(GALT) and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from treated HIV-1-positive patients before (T0, white colour) and after 6 months (T6, grey colour) of probiotics supplementation (n = 10).

Lymphomas are commonly found in the ileum, where the greatest concentration of gut-associated lymphoid tissue
is present, and they may be primary or part of systemic disease (5).
Findings from a study of colonic biopsies of HIV-infected individuals initiating combination antiretroviral therapy at the time of acute infection showed that early initiation of therapy did not reverse immunological abnormalities in gut-associated lymphoid tissue
The major components of the lymphatic system include the thymus (a gland in which certain immune functions are carried out); the spleen (which filters abnormal cells from the blood); bone marrow (the tissue in bone cavities that produces red and white blood cells); and so-called gut-associated lymphoid tissue
(GALT), which lines the surface of various areas of a cat's body and prevents their exposure to infectious agents.
