The progress in the use of HAART for the treatment of HIV-infected individuals has been limited by the development of viral resistance and the maintenance of viral latency. New therapeutic strategies geared toward improvement in the host's immune response are now being considered. We found that IFN-gamma induces CIITA through the JAK-STAT pathway and inhibits HIV-1 replication in latently infected cells. Its effect appears to be mediated through the reciprocal action of Tat and CIITA. With this… 
Seeking a mechanism of action for the anti-HIV properties of the CD8 antiviral factor, CAF
TLDR
These studies implicate a multi-pronged mechanism of CAF action on the LTR minimal promoter, and indicate major differences between CAF from transformed and primary CD8+ T cells.
Role of HIV-1 Tat in AIDS pathogenesis: its effects on cytokine dysregulation and contributions to the pathogenesis of opportunistic infection
TLDR
It is imperative to further investigate the molecular basis of HIV pathogenesis and identify new targets for therapeutic intervention, as new strains of HIV subtypes continue to evolve.
Inhibition of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Replication in Latently Infected Cells by a Novel IκB Kinase Inhibitor
TLDR
It is suggested that ACHP acts as a potent suppressor of TNF-α-induced HIV replication in latently infected cells and that this inhibition is mediated through suppression of IKK activity.
HIV-1 transactivator protein induction of suppressor of cytokine signaling-2 contributes to dysregulation of IFN{gamma} signaling.
TLDR
The data suggested a possible mechanism implicating the role of SOCS-2 in mediating HIV-1-induced immune evasion and dysregulation of IFNgamma signaling in primary human monocytes.
HIV-1 trans-activator protein dysregulates IFN-γ signaling and contributes to the suppression of autophagy induction
TLDR
Perturbation of such cellular processes by HIV-1 would impair the effective containment of invading pathogens, thereby providing a favorable environment for opportunistic microbes in HIV-infected individuals.
Dissociated production of perforin, granzyme B, and IFN-gamma by HIV-specific CD8(+) cells in HIV infection.
TLDR
It is proposed that ex vivo measurements of PFN and GzB secretion via ELISPOT may permit the distinction between in vivo resting versus activated CD8(+) memory T cells in healthy and HIV-infected individuals, and it is reported on a frequent ex vivo dissociation of the HIV peptide-induced secretion ofPFN andGzB in chronic HIV infection.
HIV alters the function of Cytotoxic T- Lymphocytes (CTL) and Antigen presenting cells (APC)
TLDR
The observations suggest that HIV infection results in skewing of T cells response towards a Th2 type, as it is evident by the increased expression of IL-4, IL-10 and decreased expression of IFN-γ and IL-2.
Interferon-gamma receptors in HIV-1 infection.
TLDR
Dysfunction in the interferon-gamma pathway contributes to a further impairment in cellular immune function in patients with advanced HIV-1 infection, which may further increase susceptibility to opportunistic infections.
Effect of resistance training on cytokines in HIV+ men with chemical dependence
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and substance abuse (drug and/or alcohol) independently impair the immune system; importantly, the combination of HIV infection and substance abuse might produce

Reservoirs for HIV-1: mechanisms for viral persistence in the presence of antiviral immune responses and antiretroviral therapy.
The success of combination antiretroviral therapy for HIV-1 infection has generated interest in mechanisms by which the virus can persist in the body despite the presence of drugs that effectively

TLDR
Recent developments in studies of the latent reservoir of HIV in patients receiving HAART are discussed and implications for the long-term treatment of infected individuals and eradication of the infection are discussed.
Assessment of type 1 and type 2 cytokines in HIV type 1-infected individuals: impact of highly active antiretroviral therapy.
TLDR
Evidence of changes in expression of type 1 and type 2 cytokine-specific mRNA occurring during HIV-1 infection, before and after initiation of HAART is provided to suggest that in addition to suppressing virus replication directly the immune system may be given a chance to recover.
Reciprocal modulation of transcriptional activities between HIV-1 Tat and MHC class II transactivator CIITA.
TLDR
Reciprocal actions between Tat and CIITA not only explains the functional impairment of APC in HIV-1 infection but also rationalizes the suppression of HIV- 1 virus load by induction ofCIITA such as IFN-gamma.
Inhibition of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 replication by a bioavailable serine/threonine kinase inhibitor, fasudil hydrochloride.
TLDR
The findings indicate the feasibility of clinical use of FH and its derivatives in decreasing viral load to prevent clinical development of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) among HIV-1-infected individuals.
Interferons and bacterial lipopolysaccharide protect macrophages from productive infection by human immunodeficiency virus in vitro
TLDR
The data indicate that HIV replication in previously uninfected macrophages may be regulated by an inducible host cell mechanism and suggest an antiviral role for interferons in the therapy of HIV infection.

TLDR
It is concluded from this study that IFN‐γ has a potent anti‐HIV effect on epithelial gastrointestinal cells.
IL-13 and IFN-gamma secretion by activated T cells in HIV-1 infection associated with viral suppression and a lack of disease progression.
TLDR
Results show a decline in IL-13 and IFN-gamma secretion in progressive HIV-1 infection and suggest a role for both cytokines as part of T cell adaptive responses associated with a lack of disease progression.

TLDR
Specific staining as well as electron microscopic examinations revealed the accumulation of metal gold in the cells, supporting the previous hypothesis that gold ions could block NF-kappaB-DNA binding by a redox mechanism, indicating that the monovalent gold compound AuTG is a potentially useful drug for the treatment of patients infected with HIV.
