    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...
