Abstract

We reported a novel human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) circulating recombinant form (CRF) among four epidemiologically unlinked patients through men having sex with men in Heilongjiang Province, China. It was named CRF107_01B (this is temporary as we have not received the CRF number from HIV databases). A near full-length genome phylogenetic tree showed that CRF107_01B was generated by two CRF01_AE segments that was described as cluster 5 lineage of CRF01_AE (CRF01-5) inserted into the B (Western origin) backbone. The emergence of CRF107_01B increased the complexity of HIV-1.
