To test whether in vitro infection of macrophages with either human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or mycobacteria would influence the replication of the other pathogen, macrophages were infected sequentially with the macrophage-tropic isolate HTLV-IIIBa-L/85 and Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv or Mycobacterium avium. The intracellular growth of mycobacteria was measured by colony counting and radiometric assay of macrophage lysates and the replication of HIV by the release of p24 antigen into… CONTINUE READING
