Abstract

Plasma levels of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNFα) and the ability of plasmas to induce HIV expression in chronically infected cell lines were measured in samples from adults, cord blood, and neonates from Zaire and North America. Plasma levels of TNFα were higher in Zairian neonates born to HIV-negative and -positive mothers than in uninfected Zairian adults (612 vs. 128 vs. 8 pg/mL, P
