A total of 144 patients (70%) reported chemosensory complaints, 91 (44%) reported both taste and smell complaints, 47 (23%) reported only taste complaints, and six (3%) reported only smell complaints. Many patients complained that drugs interfered with their sense of taste, or that medications tasted bad. Higher chemosensory complaint scores were associated with a greater number of medications taken, tobacco use, and hay fever. Patients with chemosensory complaints had significantly lower scores in all domains of the MOS-HIV than those without complaints. Quality of life as measured by the MOS-HIV was lower in patients with chemosensory complaints even after controlling for number of AIDS diagnoses, number of medications, CD4 cell count, and HIV-1 viral load.

The preliminary results of the Concorde trial demonstrated the transient clinical benefit of monotherapy with zidovudine (AZT) in asymptomatic persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). This result, which has been widely disseminated and discussed, was predictable given the previous demonstration of the development of resistance to AZT in isolates from individuals receiving prolonged treatment with the drug and given the finding that didanosine (ddI) is more efficacious than continued therapy with AZT in individuals who have received > or = 6 months of AZT monotherapy. On the basis of these findings, interest in combinations of antiretroviral agents has continued to grow. Many in vitro studies of nucleoside and nonnucleoside inhibitors of reverse transcriptase combined with interferon-alpha or inhibitors of protease have been published. In addition, numerous clinical trials of various combinations have been completed or are under way. Dr. Martin Hirsch and his colleagues at the Massachusetts General Hospital have been among the leaders of this effort. He and Dr. Angela Caliendo review, in this AIDS Commentary, the current state of our knowledge regarding the potential utility of combination therapy for infection with HIV-1.

This article describes a very simple route for synthesizing novel lipophilic phosphate bis(t-bu-SATE) prodrugs of acyclic cyclobutylated C-nucleosides such as isocytosine 12 and 9-deazaadenine 19, which were prepared from 1,1-gem cyclobutyl dicarboxylate. Synthesized compounds were evaluated as potential antiviral agents against HIV virus. Some phosphate SATE prodrugs were more active against HIV than parent nucleosides.

The value of k for HIV-1 RNA in plasma was positively and significantly associated with the mean plasma nevirapine concentration during the first 2 weeks of therapy (P = 0.011) and the baseline HIV-1 RNA (P = 0.008). Patients with a higher exposure to nevirapine reached undetectable levels of HIV-1 RNA in plasma more rapidly (P = 0.03). From 12 weeks on, the median nevirapine plasma concentration was significantly correlated with success of therapy after 52 weeks (P < 0.02).

[(3)H]Hypoxanthine was detected in TR-MUL5 cells and TR-MUL5 cell-cultured medium 3 hours after [(3)H]adenosine incubation, indicating that the hypoxanthine is produced in TR-MUL5 cells. [(3)H]Adenosine was taken up into TR-MUL5 cells, which express mRNAs of nucleoside transporters (ENT1-2 and CNT1-2), in an Na(+)-independent and concentration-dependent manner (Km = 20 μM). Moreover, 100 μM nitrobenzylmercaptopurine riboside (NBMPR) and azidothymidine, which are inhibitors of ENT2, inhibited [(3)H]adenosine uptake, suggesting that ENT2 is a major contributor to adenosine transport in Müller cells. [(3)H]Hypoxanthine was eliminated from the rat vitreous humor and this process was inhibited in the presence of NBMPR. [(3)H]Hypoxanthine uptake by TR-iBRB2 cells took place in an Na(+)-independent and concentration-dependent manner with Km values of 4.3 μM and 2.9 mM, and was inhibited by 100 μM NBMPR.

3'-Azido-3'-deoxythymidine (AZT)-resistant human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) was obtained by growing HTLV-IIIB in C8166 cell cultures in the presence of inhibitory concentrations of AZT. The AZT-resistant HIV-1 was capable of replicating, as measured by infectious virus yield, and inducing cytopathic effect in the presence of AZT concentrations able to completely suppress the replication of parental HTLV-IIIB. Cloning of the AZT-resistant HIV-1 revealed that a number of different variants of HIV-1 with various degrees of sensitivity to AZT emerged during propagation of HTLV-IIIB in C8166 cells in the presence of the drug. PCR experiments performed on DNA extracted from C8166 cells infected with a resistant strain revealed that viral DNA was produced in the presence of inhibitory concentrations of AZT, while viral DNA in C8166 cells infected with the parental virus was drastically inhibited. Reverse transcriptase isolated from the AZT-resistant HIV-1 variant failed to show resistance to AZT 5'-triphosphate.

