Long-term survivors in Nairobi: complete HIV-1 RNA sequences and immunogenetic associations
To investigate African long-term survivors (LTSs) infected with non-subtype B human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), we obtained full-length HIV-1 RNA sequences and immunogenetic profiles from 6 untreated women ...
HIV-1 Env-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocyte responses in exposed, uninfected Kenyan sex workers: a prospective analysis.
(University of Nairobi, 2004-10-21)
The prospective significance of HIV-specific cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) responses in highly exposed, persistently seronegative populations is unknown. In 1996-1997 we screened for CTL responses against HIV clade B Env ...
Construction of an infectious HIV type 1 molecular clone from an African patient with a subtype D/C Recombinant Virus.
The majority of HIV-1 infections worldwide occur in Africa, where subtype B viruses are rare and intersubtype recombinants are common. Pathogenesis and vaccine studies need to focus on viruses derived from African patients, ...
Recombination following superinfection by HIV-1.
(University of nairobi, 2004)
Background: There is increasing recognition of recombinant HIV-1 strains globally, but it has been unclear whether recombination results from superinfection during untreated, chronic infection. Objective: To search for ...
