Dura Use the checklist of documents to make sure you include all other forms and documents you need. Fortunately, CIC has now clarified that, as police certificates are related to admissibility rather than eligibility, applicants will not be required to provide them when they submit their application to the CIO. Applicants should follow the new instruction guide to better prepare their applications. Newer Post Older Post Home.

Abstract HIV infection leads to a phenomenon of inflammaging, in which chronic inflammation induces an immune aged phenotype, even in individuals on combined antiretroviral therapy cART with undetectable viremia. We found a significant depletion of CD4 T cells, which was inversely correlated with the cell apoptosis in virus-suppressed HIV subjects compared to age-matched healthy subjects HS.
In addition, HIV CD4 T cells were prone to DNA damage that extended to chromosome ends—telomeres, leading to accelerated telomere erosion—a hallmark of cell senescence. Inflammaging is a major driver of age-related phenomena such as increased susceptibility to infections, reduced responses to vaccines, and increased incidence of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and neurodegeneration, all of which contribute to comorbidity and mortality in the elderly 1 — 3.
In the human immune system, CD4 T cells are long-lived, and thus are exposed to extensive genomic insults and replicative pressure, making them vulnerable to aging-associated abnormalities. Notably, the progressive loss of T cell proliferative capacity during the aging process directly correlates with the gradual shortening of telomeres—a hallmark of cell senescence.
Therefore, telomere length has been deemed as a biological clock controlling cell aging, survival, and function, whereas telomere attrition has been considered a faithful readout of inflammaging 1 — 3.
Growing evidence suggests that this aging phenotype is recapitulated in chronic viral infections, particularly in human immunodeficiency virus HIV infection, which is characterized by disrupted CD4 T cell homeostasis and accelerated premature immune aging 4.
Many of the alterations that affect the immune system in HIV-infected individuals are reminiscent of the progression of inflammaging in the elderly 5 , 6. Despite successful control of HIV replication by cART, residual inflammaging persists, leading to significant immune dysfunction. Even with reasonable CD4 T cell counts, these cART-controlled HIV patients often experience profound inflammaging, characterized by extremely short telomeres, low IL-2 production, poor cellular proliferation, and blunted vaccine responses 5 — This exposes the immune system to unique challenges that lead to T cell exhaustion and senescence, similar to that observed in the elderly.
These alterations accelerate the decline of CD4 T cell competence and thus define the overall immune dysfunction during HIV latency. Therefore, cART-controlled, latent HIV infection can be deemed as an excellent model of inflammaging in humans; as such, it is very important to elucidate the mechanisms underlying T cell senescence, telomere erosion, and inflammaging in latent HIV infection.
Indeed, we have previously shown that patients with chronic hepatitis C virus HCV infection exhibit premature T cell aging, evidenced by overexpressed aging markers and particularly, shortened telomeres—indicative of excessive proliferative turnover or inadequate telomeric maintenance 19 , Notably, in normal primary T cells, telomeres undergo shortening at a rate of 50— base pairs bp per cell division, and this predictable loss of telomeric DNA with cell replication allows telomeres to serve as a molecular clock that controls the replicative capacity of human T cells before entering cell cycle arrest, senescence, or apoptosis 21 , However, telomere loss can increase up to bp per cell division during viral infection, and in compensating for this, cell cycle arrest occurs when progressive telomere loss reaches a critical point—known as senescence a quiescent, non-replicative state with a decline in functional activities 21 , Thus far, the precise mechanisms controlling telomeric DNA damage, T cell homeostasis, inflammaging, and immune senescence in latent HIV infection remain unclear.
In this study, we investigated the molecular mechanisms that perturb T cell homeostasis and lead to inflammaging using a model of HIV-infected individuals on cART with undetectable viremia—the state in which the majority of HIV patients currently exist.
Specifically, we show that cART-controlled HIV infection is characterized by telomeric DNA damage that remains unrepaired due to ATM deficiency, leading to telomere attrition and CD4 T cell senescence or apoptosis, providing a novel mechanism controling T cell homeostasis and premature immune aging.
This contraction of total CD4 T cells, particularly the TCM subset, is consistent with published reports 24 , 25 and indicates an alteration of T cell repertoire following cell activation, exhaustion, senescence, and apoptosis in cART-controlled, latent HIV infection.

Tuesday, August 4, at 5: This had the potential for causing considerable delays since documents such as police certificates could take months to obtain. If you are concerned about being inadmissible on medical grounds or you or any of your family members have a medical condition that you think could be an obstacle. Yeah, that is how positive we are because we needed this one chance for little R.
