Common human genetic variants and HIV-1 susceptibility: a genome-wide survey in a homogeneous African population.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To date, CCR5 variants remain the only human genetic factors to be confirmed to impact HIV-1 acquisition. However, protective CCR5 variants are largely absent in African populations, in which sporadic resistance to HIV-1 infection is still unexplained. We investigated whether common genetic variants associate with HIV-1 susceptibility in Africans. METHODS: We performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) in a population of 1532 individuals from Malawi, a country with high preval...
