- Systemic immune activation in HIV infection is associated with decreased MDC responsiveness to TLR ligand and inability to activate naive CD4 T-cellsNicole L Yonkers
Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Pathology, Case Western Reserve University Center for AIDS Research, University Hospitals, Cleveland Ohio, United States of America
PLoS ONE 6:e23884. 2011..Because TLR responsiveness may affect a host's response to virus, we examined TLR ligand induced Myeloid and Plasmacytoid DC (MDC and PDC) activation of naïve T-cells in HIV+ subjects...

J Infect Dis 206:969-73. 2012..IL28B genotype was associated with therapy response but not sCD14 or CD16(+)56(-) NK frequency. Markers of innate immune activation predict poor host response to IFN-α-based HCV therapy during HCV-HIV coinfection...
