T Cell-Mediated Immunity

Once they have completed their development in the thymus, T cells enter the bloodstream and are carried by the circulation. On reaching a peripheral lymphoid organ they leave the blood again to migrate through the lymphoid tissue, returning to the bloodstream to recirculate between blood and peripheral lymphoid tissue until they encounter their specific antigen. Mature recirculating T cells that have not yet encountered their antigens are known as naive T cells. To participate in an adaptive immune response, a naive T cell must first encounter antigen, and then be induced to proliferate and differentiate into cells capable of contributing to the removal of the antigen.
