Consortium Overview

The National NeuroAIDS Tissue Consortium so far has enlisted 3,150 participants in its clinical evaluation/tissue donation program. As of November 1, 2018, central nervous system specimens from 2,179 of HIV-infected and control subjects are available. Of HIV-positive participants, 2,040 have at least one plasma sample available, 1,142 have at least three serial plasma samples, and 1,431 have at least one CSF sample available. These numbers change as new samples are added and some of the collected samples are distributed. Please refer to our COHORT REPORTS PowerPoint presentation for more complete details.
