Human Leukocyte Antigen Variants B*44 and B*57 Are Consistently Favorable during Two Distinct Phases of Primary HIV-1 Infection in Sub-Saharan Africans with Several Viral Subtypes

Abstract

As part of an ongoing study of early human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in sub-Saharan African countries, we have identified 134 seroconverters (SCs) with distinct acute phase (peak) and early chronic phase (set-point) viremia. SCs with class I human leukocyte antigen (HLA) variants B*44 and B*57 had much lower peak viral load (VL) than SCs without these variants (adjusted linear regression beta = –1.08 ± 0.26 log10 and –0.83 ± 0.27 log10, respectively, P
