Deeks, MD University of California, San Francisco Pathogenesis of drug-resistant HIV: Pathogenesis of drug-resistant HIV Two linked biologically focused cohorts SCOPE: San Francisco, USA UARTO: Mbarara, Uganda Factors known to be predictive of outcome in setting of drug-resistant HIV include Change in viral load Regimen type Viral fitness Immune activation What role will these have in resource poor regions?Virologic responses to first HAART are comparable in South Africa and Switzerland: Virologic responses to first HAART are comparable in South Africa and Switzerland Egger et a; CROI 2007 Month after first VL < 500 0 6 12 18 24 0 20 40 60 80 100 % experienceing Virologic failure Switzerland South AfricaTime to treatment modification differs between regions, however: Time to treatment modification differs between regions, however Egger et a; CROI 2007 Months after starting ART 0 6 12 18 24 % with treatment change 0 20 40 60 Switzerland South Africa Regimen switches more common in Swiss Cohort, presumably because of greater number of options and aggressive management of failureSlide5: Risk of death during HAART higher in Sub-Saharan Africa compared to industrialized countries unadjusted HR adjusted HR (adjusted for cohort, age, sex, baseline CD4, ART-regimen, disease stage) Reference (industrialized countries) Months from starting ART 1 2 3-4 5-6 7-12 13-24 25-36 37-48 Relative mortality rate (95% CI) 0.5 1 2 4 8 16 Braitstein Lancet 2006 Egger et a; CROI 2007Why would clinical outcomes be so different in resource poor vs. resource rich regions (after controlling for baseline CD4)? : Why would clinical outcomes be so different in resource poor vs. resource rich regions (after controlling for baseline CD4)?

T cell activation and inflammation are important determinants of outcome, and expected to be higher in resource poor compared to rich regions Failure of standard first HAART regimens in absence of HIV RNA monitoring will result in emergence and transmission of MDR HIV, negatively impacting both the individual and community levelSlide30: Implications Careful HIV RNA monitoring—which may be qualitative at level of ~ 200 to 500 copies—may be even more important in resource limited regions Aid for AIDS: Probability of virologic in a cohort of private sector patients followed in S.
