Title:
Genomic characterization of a novel HIV type 1 B/G intersubtype recombinant strain from an injecting drug user in Germany. 
Abstract:
Recombinant forms of HIV-1 contribute significantly to the ongoing epidemic. In the present study we characterize the full-length genome of a novel B/G intersubtype recombinant strain from a patient with a history of injection drug use. This is the first evidence of a B/G recombinant among injecting drug users in Germany. Moreover, this genetically divergent strain has important clinical implications since it was undetectable in the NucliSens HIV-1 QT assay and significantly underquantified by t...    »