Prevention of HIV transmission after accidental occupational exposure is possible. Combination therapy is more effective than monotherapy in treating HIV infections. Zidovudine (AZT or ZDV) is effective in postexposure prophylaxis; the combination of zidovudine and lamivudine (3TC) and indinavir (IDV) has greater antiretroviral activity than zidovudine alone does. The requirements for effective HIV postexposure prophylaxis may be somewhat different than those for optimum HIV treatment in the chronically ill HIV-positive patient. Ophthalmologists should have an in-depth knowledge of current thinking regarding HIV pathophysiology and treatment.

HIV-1-infected patients had more hypodiploid cells (19%), fewer G0-G1 phase cells (70%) and more S phase cells (10%) than did healthy controls (8%, 85% and 5% respectively; P = 0.002). Patients with sustained suppression of plasma HIV-1 RNA levels after antiretroviral therapy had only modest improvements in these indices. In contrast, patients who failed to suppress plasma HIV-1 RNA levels had decreases in G0-G1 cells to 54% (P = 0.032) and increases in S phase cells to 24% (P = 0.055). Plasma HIV-1 RNA levels and the percentage of S phase cells were correlated (r, 0.23; P = 0.047). In patients failing antiretroviral therapy, there was an inverse correlation between the percentage of G0-G1 cells and expression of the activation antigens CD38 and HLA-DR on CD4 cells (r, -0.409; P = 0.016) and CD8 cells (r, -0.363; P = 0.035).

The CSF influx rate of zidovudine was the highest, although moderate, followed by that of stavudine. The permeability coefficients of the other drugs tested were low. Zidovudine influx into the CSF is independent of thymidine transport systems, and more importantly is limited by an efflux mechanism. This efflux involves an apical (CSF-facing) carrier belonging to the solute carrier (Slc) 22 family of organic anion transporters, and can be inhibited by a therapeutic concentration of benzbromarone.

Chronic hepatitis C virus infection is currently one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in HIV-infected individuals, mainly in hemophiliacs and intravenous drug users. The bidirectional interferences between hepatitis C virus and HIV have clinical consequences and complicate the management of coinfected individuals.

Zidovudine (ZDV) was evaluated for adverse effects on reproduction and fetal development in animal test species. Standard preclinical tests for reproduction and fertility, developmental toxicity, and postnatal toxicity were conducted in CD (Sprague-Dawley) rats and a developmental toxicity study was conducted in New Zealand white rabbits. In an additional study, reproductive outcome was characterized in female rats given ZDV before, during, or after mating and drug levels in the plasma and milk of lactating rats were determined. Finally, drug exposure data including observed peak plasma concentrations (Cmax) and area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) were evaluated for pregnant rats and rabbits. In a reproduction/fertility study in CD rats, toxicity to the early rat embryo, manifested as an increase in early resorptions and a decrease in litter size, was noted following dosage of the parental animals with 75 or 225 mg ZDV/kg bid. A dose of 25 mg/kg bid was a no-effect level in rats. At the time of mating, male rats had been dosed for 85 days, and females had been dosed for 26 days. To further evaluate the effects of ZDV on reproduction, dosing of male rats was continued to 149 days when they were mated a second time to virgin, untreated females. All reproductive parameters were normal in the untreated females from this second mating, indicating that the embryotoxic effect of the drug was not likely mediated by a genotoxic or other effect in the male. A separate study in female CD rats given 225 mg/kg bid for various periods pre- or postconception suggests that the toxic effect of ZDV is primarily to the early rodent embryo. Early embryo death did not occur in rats or rabbits in standard developmental (teratology) studies; however, pregnant New Zealand white rabbits given 250 mg/kg bid during gestation Days 6-18 showed reduced weight gain, anemia, and an increase in late fetal deaths. No other evidence of developmental toxicity was noted in either species, and ZDV was not teratogenic in rats or rabbits given up to 250 mg/kg bid during the period of major organogenesis. At this dose, Cmax values in rats and rabbits were approximately 234 and 150 times higher, respectively, than the mean steady-state serum concentration in adults following chronic oral administration of 250 mg every 4 hr. In both the reproduction/fertility study and a peri- and postnatal study in rats, liveborn offspring showed no adverse effects on survival, growth, or developmental measurements.

