Two mutations / at the 120?
Aug 23, 1999

Dr. Holodniy:

I believe the lab test i had was a 3 Cell marker study , this is probably a vague description, nevertheless, i was told i have two mutations and it was at the 120 ? (something) Does that mean anything significant? I believe the resistance is to the NNRTI's and DDI. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

A codon change at 120, if that is truly what it was, would not be considered a significant change for NNRTI or ddI resistance. Were there any other codon changes in the report? MH
