Virological markers of HIV disease progression and regression

A wide variety of virological markers for HIV disease and progression are available through this Core.

  • HIV-1/2 serological diagnosis (including de-tuned HIV-1 EIA)
  • HIV-1 quantitative and qualitative microculture
  • HIV-1 RNA quantification (RT-PCR and real-time PCR)
  • HIV-1 p24 antigen quantification
  • HIV-1 total viral DNA and unintegrated 2-LTR episomal DNA quantification by real-time PCR
  • HIV-1 phenotyping (MT-2 and drug susceptibility)
  • Access to HIV-1 sequencing
  • Access to other routine clinical virological assays 
  • Oral tissue model for evaluating microbicides
