Response from Dr. Frascino

G'day West Australian Model-Guy,

You've got things a bit backwards. You don't pick the regimen and then run a resistance test. Rather, you run a genotype resistance test first. This will let you know what drugs your virus is susceptible to. From there we pick the best option, factoring in your preferences. Some folks want a once-per-day regimen; others may want the fewest number of pills or the regimen with the least chance of a specific side effect, etc. So, first things first! Get your genotype resistance test, OK? And how about sending some pictures from your latest aussieBum swimsuit shoot on Broome's fabled Cable Beach???

Dr. Bob
