A 'special relationship'?: Harold Wilson, Lyndon B. Johnson and Anglo-American relations 'at the summit', 1964-68

Drawing upon an in depth diversity of resources from either side of the Atlantic, this booklet offers the 1st full-length research of the arguable dating among Harold Wilson and Lyndon B. Johnson. whereas Wilson was once an organization supporter of the belief of a "special dating" among Britain and the U.S. and desired to use his dealings with the White condo to reinforce his credentials as an international statesman, Johnson held the British chief in low esteem and disdained the assumption of a "special" Anglo-American dating.

SGM LaTeX2e(2002/01/18) P1: FHD PAMER advances in our understanding of CD8 T cell priming are of particular relevance to antimicrobial immunity. How important are CD8 T cells in antimicrobial defense? The answer to this question is not simple, since many arms of the adaptive and innate immune system functionally overlap with CD8 T cells during immune defense. While adoptively transferred CD8 T cells can protect immunologically na¨ıve individuals from lethal infection, or control viral infection in immunocompromised recipients, individuals with defects in the MHC class I antigen processing pathway are remarkably resistant (with some important exceptions) to pathogens that induce CD8 T cell responses.

Phillip Wong and Eric G. org Key Words cytotoxic T lymphocytes, microbial immunity, bacteria, viruses, protozoans ■ Abstract CD8 T cells respond to viral infections but also participate in defense against bacterial and protozoal infections. In the last few years, as new methods to accurately quantify and characterize pathogen-specific CD8 T cells have become available, our understanding of in vivo T cell responses has increased dramatically. Pathogenspecific T cells, once thought to be quite rare following infection, are now known to be present at very high frequencies, particularly in peripheral, nonlymphoid tissues.
