Abstract

HIV infection is associated with immune activation, which in turn stimulates HIV replication. Certain other co-infections cause immune activation and may contribute to an increased viral load. The impact of co-infections by microorganisms such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis can be important for patient survival, particularly those at high risk of exposure to infection and with poor access to medical care.
