Should it get an access to feed on viraemic
host; it could definitely cause focal outbreaks due to high replication potential and vector competence.
Neutralising antibody responses are weaker in elite controllers compared with viraemic
controllers or progressors.
In resource-limited settings, the differentiation of elite controllers from viraemic controllers may be complicated.
This case of a likely elite or viraemic controller LTNP in Botswana illuminates gaps in our knowledge of the molecular mechanisms and clinical management of such patients.
The majority of viraemic
patients with multi-drug-resistant HIV can now be suppressed when raltegravir is combined with other active agents.
An increased frequency of haplotype HLA A*11- Cw *04 in viraemic
HCV patients was reported in a white population in Ireland (22).
Regardless the outcome of the discriminatory probe assay or multiplex repeat assays, it has been recommend to discard all initial NAT reactive donations in order to avoid infusion of a very low-level viraemic
unit that was originally detected as reactive by the primary screening assay but missed in the repeat assays (28).
