Abstract:
We evaluated associations between levels of BDG and other biomarkers of inflammation in blood from 41 virologically suppressed persons with chronic HIV-infection. We found a significant correlation between BDG and neopterin levels (r=0.68), and trends to significance for correlations with other inflammation markers (tumor-necrosis-factor-α: r=0.30; interleukin-8: r=0.30; interleukin-6: r=0.28). In conclusion, BDG levels correlated with inflammation markers in a cohort of virologically suppressed individuals with chronic HIV infection. Future studies are needed to evaluate whether BDG may be a marker for morbidity in chronic HIV infection.
