Neurovirulent simian immunodeficiency virus infection induces neuronal, endothelial, and glial apoptosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Studies of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) associated dementia have shown neuronal loss in discrete areas. The presence and mechanism of neuronal death, however, has remained quite elusive. One mechanism of cell death, apoptosis, has been clearly demonstrated outside the central nervous system (CNS) in HIV-1 infection but has not been… (More)
