Antioxidants in human AIDS

Jeongmin Lee, Ronald R. Watson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 infection results in the progressive impairment of immune response leading to the development of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Among the mechanisms contributing to this progression, oxidative stress induced by the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) during activation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and macrophages may play a critical role. 1.
