Genetic tests has been suggested to reduce side effects related to Nevirapine(NVP), a commonly prescribed component of highly active antiretroviral therapy(HAART) in developing countries. This clinical trials is designed to determine the efficacy and the cost-effectiveness of this approach in the developing countries setting.
NVP-based HAART and efavirenz(EFV)-based HAART will be provided through Thai national universal health coverage. Information of the prescribed drug will be collected, and monitoring for the compliance with the prescribed highly active antiretroviral therapy will be conducted.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the reduction in incidences of NVP associated cutaneous side effects by genotype based personalized prescription. The volunteers will be monitored for any solicited and non-solicited adverse effects for 6 months after drug administration, with first 6 weeks intensive monitoring for cutaneous adverse reactions. Laboratory safety profiles (Complete Blood Count(CBC), Alanine transaminase(ALT), Aspartate transaminase(AST), Blood Urea Nitrogen(BUN), creatinine, direct bilirubin, total bilirubin, lactate dehydrogenase, alkaline phosphatase) will be assessed during the intensive monitoring period (6 weeks).
Descriptive statistics will be used to evaluate the conduct of the study. Analysis variables will include overall follow-up rate, drug compliance, and events of protocol violation.
Laboratory and safety data will be presented using comparative statistics for each study group and compared within and between groups using standard parametric or non-parametric comparison tests, i.e., McNemar's test or paired t-test as appropriate.
Comparison of rate of cutaneous adverse reaction, hepatitis and severe cutaneous adverse reaction(SCAR) will be made with chi-square test. Variable that shown significant different between the "standard of care" or control group and the "genetic test" or intervention group will adjusted for the final analysis with Poisson logistic regression.
The overall rate of adverse events in all participants will be monitored whether the rate of adverse events is lower than the predefined criteria. The extension of trial may be considered based on the rate of adverse events.

The rash on our patient's abdomen was not itchy or painful, but it had persisted for more than a year and continued to spread. A biopsy confirmed our suspicions.
Zosteriform rash in cancer patients provides objective clues to the process of reinnervation of the reconstructed breast. This rash should also raise suspicion for metastasis, which can be confused wi...
Our patient's pruritic rash was spreading throughout his trunk and arms. An acute infection 10 days earlier shed light on the diagnosis.

Abnormally high temperature intentionally induced in living things regionally or whole body. It is most often induced by radiation (heat waves, infra-red), ultrasound, or drugs.
Artificially induced UTERINE CONTRACTION. Generally, LABOR, OBSTETRIC is induced with the intent to cause delivery of the fetus and termination of pregnancy.
A subacute or chronic inflammatory disease of muscle and skin, marked by proximal muscle weakness and a characteristic skin rash. The illness occurs with approximately equal frequency in children and adults. The skin lesions usually take the form of a purplish rash (or less often an exfoliative dermatitis) involving the nose, cheeks, forehead, upper trunk, and arms. The disease is associated with a complement mediated intramuscular microangiopathy, leading to loss of capillaries, muscle ischemia, muscle-fiber necrosis, and perifascicular atrophy. The childhood form of this disease tends to evolve into a systemic vasculitis. Dermatomyositis may occur in association with malignant neoplasms. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1405-6)
Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.
A change in the CERVIX UTERI with respect to its readiness to relax. The cervix normally becomes softer, more flexible, more distensible, and shorter in the final weeks of PREGNANCY. These cervical changes can also be chemically induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
Standard antiretroviral therapy (ART) consists of the combination of at least three antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to maximally suppress the HIV virus and stop the progression of HIV disease. Huge reductions have been seen in rates of death and suffering whe...
