Hello, everyone. I'm still quite new to these terms. What is the difference between the mutations and how do you know what yours is. Someone said they had the Delta 32. What is that. ???

Have you had a genotyping done?  If not, then from what I understand, you won't know.  If you've had a genotyping done (or any labs) and need some help understanding it, you can post it here and folks will gladly explain it.  Sorry I can't be more help.  Welcome to the forums.

It seems that people who carry two copies of the delta-32 mutation, one from each parent, are resistant to HIV infection despite repeated exposures to the virus.
People who carry one copy of the delta-32 mutation may be substantially resistant.

These people, however, are not resistant to all strains of HIV.
