METHODS Five hundred and seventy-two patients were identified with MDR HIV-1 between 1997 and 2004. Factors associated with(More)

Etravirine is a next generation nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor with activity against nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor resistant HIV-1 virus. Susceptibility and virological response to etravirine is dependent on the type and number of nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor resistance-associated mutations. We examined the(More)
