What is sequencing
| Response from Dr. Young
Sequencing, in the context of HIV therapy, refers to concept of using sequential combinations of HAART. We usually need to do this because of the failure of the first regimen (driven, in large part, because of drug resistance). Sequencing strategies, then, attempt to understand the patterns of resistance and cross resistance at time of any one HAART regimen failure, and use this information for best therapeutic outcome in the subsequent round of therapy.
