Evolution of median HIV-RNA load and CD4∶CD8 ratios in recently infected patients.

HIV-RNA load (A) and CD4∶CD8 ratios (B) in patients with high HIV-RNA as compared to the other patients. Median and interquartile range are shown. HIV-RNA viral load groups are defined as described in methods. P-values are from Wilcoxon rank sum test between groups as follows: *p = 0.0001, **p = 0.038, *** p = 0.002. P-values from Wilcoxon Signed Rank between visits did not show significant differences. Numbers denote the n for each group at each time point.
