Primary cutaneous lymphomas (CLs) constitute a spectrum of diseases characterized by a clonal accumulation of lymphocytes in the skin. Most CLs display a T(h)2 cytokine profile, including expression of interleukin-10 (IL-10). Because the up-regulation of HLA-G, a nonclassical class Ib molecule inducible by IL-10, might account for the immunescape of the(More)
Bacterial translocation from the gut and subsequent immune activation are hallmarks of HIV infection and are thought to determine disease progression. Intestinal barrier integrity is impaired early in acute retroviral infection, but levels of plasma lipopolysaccharide (LPS), a marker of bacterial translocation, increase only later. We examined humanized(More)
