resistant or not
Sep 19, 2006
after taking norvir for at least four years now my genetype test clearly says i am resistant. Recently my doctor changed my meds to include Aptivus. Why then should I now have to take even more Norvir to boost the Aptivus. How can Norvir boost anything if I am resistant. What does boost mean is something lacking in the Aptivus? Is this a part of salvage therapy? (tcells 112) Thank you

Thanks for your post.
Typically, tipranavir is used for persons who have a high level of PI resistance. Though subjective, some call this situation "salvage therapy".
Best of luck, BY
