A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

OBJECTIVE: Patients coinfected with HIV and Mycobacterium tuberculosis frequently experience a paradoxical worsening of tuberculosis (TB) symptoms early after the initiation of combination antiretroviral therapy (cART). This immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (TB-IRIS) can lead to significant morbidity and needs to be distinguished from TB recurrence due to ineffective treatment. We investigated whether plasma biomarkers could predict the occurrence of TB-IRIS.

DESIGN: ANRS 129 BKVIR is a single-arm multicentre trial that enrolled 69 cART-naïve HIV-1-infected patients treated for TB. The patients received once-daily tenofovir/emtricitabine/efavirenz first-line regimen. TB-IRIS cases (IRIS+) were validated by an Event Review Committee.

METHODS: A panel of 26 plasma biomarkers was monitored longitudinally for 24 weeks from cART initiation onward, using multiplexed assays and high-sensitivity ELISA. Statistical analyses of biomarkers were adjusted for test multiplicity.

RESULTS: One-third of patients (n=23) experienced TB-IRIS. The inflammatory cytokines and chemokines interleukin (IL)-6, IL-8, interferon-gamma-induced protein 10 (IP-10), and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) showed increased plasma levels at week 4 in IRIS-positive (IRIS+) patients (P<0.05 for each biomarker). The soluble IL-2 receptor sCD25, which is released upon CD4 T-cell activation, was significantly increased at week 0 in IRIS+ patients (P<0.05), and remained elevated throughout follow-up. IL-7, a key homeostatic cytokine for CD4 T-cells, showed a trend for higher values in the TB-IRIS group. Both sCD25 and IL-7 baseline levels were independently associated with a shorter time to TB-IRIS occurrence (P=0.005 and P=0.02, respectively).

CONCLUSION: These findings support a role for CD4 T-cell activation prior to massive inflammation in the development of TB-IRIS.