The binding of novel nucleoside derivatives (2-7) to the Human Serum Albumin (HSA) was studied using zidovudine (AZT), as standard compound. The applicability of two different techniques to separate unbound drug from drug-protein complex was analyzed: the gel filtration and ultrafiltration methods. Ultrafiltration was found to be an adequate procedure for the separation of unbounded drug from the drug-protein complex. Incubation temperature ranging from 0 to 37 degrees C did not modify considerably the bound fractions. The same effects were observed as HSA concentration was modified. Binding assays of studied compounds to purified 1% (w/v) HSA at 0 degrees C, indicate that bound fraction of 2-7 ranges from 13 to 47%, exhibiting a higher affinity to HSA than AZT (12%), which would introduce some interesting improvements in their pharmacokinetic properties. In addition, by means of displacement studies using HSA site specific drugs such as diazepam and salicylate, it was determined that AZT binds to site I of the HSA molecule, by a mainly entropy driven process (DeltaS = 10.834 cal/mol degrees K), being these observations extensive to 2-7. Some structural basis to explain enhanced affinity of these novel derivatives was also established.

In comparing two treatments under a typical sequential clinical trial setting, a 50-50 randomization design generates reliable data for making efficient inferences about the treatment difference for the benefit of patients in the general population. However, if the treatment difference is large and the endpoint of the study is potentially fatal, it does not seem appropriate to sacrifice a large number of study patients who are assigned to the inferior arm. An adaptive design is a data-dependent treatment allocation rule that sequentially uses accumulating information about the treatment difference during the trial to modify the allocation rule for new study patients. In this article, we utilize real trials from AIDS and cancer to illustrate the advantage of using adaptive designs. Specifically we show that, with adaptive designs, the loss of power for testing the equality of two treatments is negligible. Moreover, the study patients do not have to pay a handsome price for the benefit of future patients. We also propose multi-stage adaptive rules to relax the administrative burden of implementing the study and to handle continuous response variables, such as the failure time in survival analysis.

In an attempt to combine the anti-HIV-inhibitory capacity of nucleoside reverse transcriptase (RT) inhibitors (NRTI) and non-nucleoside RT inhibitors (NNRTI), several heterodimer analogues of the previously reported [AZT]-(CH(2))(3)-[TSAO-T] prototype have been prepared. In these novel series, other NRTIs, an expanded range of linkers with different conformational freedom and other attachment sites for these linkers on the base part of the NRTI analogue have been explored. Moreover, in order to circumvent the dependence of the NRTI moiety of the heterodimer on activation by cellular nucleoside kinases, novel heterodimers in which the NRTI is bearing a masked monophosphate group at the 5'-position are described. Among the novel heterodimers, several derivatives show a potent anti-HIV-1 activity, which proved comparable, or even superior, to that of the AZT heterodimer prototype. The nature of the NRTI was important for the eventual anti-HIV-1 activity. In particular, the d4T heterodimer derivative containing a propyl linker between the N-3 positions of the base of TSAO-T and d4T was approximately 5- to 10-fold more inhibitory to HIV-1 than the corresponding AZT heterodimer prototype.

In 565 adult cases of AIDS at autopsy, Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) remained the most common cause of death, but both the frequency of and number of deaths of PCP declined over time. Deaths from bacterial sepsis, cytomegalovirus infection, Mycobacterium avium complex infection, and toxoplasmosis also declined during this period, but mortality from fungal infections, tuberculosis, encephalopathy, and causes unrelated to AIDS increased. The death rate from malignant lymphoma remained high. Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) continued to occur more frequently in patients whose risk factor for human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV) was homosexuality or bisexuality, but the death rate from KS was greatest for patients with a risk factor of blood exposure to HIV. Survival was shorter and deaths from tuberculosis more common in patients with a history of intravenous drug use. Overall survival of patients in other AIDS risk groups increased over time, particularly in those treated with antiretroviral therapy. The organ system distribution of major opportunistic infections and neoplasms was similar throughout the years of the study. The lung was the most frequent organ involved by AIDS-associated diseases leading to death, followed by the gastrointestinal tract and the central nervous system.

