The HIV protease inhibitor indinavir reduces immature dendritic cell transendothelial migration.
Indinavir (IDV) is a protease inhibitor that successfully suppresses HIV-1 replication as part of anti-retroviral therapy. There is evidence to suggest that IDV may also act non-specifically upon host proteases. In this study we investigated whether IDV could modulate protease-dependent molecules involved in dendritic cell (DC) migration - a pivotal process in immunoregulation. Human monocyte-derived DC were exposed to IDV (IDV-DC) and transendothelial migration (TEM) to inflammatory chemokin...Expand abstract
