Evaluation of the putative role of C-C chemokines as protective factors of HIV-1 infection in seronegative hemophiliacs exposed to contaminated hemoderivatives.


BACKGROUND Overproduction of beta-chemokines and genetic variations in chemokine receptors have been correlated with protection against infection by HIV-1 or slow progression to AIDS in infected individuals. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS The protective role of chemokines and their receptors was evaluated in a group of seven uninfected (seronegative… (More)
