[Newsdesk] Research brief

Description: Scientists have discovered that high concentrations of conjoined immune cells, or doublets, in blood samples can signal severe cases of diseases such as tuberculosis and dengue fever. Having anecdotally noticed the association, they substantiated it in analysis of blood samples from patients from the USA, Sri Lanka, and Peru. They showed that the doublets were the combination of a T cell and a monocyte, which they say makes sense, given that monocytes are reservoirs for disease in these two infections, so T cells will be more likely to find, interact closely, and form doublets with them.
