Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Among 453 untreated HIV-infected Zimbabwean infants, six-week viral load (VL) was the only infant factor that independently predicted mortality. Infants with VL≥1.59 million copies/mL (cohort median) had 3-fold increased mortality through 6 months [HR 3.07(95%CI 2.16, 4.38); P<0.001] and 2-fold increased mortality through 12 months [HR 2.03 (95% CI 1.41, 2.91); P<0.001], compared to infants with VL below the median.
