A persistent immune response to an acute viral infection

... parvovirus B19, traditionally not thought to be a true persistent infection, indicates that the virus likely remains in the patient's body long after symptoms have cleared up. The findings, reported in the open access journal PLoS Medicine, give a better understanding of the body's T cell response and h...
