Abstract

Background: The emerging relationship between microRNAs (miRNA) and viral-control is a topic of interest in the field of HIV. Host-genome might play an important role in the control of viremia. The aim of this study was to assess the specific miRNA profile that could contribute to the control of HIV replication in Elite Controllers. Materials and methods: The expression level of miRNAs was evaluated in 6 group patients, Elite Controller (EC), HIV, HBV, HCV, HIV-HBV-HIV-HCV, and healthy controls using real-time PCR assays. Also, liver enzymes (ALT and AST) and CD4 T cell count was assessed. Results: After adequate normalization, expression level of miRNAs was determined. The expression level of miR-146 in HIV/HCV co-infected patients was the highest in all groups. The miRNAs expression profile was significantly different in patient groups compared to control and EC. Some miRNA was significantly correlated with viral load and CD4 T cell count. Conclusions: The involvement of the mentioned miRNAs and correlation of these with viral and cellular parameters can justify the clinical outcome of all patient groups. The differentially expressed miRNA profile in patients suggests that miRNAs can be serve as biomarkers for risk of disease progression and differentiation of infections. Moreover, determining the profiles of miRNAs due to involvement of these in the pathogenesis of infection and manipulating these miRNAs could lead to opening a new gate to infection control. © 2020
