Abstract

We assessed HIV antibody prevalence in children with perinatally-acquired HIV (PaHIV) in England. 18%(10/55) of those starting combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) <6 months of age were seronegative, and had lower viral load at diagnosis and cART start, and fewer viral rebounds, than 45/55 seropositives. Implications for patient selection for HIV cure research, and interpretation of routine antibody testing, are discussed.
