KIR haplotype BB is associated with a lower VL and b higher CD4+ T-cell counts in primary HIV infection. c The linkage-disequilibrium between KIR genes. d KIR2DL2 is associated with lower viral loads whilst KIR2DL3 (homozygous or heterozygous) is associated with relatively higher viral loads. Each plot shows the individual viral load or CD4 count measure as well as a LOWESS -smoothed curve fitted to the data as well as the 95 % confidence interval for the curve (grey shading adjacent to coloured lines)
