Major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-restricted CD8 + cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) mediate one of the conventional cellular immune responses to virus-infected cells. The role of this class of cells in viral infections has been reviewed in the present forum by Ada and colleagues.
Our laboratory has examined another antiviral activity of CD8 ÷ cells: non-cytolytic suppression of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication (Walker et al., 1986) which is the subject of the present summary.
