Abstract: Background: Minocycline is a tetracycline antibiotic that has been proposed as a potential conjunctive therapy for HIV-1
associated cognitive disorders. Precise mechanism(s) of minocycline’s functions are not well defined.
Methods: Fourteen rhesus macaques were SIV infected and neuronal metabolites measured by proton magnetic resonance
spectroscopy (1H MRS). Seven received minocycline (4 mg/kg) daily starting at day 28 post-infection (pi). Monocyte
expansion and activation were assessed by flow cytometry, cell traffic to lymph nodes, CD16 regulation, viral replication,
and cytokine production were studied.
Results: Minocycline treatment decreased plasma virus and pro-inflammatory CD14+CD16+ and CD14loCD16+ monocytes,
and reduced their expression of CD11b, CD163, CD64, CCR2 and HLA-DR. There was reduced recruitment of monocyte/
macrophages and productively infected cells in axillary lymph nodes. There was an inverse correlation between brain NAA/
Cr (neuronal injury) and circulating CD14+CD16+ and CD14loCD16+ monocytes. Minocycline treatment in vitro reduced SIV
replication CD16 expression on activated CD14+CD16+ monocytes, and IL-6 production by monocytes following LPS
Conclusion: Neuroprotective effects of minocycline are due in part to reduction of activated monocytes, monocyte traffic.
Mechanisms for these effects include CD16 regulation, reduced viral replication, and inhibited immune activation.
