Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
high risk
individuals known to be or at high risk for HIV-infection
Procedure: blood draw

Participants will have from 10 to 60 ml blood drawn for one or all of the following tests:

  • T cell subset enumeration
  • Serologic reactivity with HIV antigens
  • Viral load assays by bDNA, PCR, or RT-PCR
  • Routine Laboratory assessments (chemistries, liver function tests, hepatitis serology, RPR)
  • HIV-1 Resistance Testing
diagnosed
diagnosed with HIV infection
Procedure: blood draw

Participants will have from 10 to 60 ml blood drawn for one or all of the following tests:

  • T cell subset enumeration
  • Serologic reactivity with HIV antigens
  • Viral load assays by bDNA, PCR, or RT-PCR
  • Routine Laboratory assessments (chemistries, liver function tests, hepatitis serology, RPR)
  • HIV-1 Resistance Testing

Detailed Description:

This phlebotomy protocol permits the collection of blood from individuals known to be at high risk for HIV-infection or who have been recently infected with HIV.

Participants will have from 10 to 60 ml (approximately 1 to 4 tablespoons) of blood drawn for one or all of the following tests:

  • T cell subset enumeration
  • Serologic reactivity with HIV antigens
  • Viral load assays by bDNA, PCR, or RT-PCR
  • Routine Laboratory assessments (chemistries, liver function tests, hepatitis serology, RPR)
  • HIV-1 Resistance Testing

These data are used for diagnostic, prognostic and management decisions as outlined by current HIV-1 Treatment Guidelines
