INTRODUCTION In HIV-positive individuals, complex multifactorial mechanisms control viral infection. In addition to viral and immunological factors, the host genetic background also plays an important role. Our objective was to evaluate how various genetic factors associated with delayed AIDS onset. METHODS Thirty HIV+ long-term nonprogressors (LTNPs) and 30 known progressors were analyzed. Host genes were analyzed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells DNA: CCR5 and HLA were polymerase chain… CONTINUE READING
