IMMUNITY TO VIRUSES
•Innate and adaptive immune responses to viruses are aimed at blocking infection and eliminating infected cells .
• Infection is prevented by type I interferons as part of innate immunity and neutralizing antibodies contributing to adaptive immunity.
•Once infection is established, infected cells are eliminated by NK cells in the innate response and CTLs in the adaptive response.
