We decided to investigate the different antigen-antibody panels seen with the HIV-1 Immunoblot procedure in infected infants, non-infected (passively acquired antibody) infants, their mothers & a group of non-related females & males with HIV disease. The table shows the standardized host of response by quarters after birth in non-infected infants for the different Ag-Ab systems of HIV-1 & the Human Immune Response.(Table:see text). By 12m, more than 60% of the blots were indeterminate. Infected children showed a correlation with their mothers vs non-relative females, and males suggesting genetic control of the response.
