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.

    Objectives SAMHD1 and the CDKN1A (p21) cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor have been postulated to mediate HIV-1 restriction in CD4+ cells. We have shown that p21 affects HIV replication through its effect on SAMHD1. Thus, we aimed at evaluating the expression of SAMHD1 and p21 in different HIV+...
