Impaired IFN-gamma-secreting capacity in mycobacterial antigen-specific CD4 T cells during chronic HIV-1 infection despite long-term HAART.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether long-term HAART in chronic HIV-1 infection restores fully functional Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB)-specific CD4 T-cell responses. DESIGN: A cross-sectional study of HIV-1-seropositive subjects on continuous HAART for over one year with CD4 cell counts greater than 300 cells/microl and undetectable viraemia, antiretroviral-naive individuals with primary HIV-1 infection (PHI), and healthy bacillus Calmette-Guérin-vaccinated low-risk controls.
