HIV-1 use CD4 receptors to infect their primary targets, CD4+ cells, whereas CD8+ cells have a protective role against HIV-1. We recently isolated HIV-1-producing CD8+ clones from two AIDS patients. Here we show that although HIV-1 produced by CD8+ cells maintained the ability to infect CD4+ cells, these viruses were able to infect CD8+ cells independent of(More)

Intravenous ganciclovir (GCV) and oral valganciclovir remain the treatment of choice in this setting. Limited data are available on GCV-resistant (GCV-R) CMV infection in small intestine and multivisceral transplant recipients. (More)
