This study addresses the dynamic of viral load rebound and immune system changes in a cohort of eight consecutive HIV-1-infected patients in very early stages [all the patients were taking highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART} and were recruited in the coordinating center from a larger study] who decided to discontinue HAART after 1 year of treatment and effective virologic response. The safety of this procedure and the outcome with reintroduction of the same treatment was also investigated.

One or more mutations associated with primary resistance to NA were seen in 10 antiretroviral-naive (13.3%) patients in 1993 and in nine (12%) in 1997. In all but two cases, they were associated with ZDV resistance. In contrast, all but six (96%) of the antiretroviral-experienced subjects harboured drug-resistant mutant viruses. The codon 184 mutation (associated with resistance to 3TC) was detected in 92% of patients treated with 3TC, but also in 18% of those treated with only ddI or ddC. The codon 215 mutation was found in 67.3% of patients who had been exposed to ZDV; the codon 69 mutation was found in 15% of patients treated with ddC; and the codon 74 mutation was found in only 7.2% of patients treated with ddI. Finally, the codon 151 multidrug resistant mutation was found in four (2.7%) of 150 patients with a long-term exposure to NA.

This study shows that the RT KKK nucleotide template in subtype C viruses can lead to the spurious detection of K65R by highly sensitive PCR-dependent sequencing techniques. However, the study is also consistent with the subtype C nucleotide template being inherently responsible for increased polymerization-induced K65R mutations in vivo.

The rtA181T/sW172* variant has a secretory defect and exerts a dominant negative effect on wild-type HBV virion secretion. The selection of rtA181T/sW172* reduced the typical extent of virological breakthrough, resulting in a missed diagnosis of drug resistance if viral load was used as the only criterion for drug failure, necessitating HBV polymerase chain reaction sequencing or other genotypic methods to diagnose antiviral drug resistance in these cases.

CD8+ T lymphocytes may mediate important host responses to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection by human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-restricted cytotoxicity and production of soluble HIV suppressor factors. CD8+ lymphocytes are also important for the suppression of many latent pathogens responsible for opportunistic disease in HIV-infected patients. There has been no systematic analysis of the responses of CD8+ lymphocyte counts to antiretroviral therapy. We compared CD8+ lymphocyte responses in seven trials of nucleoside or non-nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors and in two trials of ritonavir, a HIV protease inhibitor. Nucleoside analog and non-nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor monotherapy resulted in no substantial changes in CD8+ counts relative to baseline or placebo. Combination nucleoside analog therapy resulted in variable peak responses (-145 to +240 cells/mm3), which remained significantly above baseline for 0 to 12 weeks. In contrast, ritonavir monotherapy caused a peak increase of 892 CD8+ cells/mm3, which remained significantly above baseline for 32 weeks. There was a significant correlation (Rs 0.61, p = 0.01) between the peak CD4+ cell and CD8+ responses to each therapy, but no significant correlation between the peak viral load responses and peak CD8+ cell responses. These findings suggest that the greater CD8+ response seen with ritonavir may be due to its specific inhibition of HIV protease and also that the CD8+ response is dependent on new CD4+ cell production. The CD8+ lymphocyte proliferation observed with protease inhibitor therapy could result in improved suppression of HIV replication by the immune system and should be confirmed in a prospective trial comparing protease inhibitors with both nucleoside and non-nucleoside analog therapies.

Virological breakthrough was observed in both patients. Patient I acquired sustained virological response after switching to ETV rescue therapy, whereas Patient II suffered from virological breakthrough after 72 weeks of ETV therapy. Each virological breakthrough was accompanied with the replacement of previous drug susceptible dominant quasispecies with a drug resistant variant, indicating a close correlation between quasispecies composition and drug susceptibility. The rtL180M+S202G+M204V triple mutant, which was most likely a descendant of the LAM resistant rtL180M+M204V variant, was closely correlated with ETV resistant in Patient II.

