The level of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication in patients reflects a balance between stimulatory and inhibitory host factors (particularly endogenous cytokines). New information concerning the cellular co-receptors for HIV and the cellular tropism of different strains of virus will advance our understanding of HIV-induced pathogenesis and suggests new therapeutic and preventive strategies.
