Natural killer (NK) cells are part of the innate immune system important in the control of viral infections and recent evidence suggests that they may play a role in the pathogenesis of HIV. Long-term non-progressor (LTNP) HIV patients who control replication of the virus and show a delayed disease progression have naturally occurring successful immune… CONTINUE READING
