The frequency distribution of the CCR5- 32, CCR2-64I, and SDF1-3 A alleles was studied in the urban population of Bele´m and in Afro- Brazilians, Amerindians, and Japanese immigrants in the state of Para´, Brazil. The results suggest that Amerindians may be genetically more susceptible to HIV-1 infection and disease progression than the other human groups studied.
