Release of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor by alveolar macrophages in the lung of HIV-1-infected patients. A mechanism accounting for macrophage and neutrophil accumulation.

Abstract

In this paper, the release of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) in the lung of patients with HIV-1 infection was evaluated. This cytokine has well recognized effects on granulocyte and macrophage growth and differentiation and plays some role in the mechanisms leading to the accumulation of alveolar macrophages (AM) in patients with… (More)
