In HIV-infected patients with ARS deep infringements of the immune status were revealed, especially in the T-link of immunity and its subpopulations, and also frustration of humoral immunity link, suppression of proinflammatory cytokine IL-10 and increase of proinflammatory IFN-alpha. Under treatment no significant changes were found in the immune status of patients. It is possible to ascertain only positive changes in maintenance of IL-10 and parallel decrease in IFN-alpha in dynamics of treatment.
