Monitoring of HIV viral load in low and middle income settings is limited by high cost of the commercial assays. Therefore, we developed a novel RT-PCR quantitative assay was developed. This assay targets the HIV-1 pol integrase gene (INT). Subsequently, the performance of the INT assay, described previously as a Long Terminal Repeat (LTR) assay and a(More)
We report a case of an HIV-infected patient who was successfully treated with ritonavir/lopinavir (r/LPV) monotherapy for several years. He presented with neurological symptoms and high HIV RNA levels in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Sequencing of the HIV from the CSF revealed mutations in the protease gene reflecting resistance against most protease(More)
We determined the cDNA and gene structures of guinea pig caltrin II, a unique member of the calcium transporter inhibitors containing a whey acidic protein (WAP) motif, and we established that it is a secretory protein with a potential 21-amino acid signal peptide in its N-terminus. Northern blot analysis and in situ hybridization histochemistry indicated(More)
Trappins are found in human, bovine, hippopotamus, and members of the pig family, but not in rat and mouse. To clarify the evolution of the trappin genes and the functional significance of their products, we isolated the trappin gene in guinea pig, a species belonging to a rodent family distinct from rat and mouse. Guinea pig trappin was confirmed to encode(More)
BACKGROUND Indonesia currently faces both an increasing HIV incidence and a high hepatitis B virus (HBV) burden. OBJECTIVE The objective of our study is to examine the prevalence, risk factors, and genotypic distribution of HBV infection among HIV infected patients in West Java, Indonesia. STUDY DESIGN A cross sectional study was conducted among a(More)
The virological response and development of drug resistance during first-line anti-retroviral treatment (ART) were studied in Indonesia where the majority of patients infected with HIV have a history of injecting drug use, which is often linked with lower treatment adherence and development of drug-resistance. As many as 575 patients starting ART between(More)
BACKGROUND Guidelines for treatment of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection consider lamivudine and emtricitabine to be interchangeable components in first-line combination antiretroviral therapy (cART). The evidence for their clinical equivalence in cART is inconsistent. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the virological(More)
BACKGROUND There is a common belief that injecting drug use (IDU) is associated with lower uptake, retention and success of antiretroviral treatment (ART) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients. We examined this in an Indonesian setting, where IDU is the main risk factor for HIV infection. METHODS Patient characteristics and response to(More)
INTRODUCTION Lamivudine (3TC) and emtricitabine (FTC) are considered interchangeable by HIV-1 guidelines in first-line tenofovir/efavirenz (TDF/EFV) and TDF/nevirapine (NVP) combination antiretroviral therapy (cART). Data from trials on equivalence of 3TC and FTC are inconsistent. We examined the effectiveness of 3TC and FTC in the national HIV cohort in(More)
