HIV Drug Resistance and Resistance Testing

2001

Do Specialists Recommend Drug-Resistance Tests?

Yes. Two important groups of medical experts now recommend that drug resistance tests be used in helping HIV-positive people plan their treatment regimens, especially if a switch in therapies is needed. One group that recommends drug resistance testing is the United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), a branch of the federal government that oversees public health in the United States. A second group that recommends these tests is the International AIDS Society-USA (IAS-USA), a private medical organization made up of many leading HIV/AIDS experts in the United States and elsewhere.
