abstract

  • HIV replication can now be effectively suppressed using antiretroviral combination regimens. The search continues, however, for ways to restore the immune response and eliminate reservoirs of latent infection. Interleukin-2 (IL-2) may augment the immune response in HIV-infected persons. This article discusses the rationale for using IL-2 in those with HIV disease and reviews key trials of IL-2 treatment regimens.
