BACKGROUND In Israel, <0.06% of the general population is infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), with a much higher prevalence among specific groups. These groups are distinguished demographically by risk behavior category and by virus subtype. We investigated transmission of drug resistance within groups to assess the impact of these factors. METHODS Plasma samples from >15% of all patients with new diagnoses of HIV infection were randomly collected between June 1999 and June 2003… CONTINUE READING
