Limiting HIV establishment and maintenance by preserving intestinal immunity
Source: NIH/NIAID R01AI129745
In this project, we will explore the therapeutic potential of a combined interleukin (IL)-21 and anti-α4β7 Ab intervention to reduce gut damage and immune activation, improve antiviral responses, and limit the size of the reservoir in ART-treated, SIV-infected rhesus macaques.
The combinatorial effects of opiates and the emerging promoter-variant strains of HIV-1 subtype C on HIV neuropathogensis and latency
MPI: Buch S/Byrareddy S/Fox H.
In this proposal, we plan to investigate the involvement of the combinatorial effects of opiates and the emerging promoter-variant strains of HIV-1 subtype C on HIV neuropathogenesis and latency and to test this hypothesis in a primate model.
Host-Directed Therapy to Augment anti-M tuberculosis in Responses in the Setting of HIV Co-infection and to Sterilize the Tuberculoma
