Partial or complete seroreversion for HIV-1, or incomplete antibody evolution are relatively rare events that have so far only been described in patients treated with HAART early after virus infection. Whether seroreversion is seen in patients treated effectively with HAART years after their acute infection has not been investigated so far. Therefore we have investigated anti-HIV antibody levels in 80 patients treated with HAART during chronic HIV-1 infection, who had an undetectable HIV-1 plasma viral load for at least five years. In none of the patients we observed seroreversion, and there was also no significant decrease or increase in antibody levels in this group of patients. So, successful HAART treatment during chronic HIV-1 infection does not induce seroreversion.
