Resistance Profile
Aug 14, 2006

God bless you, Dr. Young, for all the great work you do. I have seen you write before that Protese Inhibitors have a better resistance profile. My question is if someone becomes resistant to one PI they still may be able to switch to a diffrent PI?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post and comments.

Yes, resistance to one protease inhibitor need not imply resistance to all PIs (unlike the situation for non-nukes). How this actually plays out should be determined by obtaining resistance testing, whenever possible. BY

what is HTLV and is it HIV
