The immunological and virological impact of short-term treatment initiated during acute human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection was assessed prospectively in 20 subjects, 12 of whom initiated highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for 24 weeks and then terminated treatment. Treatment resulted in suppression of viremia, an increase in the(More)
BACKGROUND Homozygosity (Delta32/Delta32) for the 32 bp deletion in the chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) gene is associated with strong resistance against HIV infection. Heterozygosity is associated with protection of HIV-1 disease progression. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We genotyped a population of 737 HIV-positive adults and 463 healthy controls for the(More)
UNLABELLED Effector CD4 T cell responses have been shown to be critically involved in the containment and clearance of viral pathogens. However, their involvement in the pathogenesis of HIV infection is less clear, given their additional role as preferred viral targets. We previously demonstrated that the presence of HIV-specific CD4 T cell responses is(More)
The diversity of HIV-1 and human genetics complicates our ability to determine the impact of treatment during primary HIV-1 infection on disease outcome. Here, we show, in a small group infected with virtually identical HIV-1 strains and treated during primary HIV-1 infection, that patients expressing protective human leucocyte antigen alleles had lower(More)
Background: Homozygosity (D32/D32) for the 32 bp deletion in the chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) gene is associated with strong resistance against HIV infection. Heterozygosity is associated with protection of HIV-1 disease progression. Methodology/Principal Findings: We genotyped a population of 737 HIV-positive adults and 463 healthy controls for the CCR5D32(More)

BACKGROUND HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) are widely present among people living with HIV. Especially its milder forms, asymptomatic neurocognitive impairment (ANI) and mild neurocognitive disorder (MND), remain highly prevalent worldwide. Diagnosing these conditions is subject to a time and resource consuming neuropsychological assessment.(More)
