Abstract

The mucosa associated lymphoid tissue regulates and
coordinates immune responses against mucosal pathogens. Mucosal
tissues are the major targets exposed to HIV during transmission.
In this paper we describe in vitro models of HIV mucosal
infection using human explants to investigate target cells within
this tissue.

Keywords
mucosal immunology - HIV - immunity to HIV - mucosa associated lymphoid tissue
