Figure 7

Viral RNA and proviral load in blood and mucosal tissue of controllers and progressors. (A) Viral RNA copies were determined per 500 ng total RNA of BAL cells, duodenal and colonic biopsies from controllers and progressors and shown along with the respective RNA viral load per ml plasma. (B) Proviral DNA copies per 500 ng genomic DNA were determined in BAL cells, PBMC, colonic and duodenal biopsies of controllers and in PBMC and BAL cells of progressors. P-values were calculated with the Mann-Whitney's U-test (**P < 0.01 and ***P < 0.001).
