The viral reservoir represents a critical challenge for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) eradication strategies. However, it remains unclear when and where the viral reservoir is seeded during acute infection and the extent to which it is susceptible to early antiretroviral therapy (ART). Here we show that the viral reservoir is seeded rapidly(More)
Platelet-derived growth factors (PDGF) may contribute to the activation and growth of smooth muscle that is characteristic of airway remodeling in asthmatic patients. Early growth response 1 (EGR-1) is a transcription factor that is induced in several cell types by PDGF and may mediate some of the effects of PDGF. We show that human airway smooth muscle(More)
