CCR2 Chemokine Receptor and AIDS Progression
Recently we reported an association between the CCR2-64I chemokine receptor mutation and delayed onset of AIDS. Michael et al. have now examined the San Francisco Mens Health Study (SFMHS) AIDS cohort for CCR2 genotypes and in this issue of Nature Medicine report that they fail to detect the CCR2-64I association.
