natural killer cells

Natural killer cells (NK) are a type of lymphocyte critical to the immune system. NK cells provide rapid responses to viral-infected cells and respond to tumor formation, acting at around 3 days after infection. The role of NK cells in both the innate and adaptive immune responses is becoming increasingly important in research using NK cell activity and potential cancer therapies.