Treatment with ZDV/3TC/LPV/r versus NVP/LPV/r differentially affects glucose and lipid metabolism. The ZDV/3TC/LPV/r regimen induced peripheral insulin resistance, a transient increase in basal lipolysis and a transient decrease in insulin-mediated inhibition of lipolysis, whereas hepatic insulin sensitivity improved with the NVP/LPV/r regimen.

epivir drug classification

Lipoatrophy in HIV patients can result from prolonged exposure to thymidine analogues. Mitochondrial toxicity leading to dysregulated adipogenesis and increased cell death has been proposed as a leading factor in the etiology of peripheral fat loss. We hypothesized that thymidine analogues interfere with autophagy, a lysosomal degradation pathway, which is important for mitochondrial quality control, cellular survival, and adipogenesis. We assessed the effects of zidovudine (AZT), stavudine (d4T), and lamivudine (3TC) on autophagy in eukaryotic cells and adipocytes (3T3-F442A) by fluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry. The effects were compared to interventions with established genetic and pharmacological inhibitors of autophagy and correlated to assessments of cell viability, proliferation, and differentiation. AZT and d4T, but not 3TC, inhibited both constitutive and induced autophagic activity in adipocytes. This inhibition was associated with accumulation of dysfunctional mitochondria, increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, increased apoptosis, decreased proliferation, and impaired adipogenic conversion. Autophagy inhibition was dose and time dependent and detectable at therapeutic drug concentrations. Similar phenotypic changes were obtained when genetic or pharmacological inhibition of autophagy was employed. Our data suggest that thymidine analogues disturb adipocyte function through inhibition of autophagy. This novel mechanism potentially contributes to peripheral fat loss in HIV-infected patients.

Reactivation of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a major cause of morbidity and mortality after renal transplantation. Although lamivudine is an effective treatment for chronic hepatitis B, the development of drug resistance due to mutations in the tyrosine-methionine-aspartate-aspartate (YMDD) motif is a major concern, especially in immunosuppressed patients who require prolonged therapy. Treatment with famciclovir has not been effective in the majority of patients who developed lamivudine resistance due to methionine-to-valine mutation at position 550, because this mutation has been uniformly associated with leucine-to-methionine mutation at position 526, a mutation that is associated with resistance to famciclovir. We describe a renal transplant recipient with an uncommon lamivudine-resistant HBV variant, in which methionine-to-valine/isoleucine mutation at position 550 was associated with wild-type sequence at position 526. The severe hepatitic flare consequent to the lamivudine resistance in this patient was successfully treated with famciclovir, indicating that both M550V and M550I mutants with preserved wild-type sequence at position 526 of HBV reverse transcriptase are susceptible to famciclovir. Our experience shows that famciclovir can be useful in selected patients with otherwise potentially fatal hepatitic flares related to lamivudine resistance, and that analysis of mutations in the HBV variant can be helpful in the choice of antiviral therapy.

Coinfection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV) is associated with considerable liver disease morbidity and mortality. Emerging HIV epidemics in areas of high HBV endemicity such as Asia are expanding the population with HIV/HBV coinfection. Limited randomized trial data exist to support current guidelines for HBV combination therapy in HIV/HBV coinfection. The objective of this prospective randomized clinical trial was to compare the strategy of HBV monotherapy with lamivudine (LAM) or tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) versus HBV combination therapy with LAM/TDF in antiretroviral-naïve HIV/HBV-coinfected subjects in Thailand. Thirty-six HIV/HBV-coinfected subjects initiating highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) were randomized to either LAM (arm 1), TDF (arm 2), or LAM/TDF (arm 3) as HBV-active drugs within HAART. At week 48, time-weighted area under the curve analysis revealed that the median HBV DNA reduction from baseline was 4.07 log(10) c/mL in arm 1, 4.57 log(10) c/mL in arm 2, and 4.73 log(10) c/mL in arm 3 (P = 0.70). HBV DNA suppressed to <3 log(10) c/mL in 46% in arm 1, 92% in arm 2, and 91% in arm 3 (P = 0.013, intent-to-treat analysis). HBV-resistant changes were detected in two subjects, both in arm 1. Hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) loss was observed in 33% of HBeAg-positive subjects, and 8% experienced hepatitis B surface antigen loss. Hepatic flare was observed in 25% of subjects.

Fifty-four HIV-infected children (ages 3.1 to 18.9 years) were enrolled. The indinavir free-base suspension was less bioavailable than the dry-filled capsule formulation, and therapy was changed to capsules in all children. Hematuria was the most common side effect, occurring in 7 (13%) children, and associated with nephrolithiasis in 1 patient. The combination of indinavir, lamivudine, and zidovudine was well tolerated. The median CD4 cell count increased after 2 weeks of indinavir monotherapy by 64 cells/mm3, and this was sustained at all dose levels. Plasma ribonucleic acid levels decreased rapidly in a dose-dependent way, but increased toward baseline after a few weeks of indinavir monotherapy.

