Abstract zur Publikation: Epidemiologically linked transmission of HIV-1 illustrates the impact of host genetics on virological outcome

Streeck H, Jessen H, Kücherer C et al. (2009): Epidemiologically linked transmission of HIV-1 illustrates the impact of host genetics on virological outcome.
AIDS 23 (2): 259-262.

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 viral loads following treatment discontinuation. These data suggest that genetic factors play an important role in the outcome of HIV-1 infection despite early therapy.
