T-lymphocytes and cell-mediated immunity are concerned with virus-infected cells rather than free virus. Virus-immune T lymphocytes recognize viral antigens in association with self-major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I glycoproteins [21]. These T lymphocytes perform key regulatory functions of the immune system. Through these T-cell receptors, the CD4 and CD8 molecules participate in an immune response leading to an interaction with antigen presenting cells, release of cytokines, proliferation of a host of cells with cytolytic destruction of target cells [22].

The initial rapid-onset ‘innate’ response against the virus involves the synthesis of proteins, namely interferons, and the stimulation of ‘natural killer (NK)’ lymphocytes [12, 13]. In some cases, the innate response may be enough to prevent a wide spread infection. However, if the infection evolves beyond the first few rounds of viral replication, the ‘adaptive immune response’ comes into play [14]. The adaptive 40 P. Amin and V. Amin immune response itself has two components: The humoral response and the cellmediated response.
