  1. Values for age, viral load, and CD4+ T cell counts are medians and interquartile ranges
  2. aStatistical test used: Wilcoxon rank-sum test (Mann-Whitney U test) was used to compare the differences in age and CD4+ T cell counts between pre-infection and post-infection time points. Chi-square test was used to assess the differences in gender distribution
