T cell co-stimulation is a key component of adaptive immunity to viral infection but has also been associated with pathology due to excessive or altered T cell activity. We recently demonstrated that the TNFR family co-stimulatory molecule OX40 (CD134) is critically required to sustain antiviral T cell and antibody responses that enable control of viral replication in the context of chronic LCMV infection. Here, we investigated whether reinforcing OX40 stimulation through an agonist antibody had the potential…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
