Dr.

How long following treatment interruption before the "wild-type" become the predominate strain?

When you are infected by someone, do all their cells have the same mutations, or does different cells have different mutations/resistance?

thanks

Response from Dr. Holodniy

1) If drug resistance is present, In about 8-12 weeks.

2) Different cells can have different strains of virus with different mutations/resistance.
