Schim van der Loeff, M. F., Hansmann, A., Awasana, A. A., Ota, M. O., O'Donovan, D., Sarge-Njie, R., et al. (2003). Survival of HIV-1 and HIV-2 perinatally infected children in The Gambia. AIDS, 17(16), 2389-2394.
The risk of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV-2 is much lower than that of HIV-1, but the long-term prognosis of perinatally infected HIV-2 children is unknown. We re-visited children who were part of a large MTCT study in The Gambia (conducted during 1993-1997), in order to compare the long-term survival of children perinatally infected with HIV-2 with that of seronegative and of HIV-1 infected children.
