HIV-1 Viral Tropism among Subtype C Viruses: Prevalence, Shifts with Antiretroviral Therapy and Breast Milk Compartmentalization
Principal Investigator: Nina Lin
To perform a detailed phenotypic and genotypic characterization of subtype C HIV-1 envelope. Using the unique sample set of paired blood and breast milk samples collected from women participating in the Mashi study and infected infant samples, the aim is to address critical questions regarding viral tropism, envelope diversity in MTCT and viral compartmentalization in breastmilk among HIV-1 subtype C-infected women from Botswana.
This study used samples collected from the Mashi study.
