Abstract

We characterized the molecular nature of a large number of primary HIV-1 isolates in the four southern states of India. In addition to confirming a predominance of subtype C infection, for the first time we identified three B/C recombinant viruses in a subset of 115 samples. Unexpectedly, env sequences of two of the three B/C recombinants phylogenetically clustered with subtype B strains of the USA. The determination of the real incidence of the recombinant viruses is of importance.
