Studies of viral dynamics are important to our understanding of the pathogenesis of HIV-1 infection and in assessment of the potency of antiretroviral therapies. Although many different viral dynamic models and methods for estimating viral dynamic parameters have been proposed and used in various studies, none has been entirely satisfactory. We propose here a segmental model to describe the viral load, and estimate the dynamic parameters by using a mixed-effects model. We address the relation between the baseline viral load and the decay rate of the first phase of viral load decay, and divide patients into three categories on the basis of their changing viral load patterns.

    The standard view postulates a bell-shaped relationship between adherence to therapy and development of drug-resistant human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), with a resistance peak at a moderate level of adherence. This relationship has not been confirmed empirically. We statistically modeled the...

    Background: The asymptomatic phase of HIV infection is characterised by a slow decline of peripheral blood CD4(+) T cells. Why this decline is slow is not understood. One potential explanation is that the low average rate of homeostatic proliferation or immune activation dictates...

    The arrival of new antiviral drugs to treat chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections has given rise to great expectations along with concerns regarding the selection of drug-resistant variants. Many lessons learnt from HIV therapeutics can be helpful for designing...

    The association between oral human papillomavirus 16 (HPV16) DNA load and infection clearance was evaluated among 88 individuals with oral HPV16 infection who were identified within a prospective cohort of 1470 HIV-infected and uninfected individuals. Oral rinse specimens were collected...

  • Higher concentration of HIV RNA in rectal mucosa secretions than in blood and seminal plasma, among men who have sex with men, independent of antiretroviral therapy. Zuckerman, Richard A.; Whittington, William L.H.; Celum, Connie L.; Collis, Tarquin K.; Luccheti, Aldo J.; Sanchez, Jorge L.; Hughes, James P.; Sanchez, Jose L.; Coombs, Robert W.; Lucchetti, Aldo J // Journal of Infectious Diseases;7/1/2004, Vol. 190 Issue 1, p156 

    High levels of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in rectal secretions and semen likely increase the risk of HIV transmission. HIV-infected men who have sex with men made 2-3 study visits, over 4 weeks, to assess rectal, seminal, and plasma levels of HIV RNA. Mixed-effects models estimated the...
