Although India has a large burden of HIV infection, good access to first-line antiretroviral therapy is widely available. However, understanding HIV resistance-associated mutations and polymorphisms is critical for continued success. The RT region of the HIV-1 pol gene was studied among 21 ART-naive HIV-1-infected individuals from South India. In addition,(More)
BACKGROUND Understanding co-receptor tropism of HIV-1 strains circulating in India will provide key analytical leverage for assessing the potential usefulness of newer antiretroviral drugs such as chemokine co-receptor antagonists among Indian HIV-infected populations. The objective of this study was to determine using in silico methods, HIV-1 tropism among(More)
BACKGROUND There is lack of data comparing the improvement in CD4 count following antitubercular (ATT) and antiretroviral therapy (ART) in patients presenting with Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Tuberculosis (HIV/TB) dual infection compared with CD4 matched cohort of TB uninfected HIV patients initiated on ART. We sought to test the hypothesis; TB(More)
Technical Appendix Figure. Phylogenetic analysis of B3 genotype measles virus sequences detected in India with selected global B3 genotypes. A D8 genotype sequence from Thiruvananthapuram was used as the outgroup. We performed maximum-likelihood analysis with 1,000 bootstrap replications using Kimura2-parameter correction with gamma-distributed settings.(More)
HIV-related immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) is increasingly being recognized in regions with a high burden of opportunistic infections. We describe an unusual manifestation of IRIS- 'unmasking' cryptococcal lymphadenitis in a patient shortly after initiation of antiretroviral therapy. Epidemiology, clinical features and management of(More)
