Abstract

In the present paper we review studies performed on HIV-infected patients cohorts in order to understand AIDS disease development. The interplay between diverse factors such as the HIV envelope proteins, cellular co-receptors, the immune response with chemokines and cytokines production define the viral tropism, cytopathicity and progression of HIV disease. We present the trends of the research particularly in the domain concerning host genetics. In this context, we describe the GRIV cohort of fast and slow/non-progressors, and its use for understanding basic features of the yet unknown HIV pathogenesis mechanisms.
