The article discusses long term non-progressor (LTNP) human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. It offers information on the three categories of the genetic factors which influence the rate of progression from HIV to AIDS. An overview of several studies conducted on the viral factors linked to the pathogenicity of HIV-1 in humans is also presented.
