    Immune Restoration Diseases (IRD) are a collection of atypical 'opportunistic infections' and inflammatory diseases seen in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) patients after HIV viraemia is suppressed by highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). IRD probably reflect dysregulated immune...

    Single-cell analysis captures the heterogeneity of T-cell populations that target defined antigens. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection results in defects of antimycobacterial immunity, which remain poorly defined. We therefore recruited a small number of subjects, including those with...

    Background. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)—associated tuberculosis is a major cause of mortality in Africa. The assay of T cell interferon-γ released in response to antigens of greater specificity than purified protein derivative is a useful improvement over the Mantoux tuberculin...

    Patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) typically seroconvert within weeks of primary infection. In rare cases, patients do not develop antibodies against HIV-1 despite demonstrable infection. We describe here a human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-B*5802-positive individual...

    Background. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) uses 2 distinct chemokine receptors, CCR5 (R5) or CXCR4 (X4), during entry. Viruses may be R5 tropic, X4 tropic, or dual/mixed (D/M) tropic. R5-tropic virus predominates at high CD4 cell counts, with the number of X4-tropic strains increasing as CD4...

    Background: Although patients with idiopathic CD4+ T-lymphocytopenia and serious opportunistic infections have been described previously, the clinical and immunologic features of this condition have not been well defined. Methods: We studied in detail five patients with idiopathic CD4+...
