    Department of Biology, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY 40506, USA
    J Gen Virol 91:2513-23. 2010
    ..This study indicates that hunter viruses may halt the progression of the HIV infection by restoring and sustaining high CD4(+) T-cell levels...

    Department of Biology, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 6:e23458. 2011
    ..To complement our knowledge of the HIV-malaria co-infection, the objective of this work was to assess the relationship between malaria and HIV prevalence in the western region of sub-Saharan Africa...

    Theor Biol Med Model 9:9. 2012
    ..Then, we hypothesized that viral factors contribute to the variation of the effect of co-infection and introduce variation among individuals...

    Diego F Cuadros
    Department of Biology, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA
    BMC Infect Dis 11:216. 2011
    ..Heterosexual HIV transmission has been estimated to have a very low probability; but effects of cofactors that vary in space and time may substantially alter this pattern...
