The level of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication in patients reflects a balance between stimulatory and inhibitory host factors (particularly endogenous cytokines). New information concerning the cellular co-receptors for HIV and the cellular tropism of different strains of virus will advance our understanding of HIV-induced pathogenesis and suggests new therapeutic and preventive strategies. 
Pathogenesis and treatment of HIV-1 infection: recent developments.
TLDR
An improved understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms of AIDS, combined with recent insights into the dynamics of viral infection, and the cellular co-receptors for HIV-1, may provide powerful new opportunities for therapeutic intervention against this virus.
Pathogenesis and treatment of HIV-1 infection: recent developments (Y2K update).
TLDR
An improved understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms of AIDS, combined with recent insights into the dynamics of viral infection may provide powerful new opportunities for therapeutic intervention against this virus.
CXCL16 in HIV infection – a link between inflammation and viral replication
TLDR
The regulation and the effects of CXCL16, a newly discovered chemokine of the CXC family, in HIV‐infected patients is examined.
Host factors in the pathogenesis of HIV disease
TLDR
This area of investigation will no doubt yield novel therapeutic strategies for intervention in HIV disease; however, caution is warranted in light of the enormous complexity of the pleiotropic cytokine and chemokine networks and the uncertainty inherent in manipulating these systems.
Evidence for a role of T‐helper type 2 cytokines in the acquisition of human immunodeficiency virus syncytium‐inducing phenotype

The objective of the present study was to investigate the relationship between the serum cytokine pattern of T‐helper (Th) response and the acquisition of syncytium‐inducing (SI) human
Potential for immune reconstitution through G-CSF treatment of HIV patients.
TLDR
Recombinant granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) has diverse immunomodulatory properties which may be beneficial in aiding immune reconstitution.
HIV and AIDS: 20 years of science
TLDR
Some of the other important areas of accomplishment include the development of blood tests for HIV and increased knowledge of the molecular virology, epidemiology and pathogenesis of this virus.
Can the thymus win the battle against drug-resistant HIV?
TLDR
HIV isolates resistant to protease inhibitor treatment have an impaired ability to replicate in thymocytes, allowing T- cell production to continue despite the peripheral T-cell decline, and this might teach new ways to protect the immune system from highly pathogenic strains of HIV-1.
HIV-Macrophage Interactions at the Cellular and Molecular Level
TLDR
Efforts directed at understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying HIV-macrophage interactions remain the basis for devising novel and efficacious therapeutic strategies against HIV ant the AIDS epidemic.

The immunopathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus infection.
TLDR
The human immunodeficiency virus is probably the most intensively studied virus in the history of biomedical research, and many of the pathogenic mechanisms associated with HIV infection that lead to clinical disease have been established.
Biologic features of HIV-1 that correlate with virulence in the host.
TLDR
The development of disease was found to be correlated with the emergence of HIV-1 variants that were more cytopathic in vitro as the disease progressed and that replicated more efficiently in a wide variety of different human cells.
Viral dynamics in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 infection
TLDR
Almost complete replacement of wild-type virus in plasma by drug-resistant variants occurs after fourteen days, indicating that HIV-1 viraemia is sustained primarily by a dynamic process involving continuous rounds of de novo virus infection and replication and rapid cell turnover.
Multifactorial nature of human immunodeficiency virus disease: implications for therapy.
The immunopathogenic mechanisms underlying human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease are extremely complex; the disease process is multifactorial with multiple overlapping phases. Viral burden is
Aids as Immune System Activation
TLDR
The hypothesis that AIDS and HIV disease are the result of inappropriate immune system activation triggered by viral gp 120 signalling at CD4, and the failure of antiviral strategies to affect the clinical course of disease in infected individuals is formulated.
Prognosis in HIV-1 Infection Predicted by the Quantity of Virus in Plasma
TLDR
Plasma viral load was a better predictor of progression to AIDS and death than was the number of CD4+ T cells, and the risk of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and death in study subjects was directly related to plasma viral load at study entry.
Transient elevation of serum HIV antigen levels associated with intercurrent infection.
TLDR
Little has been reported about an individual's day to day variations in antigen levels, or of the factors that may influence the degree of antigenaemia.
Genotypic and phenotypic characterization of HIV-1 patients with primary infection.
TLDR
In five HIV-1 seroconverters, the viral phenotype was found to be uniformly macrophage-tropic and non-syncytium-inducing and the viruses were genotypically homogeneous within each patient, but a common signature sequence was not discernible among transmitted viruses.
