Inverse correlation between CD8+ lymphocyte apoptosis and CD4+ cell counts during potent antiretroviral therapy in HIV patients.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES We have addressed the relationships between inhibition of CD4+ and CD8+ cell apoptosis and CD4+ cell recovery in HIV patients undergoing potent antiretroviral therapy (PART) by correlating apoptosis levels with virological and immunological parameters detected over a long-term period in HIV patients undergoing therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS… (More)
