Immunological studies in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients suggest that the disease progression is accompanied by a defective production of type 1 cytokines (interleukin-2 (IL-2) and IL-12], an increased production of type 2 cytokines (IL-4, IL-6, and IL-10), and an increased production of IgE. HIV infection is also associated with activation of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis function and increased plasma and urinary cortisol concentrations. As cortisol is involved in… CONTINUE READING
