To determine whether IFN-α is a cause of the T cell hyperactivation and IL-7 signaling pathway defects that are observed in some HIV patients receiving antiretroviral therapy, we have investigated the effect of IFN-α on the proliferation of CD4(+) and CD8(+) T cells from healthy donors (n = 30) and treated HIV(+) donors (n = 20). PBMC were cultured for 7 d(More)
Pulmonary infections with non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) affect a subset of older individuals (mostly women) with no known immunological defects. As NTMs are intracellular pathogens, it is important to establish whether NTM disease is associated with defective production of Th1 cytokines or poor responses by host macrophage/monocytes. We have shown that(More)
