  • Selective Transmission of R5 HIV-1 over X4 HIV-1 at the Dendritic Cell-T Cell Infectious Synapse Is Determined by the T Cell Activation State. Yamamoto, Takuya; Tsunetsugu-Yokota, Yasuko; Mitsuki, Yu-ya; Mizukoshi, Fuminori; Tsuchiya, Takatsugu; Terahara, Kazutaka; Inagaki, Yoshio; Yamamoto, Naoki; Kobayashi, Kazuo; Inoue, Jun-ichiro // PLoS Pathogens;Jan2009, Vol. 5 Issue 1, p1 

    Dendritic cells (DCs) are essential antigen-presenting cells for the induction of T cell immunity against HIV. On the other hand, due to the susceptibility of DCs to HIV infection, virus replication is strongly enhanced in DC-T cell interaction via an immunological synapse formed during the...

  • Inflammatory Genital Infections Mitigate a Severe Genetic Bottleneck in Heterosexual Transmission of Subtype A and C HIV-1. Haaland, Richard E.; Hawkins, Paulina A.; Salazar-Gonzalez, Jesus; Johnson, Amber; Tichacek, Amanda; Karita, Etienne; Manigart, Olivier; Mulenga, Joseph; Keele, Brandon F.; Shaw, George M.; Hahn, Beatrice H.; Allen, Susan A.; Derdeyn, Cynthia A.; Hunter, Eric // PLoS Pathogens;Jan2009, Vol. 5 Issue 1, p1 

    The HIV-1 epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa is driven largely by heterosexual transmission of non-subtype B viruses, of which subtypes C and A are predominant. Previous studies of subtype B and subtype C transmission pairs have suggested that a single variant from the chronically infected partner...

  • Course of HIV disease does not depend on risk group: 7.5-year follow-up in 296 patients. Hengge, Ulrich R.; Franz, Barbara; Hoersch, Silke; Goos, Manfred // International Journal of STD & AIDS;Jul2003, Vol. 14 Issue 7, p451 

    Several reports on the course and progression of HIV infection with regard to the mode of transmission have yielded different results. Since comparative studies of homosexuals and intravenous drug abusers are rare, we wanted to determine the course of HIV infection and survival in an...

  • Differential Mucosal Susceptibility in HIV-1 Transmission and Infection. Moutsopoulos, N. M.; Greenwell-Wild, T.; Wahl, S. M. // Advances in Dental Research;Apr2006, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p52 

    HIV infection occurs primarily through mucosal surfaces, indicating that protection at mucosal sites may be crucial in prevention and treatment. The host innate and adaptive immune elements provide a level of protection, which differs between mucosal compartments, and appears to be most...

  • (C2) Saliva, Breast Milk, and Mucosal Fluids in HIV Transmission. Page-Shafer, K.; Sweet, S.; Kassaye, S.; Ssali, C. // Advances in Dental Research;Apr2006, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p152 

    The oral environment has received various amounts of attention in association with HIV infection and pathogenesis. Since HIV infection occurs through mucosal tissue, oral factors—including tissue, fluids, and compartments—are of interest in furthering our understanding of the...

  • Drinking and Safer Sex: Are College Students at Risk? Anderson, Peter B.; Mathieu, Debbie // Journal of Sex Education & Therapy;1998, Vol. 23 Issue 4, p297 

    Researchers warn about the spread of HIV infection among college students, low levels of condom use within this population, and the impact of alcohol consumption on risky behaviors. For the present study, questionnaires were distributed to students at several U.S. universities during the 1995-96...

  • Utilizing HIV transmission rates to assist in prioritizing HIV prevention services. Holtgrave, D. R.; Anderson, Terje // International Journal of STD & AIDS;Dec2004, Vol. 15 Issue 12, p789 

    The overall, annual HIV transmission rate in the US has been about 4% since the early 1990s. In this paper, we find that the transmission rate for persons unaware of their HIV serostatus is approximately 10.79%, and for persons aware of their HIV seropositivity is about 1.73% overall. However,...
