monocytes, dendritic cells and HIV
Mar 15, 2003
I understand immune cells like monocytes and dendritic cells may either get infected or may neutralize/"kill" an HIV virion. What decides which of the two shall transpire?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Probably the number of supportive immune cells in the microenvironment and how activated the immune system is at the time.
