Distinct cytokine and regulatory T cell profile at pleural sites of dual HIV/tuberculosis infection compared to that in the systemic circulation.

Abstract

Pleural tuberculosis (TB) remains a common presentation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infection in HIV/TB dually infected subjects, and both cellular and acellular components of the pleural milieu promote HIV-1 replication; however, they remain uncharacterized.
