HIV and innate immune activation - impact on viral control and immunopathology. HIV infection results in constitutive activation of the innate immune system due to PAMPs derived from HIV, translocated bacteria, or opportunistic pathogens. This stimulates antiviral activities, but also potentially contributes to chronic immune activation. For a more detailed discussion, see text.
