Abstract

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is the leading cause of death among men and women ages 15-44 in the United States. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection can be viewed as a chronic disease whose clinical course is dependent, in part, on an infected individual's ability to maintain optimal cell-mediated immunological control over extant and encountered pathogens. There is mounting evidence linking psychosocial stressors with HIV infection and AIDS. This article reviews this evidence and the fact that stressful events, stress responses and distress states have been associated with impairments of the immune system. Such immune impairments could potentially exacerbate the immunological abnormalities and health consequences observed among HIV-infected individuals. © 2007
