The role of HIV and monocytes/macrophages in adipose tissue biology.
J Acquir Immune Defic Syndr 65(2):151-9.
Abstract : Circulating HIV-infected and proinflammatory CD14CD16 monocyte subsets contribute to the pathogenesis of HIV-associated lipoatrophy. Among HIV-infected individuals, macrophages, rather than adipocytes, are the primary source of low-grade inflammation in subcutaneous adipose tissue. HIV infection modifies these macrophages to a more proinflammatory phenotype, and these changes are not substantially mitigated by the use of ART.
