Kirkpatrick AR, Unsal AB, Blankson JN, Moore RD, Quinn TC, Hadigan C, Laeyendecker O. Weak HIV Antibody Responses in Perinatally Infected Young Adults: Weak HIV Antibody Responses in Perinatally Infected Adults. Pediatr Infect Dis J. 2017, 36: 1064-1066. PMC5638694
We compared the antibody response to HIV using 2 serologic cross-sectional incidence assays in adults with perinatally acquired HIV, to elite controllers and individuals exposed to antiretroviral therapy who were all infected as adults. Low antibody responses were seen more frequently in adults with perinatally acquired HIV, both overall and when stratified by viral suppression status.
