Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6), a T-lymphotropic human herpesvirus, is a potentially immunosuppressive agent that has been suggested to play a role as a cofactor in the natural history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. We studied the interactions between HHV-6 and gamma/delta T lymphocytes, a subset of T cells involved in the protective immune response against specific microorganisms. Polyclonal gamma/delta T cell populations, purified from the peripheral blood of healthy adults and… CONTINUE READING
