As little as 0.1% mutant plasmids in 10(6)-10(9) copies/ml of wild-type plasmids were detected. Among the 145 patients treated with lamivudine, 42 of them had mutants with percentages of 5-100%. In six discordant results between real-time PCR and DNA sequencing, real-time PCR detected mutants with percentages of 5-20%, which were concordant with subclone sequencing. Five of 98 lamividine-untreated patients had mutants of 10-20% in wild-type virus populations. Compared to DNA sequencing, real-time PCR was fast and cost-effective.
Overall, the response to peginterferon alfa-2a among patients with lamivudine resistance was suboptimal. HBeAg seroconversion rate at week 72 by 48 weeks peginterferon alfa-2a treatment was higher than continuous adefovir therapy. Monitoring HBsAg levels can help to predict response to peginterferon alfa-2a.

The rate of viral rebound (two consecutive values > 400 copies/ml) was 4.9/100 person-years [95% confidence interval (CI), 4.0-5.8] for patients who were naive pre-HAART and 8.0/100 person-years (95% CI, 7.0-9.0) for those who were experienced with nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI) pre-HAART. The rate of rebound was significantly higher in those taking nelfinavir than in those taking efavirenz, both in patients who were naive pre-HAART and those who were NRTI experienced [adjusted rate ratios, 2.83 (95% CI, 1.51-5.31) and 2.86 (95% CI, 1.65-5.00), respectively]. Among patients who were naive pre-HAART, those on abacavir had no evidence of a raised risk of viral rebound (adjusted rate ratio 1.17; 95% CI, 0.51-2.69), but in those with pre-HAART NRTI experience the rate was markedly raised (adjusted rate ratio, 4.48; 95% CI, 2.51-8.00). A similar picture was seen when comparing those on nevirapine with those on efavirenz, although the elevated rate ratio in pre-HAART experienced patients was of lower magnitude (adjusted rate ratio, 1.93). There was no strong evidence that rebound rates differed significantly for any NRTI pairs compared with zidovudine/lamivudine.

HIV infection and HAART are independent risk factors for early carotid atherosclerosis. Assuming a risk ratio similar to that in large population-based cohorts, the observed IMT elevation suggests that vascular risk is 4-14% greater and the "vascular age" 4-5 years higher in HIV-positive subjects. The underlying mechanisms remain to be clarified.
The search identified 28 articles involving 5 different prophylactic regimens covering 1478 participants.

Natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma is a rare form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that is seen with increased frequency in HIV infection and in transplant recipients. This case report describes an unusual case of extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma in a patient with advanced HIV disease in which gastric involvement was a significant feature.

35 advanced HIV-1 patients were enrolled. The boosted double-PI regimen was well tolerated. Twenty-two (63%) of the 35 patients had a > 0.8 log(10) decrease in HIV viral load at week 4. After 48 weeks of follow-up, the 22 patients who remained on the study therapy had an average decrease in viral load of 1 log(10) and had a median increase in CD4 cells of 60 cell/microL. Multiple logistic regression analysis indicated that genotypic resistance to both PIs and the week-3 trough concentrations of saquinavir were associated with virologic outcome at week 4. The presence of > or = 6 lopinavir mutations [odds ratio (OR) 0.03; 95% CI 0.01 to 0.79] and the 48V mutation (OR 0.01; 95%CI <0.01 to 0.88) was independently associated with lower odds of achieving an early response, whereas a higher saquinavir concentration at week 3 (OR 8.36; 95% CI 1.28 to 54.70) was associated with greater odds of an early response.

In an attempt to identify a suitable procedure for the prevention and management of HBV reactivation, the administration of lamivudine over the course was tested in two patients.

This review starts by providing a brief summary of the history of HIV-1 IN inhibitors. The authors follow this with details of the discovery and preclinical and clinical developments of dolutegravir. Finally, the authors provide details of dolutegravir's post-launch including the launch of the combination pill of dolutegravir, abacavir and lamivudine in August 2014.

These data, limited to patients with compensated liver disease, indicate that adefovir dipivoxil alone or in combination with ongoing lamivudine therapy provides effective antiviral therapy in patients with lamivudine-resistant HBV.

Medical records and radiographs of 796 biopsy-confirmed CHB patients were reviewed retrospectively for a median period of 107 months (6-218) (median age 34 years (18-64), male:female 636:160). Eighty-five per cent (680/796) of patients were treated with antiviral agents such as interferon alpha and/or lamivudine. All the patients were followed at a regular interval of 3-6 months with routine laboratory tests. Abdominal imagings together with serum alpha-fetoprotein were checked every 6-12 months to detect new HCC. Necroinflammation and fibrosis were assessed semiquantitatively. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to identify significant risk factors for HCC.
1. Prophylaxis using the combination of lamivudine and high-dose intravenous hepatitis B immunoglobulin (approximately 10,000 IU monthly) reduces the long-term risk of recurrence of hepatitis B in hepatitis B surface antigen-positive transplant recipients to 5% to 10%. However, this therapy is expensive and inconvenient for patients. 2. Recent studies have shown that similar results can be obtained, at far less cost, with much lower doses of intramuscular hepatitis B immune globulin (400-800 IU monthly) in combination with pretransplant and posttransplant lamivudine therapy. 3. The development of lamivudine resistance pre-transplant can lead to hepatic decompensation and increases the risk of posttransplant recurrence in patients receiving hepatitis B immune globulin/lamivudine prophylaxis. Newer nucleos(t)ide analogues with lower resistance rates such as entecavir, adefovir, and tenofovir should therefore replace lamivudine in hepatitis B prophylaxis. 4. Combination therapy with these newer agents and low-dose intramuscular hepatitis B immune globulin is likely to be the most cost effective hepatitis B immune globulin-containing regimen for the prevention of hepatitis B recurrence post-transplant. 5. Some form of hepatitis B virus prophylaxis needs be continued indefinitely post-transplant. However, the use of antivirals with very low rates of drug resistance will make it possible to stop hepatitis B immune globulin therapy in many patients currently receiving hepatitis B immune globulin/nucleos(t)ide combination therapy.
