Comparison of LCx with Other Current Viral Load Assays for Detecting and Quantifying Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 RNA in Patients Infected with the Circulating Recombinant Form A/G (CRF02)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


LCx was compared to other assays in measuring human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) CRF02 viremia. LCx showed significant but low correlation with the other methods. Values of 10 cp/ml were observed in 29.6% of specimens with LCx and in only 14.8% with bDNA and PCR, suggesting suboptimal performance of LCx with CRF02.
