1. Aberrant induction of regulatory activity of CD4+CD25+ T cells by dendritic cells in HIV-infected persons with amebic liver abscess.
Match Strength: 10.831
To know why HIV-1-infected persons are particularly susceptible to amebic liver abscess (ALA), we investigated the role of CD4CD25 T cells in the susceptibility of HIV-1-infected persons to this disease. Herein we show, in early stage HIV-1-infected subjects, that CD4 T-cell responses to Entamoeba histolytica antigen (EhAg) were selectively impaired, especially in those with ALA. EhAg-specific CD4 T-cell responses were normalized by depletion of CD4CD25 cells or by addition of anti-cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen 4 (CTLA4) antibody. Regulatory activity of CD4CD25 T cells to suppress the EhAg ... Read More »
