Research Correlation

Jun 10, 2007

Dr. Holodniy, I'm not sure you're the correct person to whom to direct my question, but I can't find a category where my question really fits. Is there any research which indicates a correlation between disease progression and a) length of time from HIV infection to a detectable antibody level or b) intensity of acute infection? Thanks!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Only for part b. In the very early natural history literature, there is a suggestion that those who had more significant symptoms progressed more quickly. However, in the modern era with effective HIV treatment there is unlikely to be a significant correlation.
