ABSTRACT
Studies the increasing sensitivity of regulated on activation, normally T cell-expressed and secreted (RANTES) neutralization of CC chemokine receptor5-using, non-synctium-inducing virus variants in the course of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 infection. Basis for variable disease progression in individuals; Decline in sensitivity during the course of infection; Role of RANTES neutralization in AIDS pathogenesis.
