Feed Immune Response Altered For Viruses Like HIV And Hepatitis C (sciencedaily.com)

After an acute viral infection, some T cells generated to kill virus-infected cells remain on guard to establish long-term immunity. These so-called memory T cells, which derive from CD8 T cells, engage in a self-renewal process essential to their persistence.
