Abstract

The immune system is progressively affected during HIV infection. Several
mechanisms have been described regarding the HIV/AIDS immunopathogenesis,
some related to the humoral response and others to the cellular immune
response. The changes in the pattern of cytokine production by peripheral
blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) have been particularly studied in order to
better understand the immunoregulation during HIV disease progression. {P}
