A new classification for HIV-1

Article metrics

Abstract

The phenotype of HIV-1 isolates is defined by the cells in which they replicate in vitro, but these phenotypes can change in vivo with profound implications for viral transmission, pathogenesis and disease progression. Here we propose a new classification system based on co-receptor use, providing a more accurate description of viral phenotype than the present imprecise and often misleading classification schemes.
