Summary of "HIV and Age Do Not Synergistically Affect Age-Related T cell Markers."

Despite major progress in controlling HIV disease through anti-retroviral therapy (ART), changes in immune phenotype and function persist in individuals with chronic HIV, raising questions about accelerated aging of the immune system.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The phenomenon of antibody-mediated target cell destruction by non-sensitized effector cells. The identity of the target cell varies, but it must possess surface IMMUNOGLOBULIN G whose Fc portion is intact. The effector cell is a "killer" cell possessing Fc receptors. It may be a lymphocyte lacking conventional B- or T-cell markers, or a monocyte, macrophage, or polynuclear leukocyte, depending on the identity of the target cell. The reaction is complement-independent.

Components of the B-cell antigen receptor that function in B-cell antigen receptor heavy chain transport to the PLASMA MEMBRANE. They are expressed almost exclusively by B-LYMPHOCYTES and are markers for B-cell NEOPLASMS.

An approximately 230 amino acid membrane glycoprotein characterized by an IMMUNOGLOBULIN V-SET DOMAIN in its N-terminal half. It is expressed by MONOCYTES and NEUTROPHILS in response to INFLAMMATION related to bacterial and fungal infections. It triggers the release of pro-inflammatory CHEMOKINES; CYTOKINES, and expression of cell activation markers and is a critical regulator of SEPTIC SHOCK.

Factor isolated in a variety of tissues including epithelium, and maternal decidua. It is closely related to EPIDERMAL GROWTH FACTOR and binds to the EGF receptor. TGF-alpha acts synergistically with TGF-beta in inducing phenotypic transformation, but its physiological role is unknown.

Measurable and quantifiable biological parameters (e.g., specific enzyme concentration, specific hormone concentration, specific gene phenotype distribution in a population, presence of biological substances) which serve as indices for health- and physiology-related assessments, such as disease risk, psychiatric disorders, environmental exposure and its effects, disease diagnosis, metabolic processes, substance abuse, pregnancy, cell line development, epidemiologic studies, etc.
