Abstract

The gut associated lymphoid tissue is responsible for
specific responses to intestinal antigens. During HIV infection,
mucosal immune deficiency may account for the gastrointestinal
infections. In this review we describe the humoral and cellular
mucosal immune responses in normal and HIV-infected subjects.

Keywords
gastrointestinal tract - HIV - mucosal immunology - immunity to HIV
