The antagonists of co-receptor CCR5 are an ultimately new class of preparations to treat HIV-infection. The mechanism of action of the preparations of this class is in the selective binding with co-receptor CCR5. This process results in the prevention of penetration of HIV into cell. Before prescribing the CCR5 antagonists the detection of viral tropism has(More)
The SnoB study analysed the variability of the integrase (IN) gene of non-B viruses from treatment-naïve patients to determine whether non-B subtypes carry natural resistance mutations to raltegravir (RAL). Plasma viral RNA from 427 patients was gained, and IN sequences were subtyped and screened for subtype-specific highly-variable residues. Seven viruses(More)
In Turkey, the first HIV/AIDS case was reported in 1985. Since then the number of persons with HIV infection has increased, HIV is getting a public health problem. The aim of this study was to determine HIV-1 subtype diversity, drug resistance and gag cleavage site mutations among 20 HIV-infected men having sex with men from Istanbul, Turkey. The most(More)
INTRODUCTION Gastrointestinal infections caused by viruses, bacteria, and parasites are endemic in most developing countries due to inadequate provision of safe water supplies, sanitation, and hygiene. To investigate the enteric pathogens infecting people living in Côte d'Ivoire, the Luminex Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel (xTAG GPP) assay was used to(More)
OBJECTIVES Data on drug-resistant mutations (DRMs) in HIV-1-infected therapy-naïve children are scarce. The aim of this study was to determine the HIV-1 subtype distribution and the prevalence of DRMs in therapy-naïve HIV-1-infected children who received routine care at the University Hospital Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf, Germany. METHODS Records of all(More)
Phenotypic resistance analysis is an indispensable method for determination of HIV-1 resistance and cross-resistance to novel drug compounds. Since integrase inhibitors are essential components of recent antiretroviral combination therapies, phenotypic resistance data, in conjunction with the corresponding genotypes, are needed for improving rules-based and(More)
The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of drug resistance of HIV-1 in pediatric patients from Istanbul, Turkey. Genotypic drug resistance testing revealed transmission of drug resistance from mother to child in 20%. Due to rising numbers of children with HIV-1, baseline resistance testing is recommended for Turkey.
OBJECTIVES Aim of this retrospective study was to analyze the dynamics of BKPyV reactivation in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients in order to identify patients with higher risk to develop BKPyV-associated hemorrhagic cystitis (BKPyV-associated HC). METHODS The study included 58 allo-HSCT recipients from the University Hospital of(More)
Turkey is seeing a steady rise in rates of HIV infection in the country. The number of individuals with HIV/AIDS was greater than 7000 in 2014 according to data released by the Ministry of Health, and heterosexual contacts were reported to be the main transmission routes. Istanbul has the highest number of reported cases of HIV infection. The aim of the(More)
The major resistance-associated substitution for sofosbuvir (S282T) in HCV NS5B causes severe viral fitness costs and rapidly reverts back to prototype in the absence of selection pressure. Accordingly, resistance against sofosbuvir is rarely detected even in patients after treatment failure. We report a case of a GT3a infected patient with viral(More)
