Notes


- Corynebacterium mastitidis elicited a commensal-specific interleukin 17 response from γδ T cells in the ocular mucosa that was central to local immunity.
- The commensal-specfic response drove neutrophil recruitment and the release of antimicrobials into the tears, and protected the eye from pathogenic Candida albicans or Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection.
