The purpose of the study was to investigate potential associations between tumour necrosis factor (TNF), soluble TNF receptors (sTNF-Rs), immunoglobulin (Ig)G subclasses and development of cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease amongst human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 patients. We enrolled HIV-1 patients with CD4 counts less than 100/microl in a prospective study and followed them over 1 year for development of CMV disease. Concentrations of TNF, sTNF-RI, sTNF-RII and IgG subclass reactivities were… CONTINUE READING
