BACKGROUND Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is elevated in the plasma of individuals chronically infected with HIV-1 and is thought to contribute to chronic immune activation of myeloid cells and T-cells. Natural killer (NK) cells can also be stimulated by LPS in vitro. OBJECTIVES To measure plasma LPS levels in individuals with HIV-1 infection, with or without(More)
Chronic HIV-1 infection results in the expansion of both NKG2C+ and CD16+CD56- human natural killer cells. NKG2C+ cells proliferate in response to human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) and expansion of the dysfunctional CD56-CD16+ natural killer (NK) cells is associated with HIV-1 viremia. Here we report an association between increased proportions of CD56-CD16+ NK(More)
