Thymic function, aging, and AIDS.
Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)
For the first time, physicians are challenged by clinical states in which the T-cell pool is destroyed postnatally in large numbers of patients. One such state is AIDS; another is the immune damage of cancer chemotherapy. Accordingly, study of postnatal thymic function is now a matter of clinical urgency. Ongoing work may point toward new strategies for repairing a damaged T-cell repertoire.
