gammadelta T cells provide a breath of fresh air for asthma research

Nat Med. 1999 Oct;5(10):1127-8. doi: 10.1038/13447.

Abstract

gammadelta T cells downregulate airways responsiveness to allergen challenge, possibly by controlling the 'repair' response of the airway epithelium to alphabeta T cell-mediated damage (pages 1150-1156).