It is known that infected macrophages play an important role in HIV pathogenesis acting as a reservoir for dissemination of the virus to various organs. Enhanced and/or specific delivery of anti-HIV agents to infected cells is expected to improve their therapeutic index by increasing efficacy and reducing toxicity. Acetylated low density lipoproteins (AcLDL) are known to be taken up by macrophages via scavenger receptors and appear to be good carriers for targeting drug molecules to macrophages. This study investigated the delivery of 3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine (AZT), an anti-HIV agent, to macrophages using AcLDL. Since the incorporation of AZT into AcLDL was found to be low, several derivatives of AZT including 5'-O-13-oxamyristate-AZT (5'-O-oxaMyr-AZT) have been synthesized as prodrugs. The prodrugs were incorporated into AcLDL using two different methods, namely the contact method and the microemulsion method. Our results demonstrated that the microemulsion method was more effective. The physicochemical properties of the AcLDL/prodrug complex were evaluated by electrophoresis and electron microscopy (EM). Incubation of the complex with plasma resulted in little distribution of the incorporated drug molecules from AcLDL to other components of the plasma, suggesting that the complex was quite stable. Cellular uptake studies using J774.A and U937 demonstrated that AcLDL/prodrug was taken up about 10 times more than AZT. The presence of excess AcLDL was found to inhibit the cellular uptake of AcLDL/5'-O-oxaMyr-AZT by macrophages while excess high density lipoprotein (HDL) or low density lipoprotein (LDL) was found to have little effect, suggesting that the AcLDL/prodrug complex is taken up into macrophages via the scavenger receptor.

In 1999, for the first time in South Africa, a Mother-to-Child HIV Transmission (MTCT) prevention programme was implemented at the routine primary care level and not as part of a research protocol. A total of 264 women attending prenatal care in these clinics were interviewed in Xhosa using a standardized questionnaire. All had been offered HIV testing, and 95% had accepted. Women who had not been tested were four times more likely to believe that in the community families reject HIV-positive women (p<0.005). Of women who tested, 19% were HIV positive and 83% had told their partner that they had taken the test. HIV-positive women who had not disclosed testing to their partners were three times more likely to believe that, in the community, partners are violent towards HIV-positive women (p<0.005); 86% stated that they would have taken AZT if found to be HIV positive. Only 11% considered that the use of formula feeding indicated that a woman was HIV positive. In conclusion, routine prenatal HIV testing and interventions to reduce perinatal HIV transmission are acceptable to the majority of women in a South African urban township, despite an awareness of discrimination in the community towards HIV-positive women.

A total of 378 HIV-1-infected adults who had not received previous antiretroviral treatment received three months of induction therapy consisting of 300 mg of zidovudine every 12 hours, 150 mg of lamivudine every 12 hours, and 800 mg of indinavir every 8 hours. The 279 patients in whom the plasma HIV-1 RNA titer fell below buy retrovir 500 copies per milliliter after two months of triple-drug therapy, and who completed the induction phase, were randomly assigned at month 3 to one of the following three open-label maintenance regimens: zidovudine, lamivudine, and indinavir; zidovudine and lamivudine; or zidovudine and indinavir. The primary end point was an increase in HIV-1 RNA levels to 500 copies or more per milliliter during the maintenance phase.

Twenty-six haemophilic patients with advanced HIV infection who had developed resistance or intolerance to zidovudine were treated with didanosine (ddI). 11 patients continue to take ddI at a median time of 14 months buy retrovir from commencement (range 7-18 months). Five of these patients showed an increase in CD4 lymphocyte count, reaching a maximum at a median time of 4 months. Four patients with HIV-related symptoms improved clinically. In general, the CD4 count and clinical improvements were not sustained. 11 patients discontinued ddI after a median of 3 months (range 3 days to 10 months), most commonly due to gastrointestinal side-effects. No case of pancreatitis or peripheral neuropathy was seen. Six patients, all with very advanced HIV disease, died. HIV-infected haemophilic patients who become resistant or intolerant to zidovudine may derive benefit from ddI, although this is usually transient.

Skeletal muscle involvement may occur at all stages of HIV-infection and represents the first manifestation of the disease into some patients. We usually classify muscle involvement in HIV-infected patients in one of the following categories: HIV-associated myopathy, a myopathy that meets the criteria buy retrovir for polymyositis in a majority of patients, and those for acquired nemaline myopathy in some cases (1); zidovudine myopathy, a reversible mitochondrial myopathy (2); HIV-wasting syndrome and other AIDS-associated cachexias (3); opportunistic infections and tumor infiltrations of the skeletal muscle (4); vasculitic processes and iron pigment deposits (5); HIV-associated myasthenia gravis (6) and rhabdomyolysis (7). Immunohistology for major histocompatibility complex class I antigen and histochemical reaction for cytochrome coxidase are helpful in the correct classification of a myopathy as HIV polymyositis or zidovudine myopathy.

