Abstract

The pathophysiologic basis for the exuberant intracellular growth of Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) in AIDS patients is unclear but may relate to altered expression of modulatory cytokines. Interleukin (IL)-1, IL-6, and TNF-α expression by monocytes from AIDS patients and healthy subjects (HS) stimulated with isogeneic MAC strains (SmT, smooth- transparent, virulent; SmD, smooth-domed, avirulent) was examined. Spontaneous cytokine production was not observed in patients with AIDS. MAC strains induced less IL-1α and IL-1β release in AIDS patients than HS (P <0.05). The ratio of cell-associated to supernatant IL-1α also was increased in AIDS patients (P = 0.03). IL-1β mRNA expression paralleled protein release in either group of subjects. In both HS and AIDS patients, stimulation with Stud induced more IL- 1 and TNF-α release by monocytes compared to SmT. In AIDS patients, Stud also induced greater IL-6 release than SmT (P <0.01). Alterations in monocyte expression and compartmentalization of the regulatory cytokines IL-1 and IL-6 may enhance bacterial replication and contribute to the pathogenesis of MAC infection in AIDS.
