Immune correlates of HIV-associated cryptococcal meningitis

Mark W. Tenforde, James E. Scriven , Thomas S. Harrison, and Joseph N. Jarvis investigate the host immune response to cryptococcal meningitis (CM). CM is primarily caused by infection from the yeast, Cryptococcus neoformans. The effectivity of the host immune response determines whether or not the infected yeast will survive and result in a severe meningoencephalitis. They conclude with effects from immunomodulation and augmentation with IFN-γ.