We evaluated zidovudine-experienced patients for whom treatment with indinavir, lamivudine, and zidovudine failed, for indinavir-resistant minority variants. Of 10 patients with plasma human immunodeficiency virus type 1 RNA suppression and subsequent rebound, 6 without primary indinavir-resistance mutations underwent clonal analysis. One had evidence of V82A in 9 of 30 clones at week 24, with no increase at week 40. The dominant week-40 82V-M184V buy retrovir clones had changes at protease codons 62-64, compared with all clones at week 24 and minority clones at week 40. Resistance to indinavir can emerge during treatment failure in nucleoside-experienced patients but may be missed by routine sequence analysis. Selection for indinavir-resistant variants on treatment with indinavir, lamivudine, and zidovudine may occur slowly, depending on the genetic context in which they arise.

The objective of this study was to compare the effects of zidovudine and didanosine on health-related quality of life in persons with advanced HIV infection and varying duration of prior zidovudine exposure. It was designed as a substudy nested in two similar placebo-controlled active-control-arm randomized trials, using sites of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group participating in the randomized trials of zidovudine versus didanosine (ACTG 116 and 117). The patients comprised 356 participants enrolled in ACTG 116 and 117. All had HIV infection and either a CD4 count of <200 cells/mm3, or a CD4 count of <300 cells/mm3 plus symptoms of HIV disease. Participants were randomized equally within strata defined by duration of prior zidovudine therapy, to receive didanosine sachets at a dose of 500 mg daily (334 mg in subjects weighing <60 kg) or 750 mg daily (500 mg in subjects weighting <60 kg) plus inactive capsules resembling zidovudine, or to receive zidovudine capsules at a dose of 600 mg daily plus inactive sachets resembling didanosine. The main outcome measures were self-reported health-related quality of life, healthcare utilization, disability, work and symptom impact. The results showed no differences in reported symptom impact or healthcare utilization, and most measures of disability were similar. In the group with more than 8 weeks of prior zidovudine therapy, several of the health status scale scores for ongoing participants were significantly better for didanosine recipients, but average differences were small. Use of several different approaches to combining health status and survival showed no differences in the overall quality-time experiences between the treatment groups. Individuals taking zidovudine, low-dose didanosine and high-dose didanosine experienced 33, 34 and 35 weeks, respectively, in at least the typical health state if they had fewer than 8 weeks of previous zidovudine therapy, and had 23 buy retrovir , 23 and 26 weeks, respectively, if they had more than 8 weeks previous use of zidovudine. Results did not differ when data were analysed within strata ofpatients who had any versus no prior exposure to zidovudine, or AIDS versus non-AIDS status. In conclusion, functional status and health-related quality of life were substantially similar among persons receiving either zidovudine or didanosine, regardless of the duration of prior zidovudine treatment.

279 HIV-infected subjects with HIV-1 RNA (VL) >5000 but < 200,000 copies/mL (c/mL buy retrovir ) and CD4+ count >/= 100 cells/mm3 were randomized (1:1) to receive abacavir sulfate/lamivudine/zidovudine (ABC/3TC/ZDV) twice-daily or atazanavir (ATV) once-daily plus lamivudine/zidovudine (3TC/ZDV) twice-daily. Protocol-defined virologic failure was based on multiple failure criteria.Non-inferiority of ABC/3TC/ZDV to ATV+3TC/ZDV was established with 62% vs. 59% of subjects achieving a VL < 50 c/mL at week 48, [ITT(E), M/S = F, 95% CI: -5.9, 10.4]. Similar results were observed in the 230 (82%) subjects with baseline VL<100,000 c/mL (ABC/3TC/ZDV vs. ATV+3TC/ZDV), 66% vs. 59%; 95% CI: -5.6, 19.5. However, ABC/3TC/ZDV did not meet the non-inferiority criterion compared to ATV+3TC/ZDV in the 48 subjects with baseline VL >/= 100,000 c/mL, 39% vs. 60%; 95% CI: -49.2, 7.4, respectively. Protocol-defined virologic failure was similar between groups.

P-gp, Bcrp, Mrp1 and Mrp4 are differentially expressed at the outer and inner BRB, resulting in an altered buy retrovir ability to limit substrate distribution at the retina as compared with the BBB. [(3) H]-Verapamil distribution is not P-gp-specific and involves a proton antiporter at both the BBB and BRB. However, this transport is concealed by P-gp at the BBB, but not at the BRB, where P-gp activity is reduced.

