Immortalized human oral epithelial cell line (iOECHHN) derived from a HIV+ (HAART naïve) subject.
The oral epithelium is the most abudant structural tissue lining the oral mucosa, and is an important factor in fighting infectious microorganisms. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus that causes the acquired immunodeficienty syndrome (AIDS). Due to the availability of highly active-retroviral therapy (HAART), HIV+ infected patients are living longer. HIV infected subjects on HAART are suspectible to comorboid microbial infections in the oral cavity.