Prevalence of lipoatrophy varied from 7% to 24%, according to the definition. After adjustment for gender, age, treatment duration and CD4(+) T-cell count, the risk of lipoatrophy in the d4T(30) group was lower than in the d4T(30/40) group (odds ratio [OR] 0.3, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.1-0.8 with the large definition and OR 0.2, 95% CI 0.0-0.8 with the strict definition) and was comparable to that of the AZT group (OR 1.0, 95% CI 0.2-4.6 and OR 1.0, 95% CI 0.4-2.2 with the large and strict definitions, respectively). The risk was significantly higher in the d4T(30/40) group compared with the AZT group (OR 2.9, 95% CI 1.3-6.4 with the large definition and OR 5.5, 95% CI 1.3-23.5 with the strict definition).

At baseline, most patients had a normal neutrophil count and 80% of them were already receiving cotrimoxazole. An unexpectedly high rate of grade 3-4 neutropenia occurred shortly after introduction of AZT. Almost all of the persistent severe neutropenia disappeared after cotrimoxazole was stopped. This suggests an accentuated drug interaction between the two drugs in these sub-Saharan African individuals. Grade 3-4 anaemia was much less frequent, but remained the first cause of AZT discontinuation.

To evaluate survival according to use of different nucleoside drugs in a routine clinical setting, we studied a large group of zidovudine-treated patients seen in clinics across Europe. A total of 3128 subjects was recruited to the observational, prospective EuroSIDA study in May 1994. These were consecutive patients (up to a predefined limit) seen at outpatient clinics in 37 centers from 16 European countries and followed at 6-month intervals by use of standardized forms completed by clinicians at the respective centers. This report concerns 2367 subjects who began antiretroviral therapy with a regime that included zidovudine either before study entry or during the course of follow-up. Cox proportional hazards models were fitted, with use of other antiretroviral drugs, CD4 count, and date of development of AIDS fitted as time-dependent covariates. Survival times from start of therapy were left truncated at study entry to avoid survival bias. In addition to zidovudine, antiretroviral drugs used included didanosine (ddI) (n = 1119; median 1.6 years after starting zidovudine), dideoxycytidine (ddC) (n = 592; median 1.9 years after starting zidovudine), stavudine (d4T) (n = 241; median 2.9 years after starting zidovudine) and lamivudine (3TC) (n = 33 ; median 2.7 years after starting zidovudine). Of the 2367 patients, 613 died during follow-up. Overall, risk of death was reduced in those zidovudine-treated patients who began at least one other nucleoside analogue drug with or after taking zidovudine (relative hazard [RH], 0.61; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.51-0.72, adjusting for CD4 count, development of AIDS, and age). Fitting each drug separately, there was a larger association with reduced mortality for starting 3TC (RH, 0.41; 95% CI, 0.28-0.62) than for starting ddl (RH, 0.79; 95% CI, 0.67-0.93), ddC (RH, 0.74; 95% CI, 0.59-0.92) or d4T (RH, 0.67; 95% CI, 0.49-0.91). These results suggest that the beneficial effect of nucleoside combination therapy identified in controlled trials can be seen in routine clinical practice.

epivir pediatric dosing 2016-09-28

The efficacy of lamivudine (LAM) at 100 mg/d for 1 year in normalizing serum ALT levels and suppressing HBV DNA has been demonstrated in many studies. However, frequent relapses make long-term results modest. In the present study, we evaluated the efficacy of buy epivir LAM administered for 3 years in patients with chronic active anti-HBe-positive hepatitis. Thirty-four patients with chronic active anti-HBe-positive hepatitis were treated with LAM (100 mg) once daily for 3 years. Before treatment, all patients demonstrated serum ALT levels >2 times normal levels for >6 months and HBV DNA positivity >5 pg/mL as determined by the sandwich hybridization test for nucleic acid. Both ALT and HBV DNA were monitored during therapy. After 12 months of therapy, 24 of 34 patients (70.6%) showed evidence of HBV DNA clearance and normal ALT levels; 22 of 34 (64.7%) and 19 of 34 (55.8%) patients maintained a complete response after 2 and 3 years of therapy, respectively. The long-term LAM therapy (>1 year) was not associated with an increase in the response of intially nonresponder patients. The YMDD variant emerged in 17.6% of patients in the first year, in 35.2% during the second year, and 52.9% during the third year of treatment. LAM was well tolerated during the 3-year therapy in all patients. Patients with chronic active anti-HBe-positive hepatitis demonstrated that the LAM response rate tends to decrease over time due to the emergence of YMDD variants.

