Consortium Overview

The National NeuroAIDS Tissue Consortium so far has enlisted 3,088 participants in its clinical evaluation/tissue donation program. As of October 20, 2017, central nervous system specimens from 2,139 of HIV-infected and control subjects are available. Of HIV-positive participants, 2,109 have at least one plasma sample available, 1,110 have at least three serial plasma samples, and 1,444 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.
