Abstract

Acute measle virus infection call result in a transient decrease in plasma human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) RNA loads. We report the kinetics of plasma HIV-1 RNA loads in 2 Zambian children with confirmed and probable measles, and show that the decline in viral load is of similar magnitude to the first-phase decay rate after initiation of antiretroviral therapy.
