Abstract

The complex interactions between host immunity and infectious diseases have been documented in literature and they play a role in virus infection. Many clinical-experimental reports have stressed the importance of homeostasis of cell membranes and of the 'cell healthy indicators', namely polyunsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants in HIV infection. Today's increased incidence of heterosexual transmission of HIV has showed a strict correlation between HIV and HPV infection. According to some studies, positive HPV subjects have 40-200 times a greater risk of becoming HIV- positive. We have evaluated in 40 women with HPV infection the plasma levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids of phospholipids and vitamin E, determined by GC-MS methods, and the erythrocyte glutathione peroxidase activity (GHS-Px) by spectrophotometric techniques. The alteration of these parameters were correlated with the progression of the infection, i.e. the appearance of dysplastic or neoplastic pathologies on the uterine cervix. The differences were statistically significant (p
