Martin Schwacha, PhD, Professor of Trauma Research, article featured on MDLinx.com: Dr. Schwacha's article, 'Mitochondrial damage-associated molecular patterns activate Gamma-Delta T-cells'. His findings support the concept that the mitochondrial DAMPs (MTDs) released after tissue / cellular injury are capable of activating the gamma-delta T-cells, thus initiating sterile inflammation as well as subsequent healing processes.
