    However, in the case of HIV, the host immune system is never able to completely control and eradicate the infection. In fact, in an impressive example of subversion of the immune system, HIV utilizes the activated milieu of lymphoid tissue toward its own replicative advantage. Close contact between immune effector cells as well as high levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines are characteristic of the lymphoid tissue microenvironment; these conditions favor viral replication in several ways. Activated CD4ϩ T lymphocytes migrating through lymphoid tissue serve as ideal targets for de novo infection with HIV (142–146).

    A beneficial role for HIV-specific CTL is also suggested by their presence in the peripheral blood of individuals who are frequently exposed to HIV yet remain uninfected (217,218) and the depletion of HIV-specific CTL from lymph nodes of patients with advanced HIV disease (219). Studies in nonhuman primates have demonstrated that monkeys subjected to CD8ϩ Tcell depletion manifest diminished control of plasma viremia during primary SIV infection (220); in addition, CD8ϩ T-cell depletion during the chronic phase of SIV infection leads to a prompt and profound increase in levels of viral replication (220–222).
