Evaluation of Genetic Markers as Explanations for the Observed Differences in Disease Progression in HIV+ Youth
Evaluation of HIV-Specific CD8+ T-Cell Responses and Escape Mutations as Explanations for the Observed Differences in Disease Progression Conferred by HLA Class I Alleles

This protocol is a study of HIV+ young people who were identified as having certain HIV-1 specific T-cell responses and genetic markers while previously enrolled in the 5-year longitudinal adolescent study, "REACH." Blood samples will be collected, a medical and medication history and physical examination will be performed every 6 months for a total of 2 years.

Numerous studies have demonstrated an association between HLA class I genotypes with differing progression to AIDS in individuals who are followed after being off antiretroviral therapy. These studies do not always associate the same HLA class I alleles with the risks of HIV-1 disease progression; however they consistently demonstrated that HLA-B*35 and B*53 portend a bad outcome compared to the better outcome observed in HLA-B*27 and B*57 carriers. Despite this information, very little data exists to explain the mechanism of this association.

This longitudinal study will look at the HIV-1 specific CD8+ T-cell responses and the dominant HIV-1 genotype among individuals identified as HLA-B*27, B*35, B*53 and B*57 positive through studies done in collaboration with the REACH project.

Observational
Observational Model: Cohort
Not Provided
Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Description:

Biomedical HIV-1 related data and samples are available for the time the subjects were enrolled in REACH. HIV-1 genotyping will certainly be possible from these retrospective samples and the stored PBMCs will be evaluated for usefulness in the HIV-1 specific assays. Prospectively, samples will be collected every six months over a two-year period to evaluate both HIV-1 specific CD8+ T cell responses and the dominant HIV-1 genotype longitudinally.

Non-Probability Sample

Subjects who were identified as HLA Class I HLA-B*27, B*35, B*53, and/or B*57 positive from the REACH study will be contacted for their interest in participating in this study. Only former REACH sites in the ATN will be eligible to enroll subjects into this study.
