Abstract

This hypothesis suggests that repeated viral infections disrupt the biosynthesis of P.G.E. 1 and nullify a major system by which t lymphocytes are regulated. It is hypothesized that a breakdown of P.G.E. 1 synthesis is responsible for the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and the frequently associated Kaposi's sarcoma. A means of restoring P.G.E. 1 synthesis and reversing the immunodeficiency is proposed.
