Abstract

Epithelial and submucosal mesenchymal (SM) cells from human small intestine and colon could be directly infected by several strains of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Macrophage-derived virus strains were more potent than the HTLVIIIB prototype strain. Persistent release of virus over several months implies that the human gastrointestinal tract may serve as a site for primary infection and as a reservoir for the virus. Furthermore, HIV infection of SM cells may be an in vitro model of Kaposi's sarcoma.
