Phenotypic susceptibility to nonnucleoside inhibitors of virion-associated reverse transcriptase from different HIV types and groups.

OBJECTIVES To evaluate a phenotype assay based on plasma reverse transcriptase (RT) to assess HIV susceptibility to nonnucleoside RT inhibitors (NNRTIs). To compare RT-based phenotype with recombinant virus assay (RVA) phenotype- and genotype-based analysis. To assess group O and HIV-2 susceptibility to NNRTIs in correlation with genotype polymorphisms… CONTINUE READING
