CONCLUSIONS: This report demonstrates that the streamlined, algorithmic approach effectively identified HIV infections in this large cluster-randomized trial. Longitudinal HIV testing (all participants, all visits) and quality control testing provided useful data on the frequency of errors and provided more accurate data for HIV incidence estimates.

ConclusionA comparative high-resolution analysis of B*35Px or B*35Py alleles among healthy controls and HIV+ individuals showed an overrepresentation of HLA-B*35Px alleles in the healthy Indian gene pool (58%) and in the HIV+ cohort (70%). The most common B*35 subtype found among the HIV infected subjects was B*3503/55 (20%; Px group), followed by B*3501 (10%; Py group). Our study concludes that the Indian gene pool possesses higher frequency of B*35Px alleles.
