Natural tick transmission of infection by Borrelia burgdorferi induces a very different serum antibody response than needle inoculation of spirochetes. We present data, obtained by using the mouse model, that show that the OspA response was barely detectable, whereas all animals developed significant anti-P39 titers after exposure to B. burgdorferi-infected(More)
BACKGROUND Several countries have recently recommended the expansion of anti-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody testing, including self-testing with rapid tests using oral fluid (OF). Several tests have been proposed for at-home use, but their diagnostic accuracy has not been fully evaluated. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of 5 rapid(More)
BACKGROUND Among HIV-1 infected patients who achieved virologic suppression, the use of atazanavir without pharmacologic boosting is debated. We evaluated the efficacy and tolerance of maintenance therapy with unboosted atazanavir in clinical practice. METHODS AND RESULTS This multicenter retrospective cohort study evaluated the efficacy of switching(More)
Data regarding the efficacy of Rapid HIV tests (RHTs) in detecting non-B subtype HIV-1 are limited. We evaluated the sensitivity of the INSTI® test for the detection of HIV-1 antibodies for the diagnosis of HIV-1 non-B subtypes and recombinant variants. We identified adults with HIV-1 infection due to non-B subtypes and recombinant variants. The(More)
