Objective:To analyze the safety and effectiveness of abacavir, lamivudine, and zidovudine (ABC/3TC/ZDV) in antiretroviral therapy (ART)-naive HIV-infected patients. Design:Retrospective observational cohort study. Methods:We analyzed all consecutive ART-naive HIV-infected patients who initiated ABC/3TC/ZDV in 71 centers throughout Spain and had a clinical visit and laboratory data at least 16 weeks after initiating this regimen. We assessed safety, mortality, new AIDS-defining conditions (ADCs… 
Once-Daily Abacavir/Lamivudine/Zidovudine plus Tenofovir for the Treatment of HIV-1 Infection in Antiretroviral-NaïveSubjects: A 48-Week Pilot Study
TLDR
A high rate of premature discontinuations contributed to the overall suboptimal virologic response to ABC/3TC/ZDV+TDF qd; however, the regimen was not associated with high rates of virologics failure previously observed with TDF+ABC/ 3TC.
Rate of virologic failure and selection of drug resistance mutations using different triple nucleos(t)ide analogue combinations in HIV-infected patients.
TLDR
Resistance pathways for TDF and thymidine analogues seem to be divergent and could be the basis to explore a synergism between these drugs.
HIV in Denmark and Greenland, 1995–2004, the effect of highly active antiretroviral therapy and characteristics of the HIV-infected population: an observational study
TLDR
The aims of this thesis were to examine temporal trends in deaths, new infections, and individual patients characteristics among the Danish HIV-infected population, and to estimate acquisition of antiretroviral drug-resistant virus over time.
HIV-associated tuberculosis: clinical update.
TLDR
Because of the poor performance of sputum smear microscopy in HIV-infected patients, more sensitive tests-such as liquid culture systems, nucleic acid amplification assays, and detection of mycobacterial products in various body fluids-are being investigated.
The effect evaluation of highly active antiretroviral therapy to patients with AIDS in Hubei province of China
TLDR
HAART can improve AIDS patients’ clinical symptoms, reduce HIV RNA concentration, and maintain immune function, and it is very important for the effectiveness of HAART to raise clinical adherence of patients with AIDS and have a persistent surveillance.

TLDR
HAART can improve AIDS patients’ clinical symptoms, reduce HIV RNA concentration, and maintain immune function, and it is very important for the effectiveness of HAART to raise clinical adherence of patients with AIDS and have a persistent surveillance.
Different profiles of immune reconstitution in children and adults with HIV-infection after highly active antiretroviral therapy
TLDR
Investigating differences in immune reconstitution profiles after highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) between HIV-children and adults suggested that HIV-Rec-children had better thymic function than HIV- Rec-adults and this fact affects the peripheral T-cell subsets.
Antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence among people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV) in the north of Vietnam : a multi-method approach
TLDR
Non-adherence to ART was significantly associated with untreated depression, heavy alcohol use, illicit drug use, experiences with medication side-effects, chance health locus of control, low quality of information from HCPs, low satisfaction with received support and poor social connectedness.

Triple Nucleoside Combination Zidovudine/Lamivudine/Abacavir versus Zidovudine/Lamivudine/Nelfinavir as First-Line Therapy in HIV-1-Infected Adults: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
The triple nucleoside combination combivir/abacavir is well tolerated as a first-line ART regimen in HIV-1-infected adults, with comparable antiviral activity to a nelfinavir-containing regimen at week 48.
Triple nucleoside treatment with abacavir plus the lamivudine/ zidovudine combination tablet (COM) compared to indinavir/COM in antiretroviral therapy-naïve adults: results of a 48-week open-label, equivalence trial (CNA3014)
TLDR
An equivalence trial comparing antiviral response, tolerability, and adherence with a triple nucleoside regimen containing abacavir 300 mg plus a lamivudine 150-mg/zidovudine 300-mg combination tablet in antiretroviral-naïve, HIV-infected patients found ABC/COM met the criterion of equivalence to IDV/COM.
Overview of the effectiveness of triple combination therapy in antiretroviral-naive HIV-1 infected adults
TLDR
The results suggest that three drug regimens containing two NRTI with a PI, a NNRTI, or a third N RTI may provide comparable activity, and practical issues such as daily pill burden should be considered when choosing a treatment regimen.
Triple-nucleoside regimens versus efavirenz-containing regimens for the initial treatment of HIV-1 infection.
TLDR
In this trial of the initial treatment of HIV-1 infection, the triple-nucleoside combination of abacavir, zidovudine, and lamivudine was virologically inferior to a regimen containing efavirenz and two or three nucleosides.
Treatment for adult HIV infection.
TLDR
The objective was to update recommendations for physicians who provide HIV care regarding when to start antiretroviral therapy what drugs to start with when to change drug regimens and whatdrug regimens to switch to after therapy fails.
Validation of a simplified medication adherence questionnaire in a large cohort of HIV-infected patients: the GEEMA Study
TLDR
The SMAQ appears to be an adequate instrument with which to assess adherence in HIV-infected patients, and may be applied in most clinical settings.

CONTEXT Substantial changes in the field of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) treatment have occurred in the last 2 years, prompting revision of the guidelines for antiretroviral management of
Antiretroviral therapy for HIV infection in 1998: updated recommendations of the International AIDS Society-USA Panel.
TLDR
Accumulating data from clinical and pathogenesis studies continue to support early institution of potent antiretroviral therapy in patients with HIV infection, and increased complexity in HIV management requires ongoing monitoring of new data for optimal treatment of HIV infection.