AZT resistance profiles of paired samples from HIV-infected patients were determined by a buy retrovir ligase chain reaction (LCR) assay. AZT resistance levels and surrogate markers of HIV disease progression (viral load and CD4 counts) were used to compare AZT-naive and AZT-experienced patients. The ability of a "mutant/wild-type HIV-1 quasi-species" index to predict viral load was assessed.

Ninety-six percent of the patients completed the 24-week study. In all three treatment groups, CD4+ cell counts rose at first and then fell gradually. The normalized area under the curve for the CD4+ count was greater with the three-drug buy retrovir combination than with either saquinavir and zidovudine (P=0.017) or zalcitabine and zidovudine (P<0.001). There were significantly greater reductions in plasma HIV with the three-drug combination than with the other regimens when peripheral-blood mononuclear cells were cultured for HIV and HIV RNA was assessed, and there were greater decreases in serum neopterin and beta2-microglobulin levels. There were no major differences in toxic effects among the three treatments.

Five hundred twenty-eight study children were alive at the age 18 months, and 491 (426 HIV uninfected and 65 infected) were enrolled into the follow-up study. Both exposed but uninfected children Alcohol And Neurontin and HIV-infected children were substantially below WHO growth standards for weight and height. Head circumference Z scores for uninfected children were comparable with WHO norms. Five-year survival rates were 93% for uninfected children versus 43% for infected children. Long-term safety and growth outcomes in the 2 study arms were similar.

Incidence of severe hepatotoxicity within three months of first-line antiretroviral therapy was low, suggesting Avelox Oral Dosage that routine measurement of transaminases may not be necessary in all patients initiating HAART in RLS. Routine measurement may be important in following patients on HAART and concurrent TB treatment as well as those with jaundice to avoid missing hepatotoxicity.

Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) strains having a dipeptide insertion between codons 69 and 70 of the viral reverse transcriptase (RT) have been observed in isolates from patients treated with 3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine (AZT) and other nucleoside analogues. These viruses contain additional mutations related to drug resistance and display reduced susceptibility to most nucleoside analogue inhibitors, including AZT. The mechanism of AZT resistance implies an increased ability of the multidrug-resistant (SS) RT to remove AZT-monophosphate (AZTMP) from blocked primers through a nucleotide-dependent reaction. We show that its higher ATP-dependent Oxytrol Tablets phosphorolytic activity is also detectable with primers terminated with 2',3'-didehydro-3'-deoxythymidine-5'-monophosphate (d4TMP) or 2',3'-dideoxythymidine-5'-monophosphate (ddTMP), but is significantly reduced when the dipeptide insertion is deleted. Removal of AZTMP, d4TMP and ddTMP can be inhibited by the next complementary deoxynucleoside triphosphate (dNTP). AZTMP removal reactions catalysed by SS RT were highly resistant to dNTP inhibition (IC(50)>0.25mM), while unblocking of d4TMP- and ddTMP-terminated primers was around tenfold more sensitive to inhibition by the next complementary dNTP. Both SS and mutant 2S0S RTs were able to unblock and extend primers terminated with 2',3'-dideoxycytidine-5'-monophosphate (ddCMP) in the presence of ATP, albeit very poorly. Under these conditions, none of the RTs was able to remove 2',3'-dideoxy-3'-thiacytidine-5'-monophosphate (3TCMP) from a terminated DNA primer. Resistance mediated by ATP-dependent phosphorolysis depends on the intracellular levels of dNTP. High levels as found in transformed cell lines (i.e. H-9, CEM lymphoblasts, SupT1 cells, etc.) may prevent repair of primers terminated with d4TMP. However, ATP-dependent phosphorolysis could be relevant for d4T resistance in cells having low levels of dNTPs. This proposal could explain why insertion-containing HIV-1 variants have been detected in the absence of AZT, during d4T treatment.

This observational study compared the probability of developing the first opportunistic infection among AIDS adult patients attending the "Programa SIDA de San Juan" who received either Bactrim Cystitis Dosage indinavir plus zidovudine and lamivudine (n = 45) or ritonavir plus zidovudine and lamivudine (n = 16) between August 1, 1996 and July 31, 1997. No significant differences were observed with respect to appearance of an opportunistic infection, increase in CD4 levels and decrease in viral load between both groups during the study period. However, an increased probability of being free of opportunistic infection after 10 months was observed for the indinavir group (p > 0.05). In addition, the probability of changing or interrupting prescribed therapy was 2 times higher for patients under ritonavir (p < 0.05). These results suggest the need to confirm these findings in a larger group of patients in a controlled clinical trial and to assess the short-term and long-term effects of both therapies among Puerto Rican AIDS patients.
