Residual Replication of HIV-1 in the Gut Associated Lymphoid Tissue (GALT) of Patients on Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART): the ANRS EP 44 Study

2014-08-27 03:17:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

HIV-1 cannot be eradicated from infected individuals by current antiretroviral regimens. Cellular reservoirs and tissue sanctuary sites allow latent HIV-1 persistence and ongoing low-level virus replication. This project aims to characterize the residual replication of HIV-1 in subjects on antiretroviral therapy, particularly in the gut-associated lymphoid tissue.

Description

Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) successfully controls HIV-1 replication in most individuals, resulting in substantial immune restoration and decreased morbidity and mortality. However HIV-1 cannot be eradicated from infected individuals by current regimens. Cellular reservoirs and tissue sanctuary sites allow latent HIV-1 persistence and ongoing low-level virus replication, despite maximum virus suppression on HAART. This project aims to characterize the residual replication of HIV-1 in subjects on HAART, particularly in the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). A group of 20 HIV-1-infected patients on effective HAART will undergo GI endoscopy and GALT biopsies will be taken. A sample of venous blood will also be collected. These samples will be use to characterize the residual viral populations on effective HAART in three compartments, plasma, monocytes, and GALT. HIV-1 coreceptor usage and its evolution on HAART will be characterized in virus reservoirs. This project could provide further insights into the residual replication of HIV-1 in subjects receiving HAART.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.

Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.

The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.

The number of PLATELETS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.

Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
