Infection of human marrow stroma by human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) is both required and sufficient for HIV-1-induced hematopoietic suppression in vitro: demonstration by gene modification of primary human stroma.


Patients with human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) infection often present with bone marrow (BM) failure that may affect all hematopoietic lineages. It is presently unclear whether this failure reflects a direct viral impairment of the CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells or whether the virus affects the BM microenvironment. To study the effects of HIV-1… (More)
