We compared the antibody response to HIV using two serologic cross-sectional incidence assays in adults with perinatally-acquired HIV, to elite controllers and individuals exposed to antiretroviral therapy who were all infected as adults. Low antibody responses were seen more frequently in adults with perinatally-acquired HIV, both overall and when stratified by viral suppression status.