We studied the records of 55 children. The sex ratio was 0.9, and the primary opportunistic infections were respiratory infections and malaria. At treatment initiation, their average age was 6 years and 3 months, the average CD4 buy epivir T cell count 358/mm(3), and the mean weight 12.9 kg. The hemoglobin level was less than 8 g/dL in 31%. All children received a nutritional kit monthly. The antiretroviral therapy for 52 children was a combination of stavudine, lamivudine, and nevirapine. The adherence rate during the first 12 months was 80% (44/55 children). The mean weight gain was 860 g (below -3SD) at 3 months, 1,550 g (between -3SD and -2SD) at 6 months, and 1 270 g (between -2SD and -1SD) at 12 months of treatment. The severe acute malnutrition rate fell from 60% at treatment initiation to 56% at 3 months, 47% at 6 months, and 25% at 12 months. Also after 12 months, the CD4 T cell count had risen in 60% of the children. The main side effects were peripheral neuropathy (29%) and headaches (18%). Eight children died (14%) during the follow-up.

Lamivudine can select resistant hepatitis B virus (HBV) tyrosine-methionine-aspartate-aspartate aminoacid motif (YMDD) mutants, which usually disappear in few months after lamivudine withdrawal. We report an unusual case of a male adult patient who showed a prolonged persistence of the M204I mutation up to 24 months after lamivudine withdrawal followed by the emergence of new distinct buy epivir YMDD mutants (namely M204V, V207L). Only 42 months after lamivudine withdrawal wild-type YMDD motif became dominant over the YMDD mutants. To our knowledge, a so prolonged persistence of a YMDD mutant and also the emergence of new YMDD mutants many months after drug withdrawal are unusual.

This prospective, multicentre study was conducted between September and October 2003 in 38 French departments of internal medicine, infectious disease and hepatogastroenterology and included 406 consecutive HBV-infected patients (positive HBsAg), half of whom were HIV-infected (53%). The aim was to outline the main characteristics of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) co-infected patients in French hospitals. HBV-HIV co-infected patients (85% were receiving HAART; mean CD4 count 447+/-245/microl, HIV RNA load<400 copies/ml, 67% of patients buy epivir ), compared to HIV-negative patients, were more often male, injecting drug users, HBeAg-positive and HCV-HIV co-infected (P<10(-4)). They underwent liver biopsy less often (31% vs. 51%, P<10(-4)), particularly those with severe immunodeficiency. They received anti-HBV treatment more often (75% vs. 45.7%, P<10(-4)), mainly lamivudine and tenofovir. Significant improvements in the management of such patients are awaited mainly in the appraisal of liver disease by either liver biopsy or non-invasive alternatives to liver biopsy.

We have prospectively evaluated psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients for (1) seropositivity for former viral infections and seroconversion and (2) efficacy of cyclosporine A (CsA) alone or in combination with other immunosuppressants in a time period of 12 months. Screening included HBV antibodies and antigens, HCV antibodies and RNA, HSV 1-2, HZV, EBV, and CMV IgG, and IgM, HHV-6 DNA, and HIV 1-2 antibodies. PsA was evaluated by the Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI), the Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI), and the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). At baseline, 126 (56%) out of 225 evaluable patients had 2 or more seropositivities indicative of former infections, and 31 patients (13.8%) presented seropositivity for HCV, HBV, HSV-1 and -2, HHV-6, buy epivir EBV, or parvovirus infection; one of them, positive for HBAg, was treated with lamivudine, while the remaining 30 received no specific treatment. None of the 31 patients developed virus reactivation. A reduction (P < 0.001) of PASI, BASDAI, and VAS scores was observed at 6 and 12 months. The treatment of PsA with CsA as monotherapy or in combination was safe and effective. In vitro experiments and clinical findings, including those from our study, suggest that CsA as monotherapy or in combination with biologics might be the treatment of choice in PsA HCV-positive patients.

