Episodes of low-level viremia (LLV), with plasma human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) RNA levels ranging from 50 to 400 copies (c)/ml, occur commonly during highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). LLV has been associated with virologic failure of HAART in some studies, while in others LLV did not appear to affect the clinical outcome. To(More)
To evaluate human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) replication and selection of drug-resistant viruses during seemingly effective highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), multiple HIV-1 env and pol sequences were analyzed and viral DNA levels were quantified from nucleoside analog-experienced children prior to and during a median of 5.1 (range,(More)
Drug-resistant mutants of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) recede below the limit of detection of most assays applied to plasma when selective pressure is altered due to changes in antiretroviral treatment (ART). Viral variants with different mutations are selected by the new ART when replication is not suppressed or wild-type variants with(More)
