Elite suppressors are untreated individuals with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection who maintain viral loads <50 copies/mL. Using a single-copy assay, we show that there is no statistically significant difference between the proportions of elite suppressors and patients receiving suppressive highly active antiretroviral therapy who have viral loads of <1 copy/mL.
