This article was originally published in PharmAsia News
Yale University Prof. Michael Kozal and his team have discovered several uncommon, drug-resistant strains of HIV. By utilizing a new type of gene sequencing, the researchers were able to spot drug resistant strains far earlier than was possible using older methods. The study examined the viral makeup of 258 candidates by using 454 Life Science's Genome Sequencer? and Ultra Deep Sequencing technology to identify forms of HIV that made up less than one percent of a patient's viral load. Previous forms of analysis could only expose drug resistant strains that composed at least 20 percent of a subject's total virus population. (Click here for more
