Responds to comments about the authors' article on how the HIV-HCV-coinfected group in their analysis had lower CD4 cell counts and a shorter observation time than the HIV-monoinfected cohort. Dynamics of viral coinfection as it impacts decline in CD4 cell counts; Certainty that other mortality analyses for HIV-HCV coinfection will continue to be performed.

    Summary. To evaluate the impact of new antiretroviral combinations (HAART: Highly Active Anti Retroviral Therapy) on HCV replication and liver enzyme levels, we analysed the changes in HCV viremia and aminotransferase levels in HIV and HCV co-infected patients. Moreover, to evaluate the...

  • Latent infection of CD4+ T cells provides a mechanism for lifelong persistence of HIV-1, even in patients on effective combination therapy. Finzi, Diana; Blankson, Joel; Siliciano, Janet D.; Margolick, Joseph B.; Chadwick, Karen; Pierson, Theodore; Smith, Kendall; Lisziewicz, Julianna; Lori, Franco; Flexner, Charles; Quinn, Thomas C.; Chaisson, Richard E.; Rosenberg, Eric; Walker, Bruce; Gange, Stephen; Gallant, Joel; Siliciano, Robert F. // Nature Medicine;May1999, Vol. 5 Issue 5, p512 

    Combination therapy for HIV-1 infection can reduce plasma virus to undetectable levels, indicating that prolonged treatment might eradicate the infection. However, HIV-1 can persist in a latent form in resting CD4[sup +] T cells. We measured the decay rate of this latent reservoir in 34 treated...

    The role of HIV-1-specific CD4[sup +] T-cell responses in controlling HIV-1 infection remains unclear. Previous work has suggested that such cells are eliminated in the early stages of infection in most subjects, and thus cannot substantially contribute to host defense against HIV-1. Here, using...
