Immune imbalance and activation are associated with lower lung function in youth with perinatally acquired HIV. The Journal of allergy and clinical immunology. 2020 May 1; 145(5):1473-1476.
High CD8 T-cells and low CD4/CD8 are associated with lower lung function among youth living with perinatally-acquired HIV, despite antiretroviral therapy and CD4 preservation/reconstitution. Understanding these underlying mechanisms is critical to mitigate lung function impairment.
