Satellite Session : Role of mucosa and myeloid cells in HIV pathogenesis
23 July 2017, Palais des Congrès, 14:45 – 16:45
Genital and rectal mucosa are the primary site of entry and defense upon exposure to HIV. How the mucosa environment, including immune cells, influences HIV acquisition and persistence is of great importance. Myeloid cells are the first targets of infection and vehicles of viral dissemination, but they also orchestrate the primary intrinsic, innate and adaptive responses. Much still needs to be understood about this dual role.
