Abstract Macrophages play important roles during HIV-infection, reflected by changes in macrophage-activation biomarker sCD163. Here, we present data on the novel macrophage-activation biomarker soluble mannose receptor/CD206 (sMR/sCD206) in HIV-infection. We investigated sCD206 blood levels at baseline and follow-up with/without ART, in 212 patients with HIV-1, HIV-2, or dual infection. At baseline, there was no difference in sCD206 level between HIV-types, and sCD206 was unchanged at follow-up without ART. However, contrary to sCD163, sCD206 levels decreased significantly for both HIV-1 and HIV-2, but not for HIV-1/2 patients, during ART. Further investigations are needed to establish sCD206 as biomarker in HIV-infection. Macrophage, HIV, biomarker, sCD206, sMR, sCD163, HIV-1, HIV-2, AIDS, Guinea-Bissau © The Author(s) 2018.
