stem cells

Oct 9, 2011

hello, are the stem cells, progenitor cells also infected with hiv? If yes than, all of tham are infected or just some of tham? Thank You!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

A great question with controversial answers. In limited published data they can be infected, but it is unlikely that all stem cells are infected.
