Immune Cells Detect Salmonella Threat Levels

How immune cells detect different threat levels from salmonella

A new study from the Allen Discovery Center at Stanford University finds that macrophages, a type of immune cell that is part of our first line of defense against infections, has an even more fine-tuned sensory system to detect the infectious bacteria than previously thought.
