The virus-specific CD8+ T cell responses of 21 HIV-infected patients were studied including a unique cohort of long-term nonprogressors with low levels of plasma viral RNA and strong proliferative responses to HIV Ags. HIV-specific CD8+ T cell responses were studied by a combination of standard cytotoxic T cell (CTL) assays, MHC tetramers, and TCR(More)

The aim was to identify predictive markers of CD4+ cell count declines to < 350/microL in CD4-guided antiretroviral treatment interruptions. METHODS 27 HIV-infected(More)
