MAIT cells are an unusual kind of T-cell which guard the integrity of the gut lining

In decades of immune research, nobody has ever called attention to the specialized T-cells called MAIT cells in ME/CFS. Recently, though, two research efforts, working independently, have highlighted these unique cells – which form a bridge between the gut and the immune system.
