Hello everyone
I would like to know what happens to a T-cells population (repertoire)
when the thymus becomes non-functional, at the adult phase? Does this
person lose all of her matured T-cells? Does she also lose her self
tolerance and become vulnerable to autoimmune diseases? How does she
keep her T-cells? Thank you.
