Abstract:

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is a worldwide epidemic where infected individuals usually develop acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV is primarily spread by sexual transmission across mucosal tissue where dendritic cells (DC) reside. DC regulate immune responses through their unique ability to capture antigen, migrate to lymphoid tissue, and activate naive T cells.
