Our previous report on the massive loss of sulfur in HIV-infected subjects and the present demonstration of the immunoreconstituting effect of cysteine supplementation indicate that the HIV-induced cysteine depletion is a novel mechanism by which a virus destroys the immune defense of the host and escapes immune elimination.
The unique hypothesis tested in this study is that with a novel antiretroviral therapy combination complemented by entry and integrase inhibitors, the induction of viral replication from quiescent CD4+ T cells can be contained by the complementary HIV inhibitors while remaining sufficient to expose infected cells to immune elimination, eventually contributing to viral reservoir reduction and potential eradication.
We previously reported that LDI-100 functions by down-regulating the bcl-2 oncogene and inducing apoptosis, whereby malignant cells lose their characteristics of transformation and become susceptible to immune elimination.
