Early immunologic failure is associated with early mortality among advanced HIV-infected adults initiating antiretroviral therapy with active tuberculosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The relationship between antiretroviral therapy (ART) response and early mortality after ART initiation is unknown. We hypothesized that early mortality is associated with decreased early immunologic response to ART. METHODS We prospectively determined the association between changes in plasma human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) RNA and… (More)
