There was a decrease in the levels of lymphocyte activation; however, levels of T cell activation remained significantly elevated, and with this persistent lymphocyte activation there continued to be continued loss of CD4 T cells with a functional deficit of those remaining and hence disease progression [13-14, 18-20].
In our study, RANTES levels were observed to be higher in control groups than the specimens stimulated by MRSA and MSSA after 24 h; the reason why the levels increased in the specimens stimulated by MRSA and MSSA after 48 h may probably be explained by the fact that the increase was more clear after 48 h depending on lymphocyte activation after the stimulation by microorganisms and the late expression of RANTES following the transient increase in RANTES in the first 24 h.
