Mycobacterial T cell responses in HIV-infected patients with advanced immunosuppression.

Abstract:

Antimycobacterial T cell reactivity at different stages of HIV infection was investigated. Subjects were screened with purified protein derivative (PPD), early secreted antigenic target (ESAT)-6, and culture filtrate protein (CFP)-10 antigens for interferon (IFN)-gamma-producing effector T cell responses by direct ex vivo enzyme-linked immunospot (ELISpot) assay. The proportion of responders to PPD tuberculin decreased with a reduction in CD4 T cell count, whereas the proportion of responder ...
