Role of Serum Adenosine Deaminase Activity as a Prognostic Marker in HIV Patients on Antiretroviral Therapy : A Prospective Study

c Abstract: Background: HIV infection is characterized by replication by aberrant immune activation and persistent inflammation. HIV infection is associated with loss of CD4 T cells, resulting in dysfunction of immune system. Adenosine Deaminase (ADA) has a cytokine-like costimulatory role in T cell proliferation. Materials and Methods: The study included… (More)
