Abstract

Although regulatory T cells protect people from autoimmunity, two recent papers inImmunity(Malchow et al., 2016; Kieback et al., 2016) demonstrate that these cells are also a crisis averted. Without the proper education in the thymus, these cells will turn on their host and cause autoimmunity.

Although regulatory T cells protect people from autoimmunity, Savage and colleagues and Fillatreau and colleagues demonstrate that these cells are also a crisis averted. Without the proper education in the thymus, these cells will turn on their host and cause autoimmunity.
