Memory Lapses—Winning the Slow Race

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Pre-existing humoral immunity can impact immune responses to heterologous infections. In this issue of Immunity, Wong et al. reveal that memory B cells, while failing to re-enter the germinal center, create an affinity-restricted, diversified B cell repertoire for rapid plasma blast responses. Their findings have important implications to vaccine design.
