Does NK Memory Exist? The Reeves Lab Shows It Does

Keith Reeves and colleagues at CVVR published in Nature Immunology this month that robust, durable, antigen-specific natural killer (NK) cell memory can be induced in primates after both infection and vaccination. This data upsets the long held maxim that NK cells are nonspecific parts of the innate immune system, and raises the possibility that NK cells might be harnessed in the development of vaccines for HIV and other pathogens.
