  • Impact of HIV on CD8+ T Cell CD57 Expression Is Distinct from That of CMV and Aging. Lee, Sulggi A.; Sinclair, Elizabeth; Hatano, Hiroyu; Hsue, Priscilla Y.; Epling, Lorrie; Hecht, Frederick M.; Bangsberg, David R.; Martin, Jeffrey N.; McCune, Joseph M.; Deeks, Steven G.; Hunt, Peter W. // PLoS ONE;Feb2014, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p1 

    Background: Chronic antigenic stimulation by cytomegalovirus (CMV) is thought to increase “immunosenesence” of aging, characterized by accumulation of terminally differentiated CD28- CD8+ T cells and increased CD57, a marker of proliferative history. Whether chronic HIV infection...

    Background & objectives: Individuals infected with HIV-1 have higher levels of chemokine producing cells compared to uninfected individuals. It is important to know the changes in chemokine levels associated with rate of progression of disease. There is a paucity of information on the plasma...

  • Early Initiation Rather Than Prolonged Duration of Antiretroviral Therapy in HIV Infection Contributes to the Normalization of CD8 T-Cell Counts. Wei Cao; Mehraj, Vikram; Trottier, Benoit; Baril, Jean-Guy; Leblanc, Roger; Lebouche, Bertrand; Cox, Joseph; Tremblay, Cecile; Wei Lu; Singer, Joel; Taisheng Li; Routy, Jean-Pierre // Clinical Infectious Diseases;1/15/2016, Vol. 62 Issue 2, p250 

    Background: CD8 T-cell counts remain elevated in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection even after long-term antiretroviral therapy (ART), which is associated with an increased risk of non-AIDS-related events. We assessed the impact of ART initiation in early versus chronic HIV infection...

    Despite major advances in the development of antiretroviral therapies, currently available treatments have no effect on the production of HIV-Tat protein once the proviral DNA is formed. Tat is a highly neurotoxic and neuroinflammatory protein, but its effects may be modulated by antibody...

    Background. There is limited information on the natural history of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in Africa, especially from individuals with well-defined dates of infection. We used data from a prospective cohort study of female sex workers in Mombasa, Kenya, who were...

    Unprotected sexual intercourse between individuals who are both infected with HIV-1 can lead to exposure to their partner's virus, and potentially to super-infection. However, the immunological consequences of continued exposure to HIV-1 by individuals already infected, has to our knowledge...

    Summary: Seven hundred and four HIV-1 /2-positive, antiretroviral therapy (ART) naïve patients were screened for HTLV-1 infection. Antibodies to HTLV-1 were found in 32/704 (4.5%) of the patients. Each co-infected individual was matched with two HIV mono-infected patients according to World...

    Background Evidence suggests an association between HIV infection and the presence of obstructive lung disease (OLD). However, the associations between specific markers of HIV infection and OLD remain unclear. A study was undertaken to determine the independent associations of HIV infection, CD4...

  • Chronic Immune Activation in HIV-1 Infection Contributes to Reduced Interferon Alpha Production via Enhanced CD40:CD40 Ligand Interaction. Donhauser, Norbert; Pritschet, Kathrin; Helm, Martin; Harrer, Thomas; Schuster, Philipp; Ries, Moritz; Bischof, Georg; Vollmer, J�rg; Smola, Sigrun; Schmidt, Barbara // PLoS ONE;Mar2012, Vol. 7 Issue 3, p1 

    Although a signature of increased interferon (IFN-)alpha production is observed in HIV-1 infection, the response of circulating plasmacytoid dendritic cells (PDC) to Toll-like receptor ligand stimulation is substantially impaired. This functional PDC deficit, which we specifically observed in...
