Organizations: University Medical Center Freiburg, Internal Medicine & Inst Neuropathology, Freiburg, (Germany)
Purpose: Assessment of Exhaustion profiles of CD8 T cells in COVID19 neuropathology
Conclusion: Single-cell analysis by suspension mode mass cytometry indeed revealed heterogeneity of CD8 T cell phenotypes in one COVID-19 brain, and enrichment of CD8 T cells with an exhausted phenotype in the medulla and olfactory bulb, but also detection of other perforin+ cytotoxic CD8 T cells without typical features of exhaustion.
