To the Editor A progressive decline in plasma or serum selenium (Se) levels, paralleling the loss of CD4+ T cells, has been widely documented in HIV-1 infections. As recently reviewed (1), such observations have been reported in over 20 papers published over the last decade (originating from independent laboratories in at least six diierent countries), and have been noted in asymptomatic as well as symptomatic HIV patients, and children as well as adults 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]. The observations of a… CONTINUE READING
