Table 1 Quantitation of HIV-1 proviral DNA copy number in AM, PBM, or PBL cells

From: Low Copy Number and Limited Variability of Proviral DNA in Alveolar Macrophages from HIV-1-Infected Patients: Evidence for Genetic Differences in HIV-1 between Lung and Blood Macrophage Populations

    HIV Copy Number/105 Cells
Patient Age CD4+ AM PBM PBL
A 49 622 <3 <3 <3
B 26 440 <3 <3 ND
C 38 195 1–3a 1–3a 65
D 39 50 4 4 1–3a
E 26 50 8 7 5
F 44 27 1–3a 9 63
G 31 14 3 1–3a 5
H 39 8 <3 ND ND
I 53 3 <3 1–3a 20
J 36 3 20 18 15
  1. AM, alveolar macrophages; PBM, peripheral blood monocytes; PBL, peripheral blood lymphocytes; ND, none detected.
  2. aHIV-1 copy number was more than 10 copies/106 cells confirmed by quantitative PCR.
