Comparison of the Generic HIV Viral Load® assay with the Amplicor™ HIV-1 Monitor v1.5 and Nuclisens HIV-1 EasyQ® v1.2 techniques for plasma HIV-1 RNA quantitation of non-B subtypes: the Kesho Bora preparatory study Ghent University
Multicenter evaluation of the cobas® HIV-1 quantitative nucleic acid test for use on the cobas® 4800 system for the quantification of HIV-1 plasma viral load Vrije Universiteit Brussel
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Measurement of HIV-1 viral load (VL) is necessary to monitor treatment efficacy in patients receiving antiretroviral therapy. We evaluated the performance of the cobas® HIV-1 quantitative nucleic acid test for use on the cobas® 4800 system ("cobas 4800 HIV-1").
METHODS: Limit of detection, linearity, accuracy, precision, and specificity of cobas 4800 HIV-1, COBAS® AmpliPrep/COBAS® Taqman® HIV-1 version 2.0 ...

Quantification of total HIV-1 DNA in buffy coat cells, feasibility and potential added value for clinical follow-up of HIV-1 infected patients on ART Ghent University
Single cell analysis of lymph node tissue from HIV-1 infected patients reveals that the majority of CD4+ T-cells contain one HIV-1 DNA molecule KU Leuven
Increased Serpin A5 levels in the cervicovaginal fluid of HIV-1 exposed seronegatives suggest that a subtle balance between serine proteases and their inhibitors may determine susceptibility to HIV-1 infection Institute of Tropical Medicine University of Antwerp
HIV-exposed seronegative individuals (HESNs) are persons who remain seronegative despite repeated exposure to HIV, suggesting an in vivo resistance mechanism to HIV. Elucidation of endogenous factors responsible for this phenomenon may aid in the development of new classes of microbicides and therapeutics. We compared cervicovaginal protein abundance profiles between high-risk HESN and two control groups: low-risk HESN and HIV-positives. Four ...
