How Common are resistant HIV viruses?

Jul 18, 2003

I was wondering how common resistant viruses are now among the people that are currently infected with HIV? Do you have an approximate number of the prevelance of the resistant population in percentages? Can you guestimate?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The general numbers in first world countries are: in acute infection around 10% and in treated patients around 50%, have some evidence of HIV drug resistance.
