    Prevailing views concerning the pathogenic mechanisms of AIDS have shifted from models that focus primarily on direct HIV-mediated killing of CD4[sup+] T cells to models that emphasize the pathogenic role of generalized immune system activation.

    It is unclear why immunological control of HIV replication is incomplete in most infected individuals. We examined here the CD8[sup +]T cell response to HIV-infected CD4[sup +]T cells in rare patients with immunological control of HIV. Although high frequencies of HIV-specific CD8[sup +]T cells...

    Cell-mediated immune responses are important for the control of HIV replication in vivo. Cytotoxic CD8+ T cells (CTL) recognize and kill HIV-infected cells which display MHC class-I proteins. In addition to the recognition and killing of infected cells, CD8+T cells can interfere with stages of...

    Background. Despite suppression of the human immunodeficiency virus type1 (HIV-1)load by highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), recovery of CD4+ Tcell counts can be impaired. We investigated whether this impairment may be associated with hyporesponsiveness of T cells to γ-chain (γc)...

    Aim: HIV infection is associated with distortion of T-cell homeostasis and the IL-7/IL7R axis. Progressive infection results in loss of CD127+1322 and gains in CD1272132+ CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells. We investigated the correlates of loss of CD127 from the T-cell surface to understand mechanisms...
