Scientists find tiny part in body that may be key to how vaccines work

Dr Kim Jacobson.

Dr Kim Jacobson has offered her expert opinion on a recent discovery, published in Nature Communications, of a new structure in the body which may explain why we develop immunity to some diseases but not others. The structure is believed to host vaccine-trained cells while they wait for bugs. In an article published in The AgeSydney Morning Herald and more, Dr Jacobson stated that it is highly critical for successful vaccines to get high-quality cells into this structure, so that they can clear infections before the pathogen causes lasting damage.
