Immune restoration in HIV-infected patients has been the object of Adrianna Weinberg, MD studies for several years. As such, I established virologic correlates of immune reconstitution in children and adults, and identified immune correlates of protection against CMV infection in HIV-infected patients on HAART. I recently described an inhibitory mechanism of cellular immunity operative in HIV-infected patients, but not in healthy individuals. This is the current object of more in-depth studies at sub-cellular level. I developed several lines of investigation of CMV-specific immunity in transplant patients, including the following: impact of CMV infection on graft rejection;immune restoration in bone marrow transplant recipients and immune correlates of protection against CMV infections; use of dendritic cells for establishment of CMV-specific immunity in stem cell and cord blood transplant recipients.
