|Title:||Thymic Function Failure Is Associated With Human Immunodeficiency Virus Disease Progression.|
CD4 Lymphocyte Count
|Citation:||Clin. Infect. Dis..2017 05;(64)9:1191-1197|
|Abstract:||Thymic function has been mainly analyzed with surrogate peripheral markers affected by peripheral T-cell expansion, making it difficult to assess the role of thymic failure in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease progression. The assay of signal-joint/DβJβ T-cell rearrangement excision circles (sj/β-TREC ratio) overcomes this limitation but has only been assayed in small cohorts. Thus, the aim of this study was to determine the role of thymic function, measured by the sj/β-TREC ratio, on CD4 T-cell maintenance in prospective HIV cohorts that include patients with a wide age range and different immunological phenotypes.|
