Anti-lymphocyte (ALA) antibodies were investigated by using both microcytotoxicity and immunofluorescence analyses in 87 subjects with different clinical features of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. A similar mean percentage of killing in microcytotoxicity assays using heterologous lymphocytes as cellular target was recorded in four groups of patients, including 36 HIV-seropositive asymptomatic subjects, 34 patients with HIV-induced lymphadenopathy syndrome (LAS), 13 with acquired… CONTINUE READING
