The CCR5 Delta32, CCR2 64I, SDF1 3'A, and CCR5 promoter 59029 polymorphisms have been suggested to influence HIV-1 disease progression. Furthermore, the CCR5 Delta32 and the CCR2 64I polymorphisms have been associated with various other diseases. The purpose of the present study was to develop a multiplex assay for the simultaneous determination of these four polymorphisms. Results obtained with the multiplex assay were compared to results obtained by conventional RFLP-PCR and no differences were observed. The multiplex assay offers a quick tool for the determination of the CCR5 Delta32, CCR2 64I, SDF1 3'A, and CCR5 promoter 59029 A/G polymorphisms.
