Development of Specimen Repository and Evaluation of Assays for Identification of Recent HIV Infection

Investigator: Christopher Pilcher, MD
Sponsor: Health Protection Agency (UK)

Location(s): South Africa


Specific project objectives are to evaluate and compare currently available assays for the detection of recent HIV infection, using a common set of well-characterised specimens collected for this purpose; and to assess the suitability of the assays, alone or in combination, for accurate HIV incidence estimation in populations.
