in COVID-19, highlighting how SARS-CoV-2 infection of these cells can lead to alterations in immune responses and contribute to the severity of the disease. Understanding these mechanisms is crucial for developing strategies to preserve immune response integrity and prevent severe outcomes in COVID-19 patients.
