Quantification of viral RNA levels and CD4 cell count determinations are the most widely used laboratory assays employed in monitoring HIV patients. However, these tests are expensive, complex to perform, and require advanced laboratory infrastructure and highly skilled laboratory technicians. For these reasons, alternative ways to monitor the progression of HIV have been sought. The aim of this study was to compare the serum proteome of asymptomatic HIV-positive subjects to HIV-negative controls in order to identify novel protein changes that are induced in the human serum proteome following HIV infection. It is hoped that monitoring changes in these protein could be used as a cheaper biomarker for the progression of HIV infection.
