Many mutations listed on my Genome/Phemone Test

Of the 32 mutations that you list, only 8 - 2 NRTI mutations and 6 PI mutations - are known to be (or, in two cases, may be) associated with reduced sensitivity to drugs in those classes. The remainder of the mutations are 'polymorphisms'... Read more »

I'm not sure what your question here is, but yes, the NNRTI and protease inhibitor classes were developed through an understanding not only of the genetic structure, but the atomic structure of the drug targets. The problem it seems, though is... Read more »
