Heterologous immunity: Immunopathology, autoimmunity and protection during viral infections – Source: Autoimmunity, Jan 20, 2011

  [ 8 votes ]   [ 1 Comment ]
By Liisa K Selin, MD, PhD, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • January 24, 2011


Heterologous immunity is a common phenomenon present in all infections. Most of the time it is beneficial, mediating protective immunity, but in some individuals that have the wrong crossreactive response it leads to a cascade of events that result in severe immunopathology.

Infections have been associated with:

Autoimmune diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis and lupus erythematosis,

But also with unusual autoimmune-like pathologies where the immune system appears dysregulated, such as sarcoidosis [inflammation/tiny lumps of cells in various tissues], colitis [inflammation of colon], panniculitis [inflammation of fatty layer under the skin], bronchiolitis obliterans [inflamed/scarred small airways], infectious mononucleosis [Epstein-Barr] and even chronic fatigue syndrome.

Here we review the evidence that to better understand these autoreactive pathologies it requires an evaluation of how T cells are regulated and evolve during sequential infections with different pathogens under the influence of heterologous immunity.

Killer T Cells disappearing
Posted by: Cheryllemarie

I just discovered ,through new blood tests, that I have almost no KT Cells left in my body. I also have a possible virus infection in my intestines of either CMV or HHV6. (In addition I have Lyme Disease and all the other attending immune problems and viruses). But, in investigating this new intestinal problem, I ran across scetchy information about T cells attaching to the mucous lining of an intestine infected with these viruses. This sounds stupid, but is it remotely possible that's where my KT cells went??????
