I assume that this study did not use humans or human material. It's therefore very unlikely to be relevant. This is sadly not well-known.
The title specifies human cells, so I assume it did @MeSci?
I hope so!
This article, http://www.sciencealert.com/long-term-memory-cytotoxic-immune-cells-explained, says "used a hydrogen isotope to label white blood cells inside volunteers"
And here is an article in the same edition of Nature that talks about the two T-cell based studies that I've linked today, which says "Akondy et al.1 studied people who received a vaccine for yellow fever virus" - https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-017-08280-8
so looks like human cells definitely used.
Separate names with a comma.
