Several B/CRF02_AG Unique Recombinant Forms (URFs) have previously been identified in France. Here we show that one of them (URF5_B/02/G) is emerging in MSM, a high-risk population where HIV incidence and number of superinfections are increasing. We describe this new Circulating Recombinant Form, CRF56_cpx, estimate the time to its most recent common ancestor, investigate its origins and show that it probably shares common ancestors with strains from the East Mediterranean.
