HIV infection typically manifest  with an acute viral syndrome, followed by a period of immune control with relatively low viral loads  and stable CD4 T cell counts. After this asymptomatic  period of usually 8-10 years, viral loads increase, CD4 T cell counts drop and AIDS-defining  opportunistic infections or malignancies occur in untreated patients. There are, however, some patients who display a superior HIV control. These “elite controllers” or “long-term non-progessores” have low viral loads and remain asymptomatic even for decades before the onset of AIDS.
