TH1/TH2 cytokines' imbalance is critical to HIV-1 progression and pathogenesis. Opportunistic infections-related cytokine perturbations in the setting of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) are unclear. The objective of this cross-sectional study was to identify the relationship between TH1/TH2 cytokines and viremia in HAART patients with/without opportunistic infections. Sera from 17 HAART patients with and 43 without opportunistic infections, and 20 HIV-seronegative controls were… CONTINUE READING
