Increased apoptosis in CD4+ T lymphocytes plays an important role in the pathogenesis of HIV infection and it has also invoked some HIV-related as well as antiretroviral-related adverse events. We assessed whether increased apoptosis is also present in the skeletal muscle of HIV-infected patients. We included 36 consecutive individuals, 18 without (group A) and 18 with HIV infection. The latter group consisted of five asymptomatic antiretroviral-naive HIV-infected individuals (group B), six… CONTINUE READING
