The activation and dynamics of cytokine expression by CD4+ T cells and AIDS progression in HIV-1-infected Chinese individuals.


CD4(+) T cells are the main targets of HIV-1 and play a central role during the progression of AIDS, but the mechanism has not been clearly elucidated. In the present study, blood samples were collected from HIV-1-infected Chinese individuals, including typical progressors (TPs) and long-term nonprogressors (LTNPs). More HIV-1 productively infected CD4(+) T… (More)
