Group/Cohort
Immune Controllers
Patients with very low or undetectable levels of viremia without treatment
Acute Infection
Early infection, i.e. within 2 weeks of infection



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. HIV progression from acute infection to viral suppression [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Outcomes will depend on scientists who use the samples for further study

  2. HIV progression and control by elite and viremic suppressors [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Outcomes will depend on scientists who use the samples for study


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
PBMCs and Plasma
