The course of HIV-1 infections is variable, with some individuals remaining asymptomatic, up to 10 years after initial exposure (Ho et al, 1987). In contrast, other individuals rapidly progress to death within days or weeks of their diagnosis. Because there are few effective treatment modalities (Fischl et al, 1987; Crumpacker et al, 1987) and a vaccine has not yet been developed, there is increased emphasis upon defining those factors contributing to disease progression, in search of means of alter/halt this progression.
