    • Genital tract inflammation during early HIV-infection predicts higher plasma viral load set point in women. 

      Roberts, Lindi.; Passmore, Jo-Ann.; Mlisana, Koleka Patience.; Williamson, Carolyn.; Little, Francesca.; Bebell, Lisa M.; Walzl, Gerhard.; Abrahams, Melissa-Rose.; Woodman, Zenda.; Abdool Karim, Quarraisha.; Abdool Karim, Salim Safurdeen. (Oxford University Press., 2011)
      Background. The biggest challenge in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) prevention in Africa is the high HIV-1 burden in young women. In macaques, proinflammatory cytokine production in the genital tract is necessary ...
    • Plasma cytokine levels during acute HIV-1 infection predict HIV disease progression. 

      Roberts, Lindi.; Williamson, Carolyn.; Little, Francesca.; Bebell, Lisa M.; Mlisana, Koleka Patience.; Burgers, Wendy A.; Passmore, Jo-Ann.; Van Loggerenberg, Francois.; Walzl, Gerhard.; Djoba Siawaya, Joel F.; Abdool Karim, Salim Safurdeen.; Abdool Karim, Quarraisha. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins., 2010)
      Background: Both T-cell activation during early HIV-1 infection and soluble markers of immune activation during chronic infection are predictive of HIV disease progression. Although the acute phase of HIV infection is ...
    • Relationship between levels of inflammatory cytokines in the genital tract and CD4+ cell counts in women with acute HIV-1 infection. 

      Bebell, Lisa M.; Passmore, Jo-Ann.; Williamson, Carolyn.; Mlisana, Koleka Patience.; Iriogbe, Itua.; Van Loggerenberg, Francois.; Abdool Karim, Quarraisha.; Abdool Karim, Salim Safurdeen. (The Infectious Diseases Society of America., 2008)
      Inflammatory responses at mucosal surfaces after human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) transmission may influence disease outcome.We evaluated levels of interleukin (IL)–1B , IL-6, tumor necrosis factor– a, IL-8, ...
