Expression of cutaneous lymphocyte-associated antigen by CD8+ T cells specific for a skin-tropic virus
Virus-specific CD8+ T cells traffic to infected tissues to promote clearance of infection. We used herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) as a model system to investigate CD8+ T cell trafficking to the skin in humans. Using human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I tetramers, we observed that HSV-specific CD8+ T cells in the peripheral ...
Role for HLA class II molecules in HIV-1 suppression and cellular immunity following antiretroviral treatment
HIV-1–infected patients treated early with combination antiretrovirals respond favorably, but not all maintain viral suppression and improved HIV-specific Th function. To understand if genetic factors contribute to this variation, we prospectively evaluated over 18 months 21 early-treated patients stratified by alleles of ...
