a. CD7+T
b. CD9+T
c. CD6+T
d. CD8+T

Chinese scientists defined a subset of a type of virus specific cells that play a vital role in control of replication in chronic viral infection, forming the way for new methods to treat chronic diseases like HIV-AIDS and cancer
  • Virus specific cells CD8+T appear to deplete during chronic viral infection according to online research.
  • Cells will be able to control viral replication in both animal models and HIV infection, as per research findings.
  • Researchers have a unique subset that offer higher anti viral potential than previously know thus showing greater therapeutic potential.
