Summary of "Association of Virologic Failure and Nonnucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitor Resistance Found in Antiretroviral-Naive Children Infected With Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Given Efavirenz-Based Treatment."

Among 66 antiretroviral-naive children aged <3 years with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or coinfected with HIV and tuberculosis and initiating efavirenz-based antiretroviral therapy (ART), non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) resistance was detected before ART in 5 (7.6%). Virologic failure occurred in 2 of these children; they were last tested at 16 and 24 weeks of ART. Pre-ART NNRTI resistance was not associated with virologic failure.

Assessment of antiretroviral third agent virologic durability after initiation of first antiretroviral regimen.

Information on the virologic durability of modern antiretroviral regimens is important to clinicians. We aimed to describe virologic durability of first-line integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI...

Follow on-based optimization of the biphenyl-DAPYs as HIV-1 nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors against the wild-type and mutant strains.

The present work follows our preliminary discovery of biphenyl diarylpyrimidines (DAPYs) as HIV-1 nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors. Further structural optimization of biphenyl-DAPYs led ...

Nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor backbones and pregnancy outcomes.

The aim of this study was to investigate whether specific nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) backbones are associated with risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes among pregnant women starti...

Integrase inhibitor-based regimens result in more rapid virologic suppression rates among treatment-naïve human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients compared to non-nucleoside and protease inhibitor-based regimens in a real-world clinical setting: A retrospective cohort study.

The integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI) class of antiretroviral therapy (ART) may result in faster time to virologic suppression compared with regimens that contain protease inhibitors (PIs) o...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A diarylpyrimidine derivative and REVERSE TRANSCRIPTASE INHIBITOR with antiviral activity against HIV-1 that is used in the treatment of HIV INFECTIONS. It is also used in combination with other ANTI-HIV AGENTS, since ANTIVIRAL DRUG RESISTANCE emerges rapidly when it is used alone.

An adenine analog REVERSE TRANSCRIPTASE INHIBITOR with antiviral activity against HIV-1 and HEPATITIS B. It is used to treat HIV INFECTIONS and CHRONIC HEPATITIS B, in combination with other ANTIVIRAL AGENTS, due to the emergence of ANTIVIRAL DRUG RESISTANCE when it is used alone.

DNA sequences that form the coding region for retroviral enzymes including reverse transcriptase, protease, and endonuclease/integrase. "pol" is short for polymerase, the enzyme class of reverse transcriptase.

Inhibitors of reverse transcriptase (RNA-DIRECTED DNA POLYMERASE), an enzyme that synthesizes DNA on an RNA template.

A reverse transcriptase encoded by the POL GENE of HIV. It is a heterodimer of 66 kDa and 51 kDa subunits that are derived from a common precursor protein. The heterodimer also includes an RNAse H activity (RIBONUCLEASE H, HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS) that plays an essential role the viral replication process.