Global adherence level was 85.7% (54/63) and was significantly higher for children in residential care (approaching 100%) compared to 76.3% for children in family care (p = 0.008). Children had median age 7.9 years (range 0.8 - 19.4 years) and 57% were male. Median duration on ART was 18 buy epivir .3 months (range 0.1 - 123.8 months). Median CD4 count and per cent available for 95.2% (60/63) and 92.1% (58/63) children were 440 cells per microL (IQR 268-897 cells/pL) and 24.9% (IQR 15.6 - 42.7%), respectively. Median viral load was 9.60 x 103 copies/ml (IQR 0.05 x 10(3) - 52.50 x 10(3)) with 16% (10/63) having viral loads < or = 50 copies/ml. Children in residential care (n=26), receiving directly observed therapy had higher CD4 counts (p = 0.006) and CD4 per cent (p < or = 0.001). Factors associated with non-adherence were primarily caregiver related, especially long work hours (p = 0.002) and nausea as a side effect of ART (p = 0.007). Non-adherence was positively correlated with missing clinic appointments (r = 0.342, p = 0.009) and increasing age of child (r = 0.310, p = 0.013).

Of the multitude of reverse transcriptase inhibitors and protease inhibitors that have been pursued for the treatment of HIV infections, nine compounds (viz. zidovudine, didanosine, zalcitabine, stavudine, lamivudine, saquinavir, ritonavir, indinavir and nevirapine) have been approved and several others (i.e. adefovir dipivoxyl [bis(POM)-PMEA], PMPA, bis(POC)-PMPA, 1592U89, delavirdine, loviride, MKC-442, nelfinavir and VX-478) are under clinical development. All these compounds can select for mutations in the reverse transcriptase or protease that confer various degrees of resistance or diminished susceptibility to the compounds. Both the reverse transcriptase and protease are able to accumulate multiple mutations in their genome, thus engendering high-level resistance. To avoid drug resistance from emerging it is recommended to use from the beginning combinations of the different drugs at sufficiently high (that is maximal tolerated) doses. If installed as soon as possible after infection, when it has become evident that the virus is replicating, these drug combinations may achieve a pronounced and sustained virus suppression. This should be reflected by a dramatic reduction of viral load in both the plasma and lymphnodes. With the most effective drug combination regimens, the viral load may even fall under the threshold of detection, and this may clinically translate into an arrest or prevention of Diovan Starting Dose progression to AIDS.

Success in treating hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection with nucleoside analogues drugs is limited by the emergence of drug-resistant viral strains Prednisone 100 Mg upon prolonged therapy. In addition to mutation patterns in the viral polymerase gene, host factors are assumed to contribute to failure of treatment in chronic HBV infections. The aim of this study was to analyze the correlation between efficacy of antiviral therapy and the prevalence of HBV pretreatment drug-resistant variants. We also analyzed the role of heterogeneity in the promoter region of the IL-10 on the HBV pol/s gene polymorphisms and efficacy of analogues-driven therapy.

HBV genotypes B, C, D, and non-classified genotypes were found in Guangxi Zhuang population. accounting for 25.6%, 47.4%, 58.3%, and 16.0%, respectively. Seventy-four cases were CD-, CB-, BD-mixed genotypes (47.7%). Forty-six (29.5%) cases had YMDD mutations. Genotype B was mostly found in mild and moderate CHB patients. Genotypes C, D and mixed genotype mostly occurred in severe CHB cases. Genotypes D and CD HBV-infected patients had higher ALT and HBV DNA than patients with other types of HBV infection. There was no significant difference among the genotypes in YMDD mutations, clinical types, ALT and HBV DNA level. Non-classified types geno had a significantly lower positive rate of HBeAg than other genotypes (c2=12.841, P<0.05). There was no significant difference in ALT recovery rate, HBV DNA load, HBeAg, and HBeAg/HBeAb conversion rate, 48 wk after LAM treatment between groups of genotypes D, CD, and non-classified type.

To evaluate functional T-cell recovery during combination therapy with ritonavir, lamivudine (3TC), and zidovudine (ZDV), peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were obtained from 4 HIV-1 infected patients (baseline values: 40 403 CD4+ T-cells/microl; 4.6-6.4 log HIV-1 RNA copies/ml) before HAART administration (week -1) and after 5, 20, and 37 weeks of treatment on average. In vitro lymphoproliferative responses (LPR) to C. albicans, tetanus toxoid, and M. tuberculosis protein purified derivative (PPD), as recall antigens (Ag), and to recombinant HIV-1 Gag-p24 and p17 were measured by 3H-Thymidine incorporation. LPR to recall Ag, almost undetectable before therapy, appeared in all four patients during HAART soon after maximal load reduction was achieved. LPR to Gag-p17, but not to p24, became also detectable in three patients, even though remaining weak. In conclusion, improved T-lymphocyte function during HAART was achieved probably mostly as a result of lower virus inhibitory factors and cytokines.
