Abstract

Immune reconstitution during antiretroviral therapy has recently been shown to depend upon multiple factors at work in T cell homeostasis, amongst which the reduction of thymus dysfunction and of immune hyperactivation are instrumental. The optimism that has been raised by the restoration of hosts' defenses against opportunistic pathogens is, however, balanced by the poor immunity restored against HIV; thus, innovative immune interventions are required.
