The C868T single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the CD4 receptor encodes an amino acid change that could alter its structure and influence human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) infection risk. HIV-1-infected pregnant women in Nairobi were followed with their infants for 1 year postpartum. Among 131 infants, those with the 868T allele were more likely than wild-type infants to acquire HIV-1 overall [hazard ratio (HR) = 1.92, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.05, 3.50, P = 0.03; adjusted HR = 2.03, 95% CI 1.03, 3.98, P = 0.04], after adjusting for maternal viral load. This SNP (an allele frequency of approximately 15% in our cohort) was associated with increased susceptibility to mother-to-child HIV-1 transmission, consistent with a previous study on this polymorphism among Nairobi sex workers.
