Primary HIV infection.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A study is underway at the University of Washington to determine factors predominant in the progression of HIV to AIDS. Information on this subject has been limited because few studies targeted people shortly after seroconversion. Seroconversion to HIV usually occurs 10 to 14 days after exposure, and symptoms are frequently mistaken for mononucleosis. CD4 changes, HIV viral load levels, and potential drug therapy (with its associated side effects) are discussed in relation to primary HIV infections.
