Absolute CD4+ T cell count overstate immune recovery assessed by CD4+/CD8+ ratio in HIV-infected patients on treatment.

To analyse the correlation and concordance between aCD4, CD4%, CD4/CD8, their intra-patient variability, and to compare the immune recovery (IR) rates based on the three parameters in HIV-infected pat...

A high-resolution mass cytometry analysis reveals a delay of cytokines production after TLR4 or TLR7/8 engagements in HIV-1 infected humans.

HIV infection is associated with chronic inflammation in both non-treated and treated patients. TLR-dependent mechanisms are strongly involved in the maintenance of this inflammation. Indeed, the resi...

Differential Pathogen-Specific Immune Reconstitution in Antiretroviral Therapy-Treated Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Infected Children.

Susceptibility to coinfections in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients remains increased despite antiretroviral therapy (ART). To elucidate mechanisms involved in immune reconstitution...

Adhesion molecule gene variants and plasma protein levels in patients with suspected obstructive sleep apnea.

Untreated obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Adhesion molecules, including soluble E-selectin (sE-selectin), intercellular adhesion molecule...

Rapid hepatitis C virus clearance by antivirals correlates with immune status of infected patients.

Altered immune parameters associated with HCV genotype 1b infection and their correlation with virus eradication in DAA-treated patients were examined. Thirty-one HCV-infected patients were treated wi...

Determination of Lymphocyte JAM-C Expression in Patients With Psoriasis Vulgaris

The stepwise process of leukocyte extravasation to inflamed tissues depends on the expression of a variety of cytokines and adhesion molecules. Recently much attention has focused on the J...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surface ligands that mediate cell-to-cell adhesion and function in the assembly and interconnection of the vertebrate nervous system. These molecules promote cell adhesion via a homophilic mechanism. These are not to be confused with NEURAL CELL ADHESION MOLECULES, now known to be expressed in a variety of tissues and cell types in addition to nervous tissue.

Cell adhesion molecules that mediate neuron-neuron adhesion and neuron-astrocyte adhesion. They are expressed on neurons and Schwann cells, but not astrocytes and are involved in neuronal migration, neurite fasciculation, and outgrowth. Ng-CAM is immunologically and structurally distinct from NCAM.

Semisynthetic conjugates of various toxic molecules, including RADIOACTIVE ISOTOPES and bacterial or plant toxins, with specific immune substances such as IMMUNOGLOBULINS; MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES; and ANTIGENS. The antitumor or antiviral immune substance carries the toxin to the tumor or infected cell where the toxin exerts its poisonous effect.

Cell surface molecules on cells of the immune system that specifically bind surface molecules or messenger molecules and trigger changes in the behavior of cells. Although these receptors were first identified in the immune system, many have important functions elsewhere.

Renal syndrome in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients characterized by nephrotic syndrome, severe proteinuria, focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis with distinctive tubular and interstitial changes, enlarged kidneys, and peculiar tubuloreticular structures. The syndrome is distinct from heroin-associated nephropathy as well as other forms of kidney disease seen in HIV-infected patients.
