Infrequent replication of parvovirus B19 and erythrovirus genotypes 2 and 3 among HIV-infected patients with chronic anemia


Ferry, T; Hirschel, B; Dang, T; Meylan, P; Delhumeau, C; Rauch, A; Weber, R; Elzi, L; Bernasconi, E; Schmid, P; Calmy, A (2010). Infrequent replication of parvovirus B19 and erythrovirus genotypes 2 and 3 among HIV-infected patients with chronic anemia. Clinical Infectious Diseases, 50(1):115-118.

Abstract

We investigated the role that erythroviruses (parvovirus B19 and erythrovirus genotypes 2 and 3) play in the lives of immunosuppressed HIV-infected patients with chronic anemia. We screened the serum samples of 428 patients by specific ultrasensitive real-time polymerase chain reaction assay. Sixteen patients had circulating DNA, with no apparent clinical impact. Erythrovirus-associated anemia is an extremely rare event in HIV-infected patients.
