Abstract

The rapid increase of HIV-1 prevalence among Chinese men who have sex with men (MSM) provides an impetus for the acquisition of molecular epidemiologic information from this population. We conducted four serial cross-sectional surveys during year 2005-2009 and observed that the composition of HIV-1 subtypes was dynamically changing with from clade B to CRF01_AE from years 2005-2009. HIV-1 infection in this population includes the persistent circulation of multiple HIV-1 subtypes and complex new recombinants.
