HIV Disease Progression: A Comparison of ARV Treatment Regimens
This study compares various anti-retroviral (ARVs) treatment regimens by monitoring HIV-1 disease progression in 12 participants. Disease metrics include: viral load, CD4 counts, and white blood cell counts. 2 different methods of measuring viral load were used in tandem, PCR and NASBA.
ARV treatment was initiated in the 8th week. Dosage was evaluated every 4 weeks during treatment.
Participants under the ETR Regimen fared better than those under the DRV Regimen. In general, participants under any ARV regimen fared better than those without treatment.
