Abstract

The baseline characteristics of antiretroviral-naive patients were compared by ethnic/racial groups. First CD4 T cell counts were lower for Latino (P = 0.0004) and black patients (P = 0.10) when compared with white patients. First HIV-1-RNA levels were higher in Latino patients (P = 0.08), who were also more likely to present with major opportunistic infections (P < 0.004). Once in care, changes in CD4 T cell counts and viral loads over time did not differ significantly between groups.
