OBJECTIVE A significant number of HIV-1 patients experience poor immune reconstitution despite long-term viral suppression with highly active antiretroviral therapy (immunological non-responders). The aims of the present study were to determine whether eradication of Helicobacter pylori could facilitate a better immune reconstitution in these patients. METHODS Forty-nine immunological non-responder HIV-1 patients were evaluated by (13)C-urea breath test (UBT) for the presence of active H… CONTINUE READING
