Paper supported by ART-CC staff on immunological response in HIV-2 patients published in Journal of the International AIDS Society
The paper "Immunologic response in treatment-naïve HIV-2-infected patients: the IeDEA West Africa cohort" has now been published in the Journal of the International AIDS Society. This paper was supported by work from ART-CC funded staff.
In this observational study using African data, we looked at CD4 count response to treatment over 12 months between regimens. It was found that boosted PI-containing regimens had better immunological response compared to triple NRTI combinations and unboosted PI-based regimens at 12 months
