Abstract

Twenty patients with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection for >7 years, no HIV-1-related symptoms, no treatment, and CD4+ cell counts >500/μL were included in a prospective study in 1993. Four years later, 12 patients had progressed (SPs), while 8 had not (long-term nonprogressors [LTNPs]). At inclusion, HIV-1 RNA, but not DNA, levels were higher in SPs. During follow-up, a consistent increase in HIV-1 RNA was seen in only 1 LTNP. In 2 LTNPs, plasma viremia was persistently undetectable or
