Informative drop-out arises in longitudinal studies when the subject's follow-up time depends on the unobserved values of the response variable. We specify a semiparametric linear regression model for the repeatedly measured response variable and an accelerated failure time model for the time to informative drop-out. The error terms from the two models are assumed to have a common, but completely arbitrary joint distribution. Using a rank-based estimator for the accelerated failure time model and an artificial censoring device, we construct an asymptotically unbiased estimating function for the linear regression model. The resultant estimator is shown to be consistent and asymptotically normal. A resampling scheme is developed to estimate the limiting covariance matrix. Extensive simulation studies demonstrate that the proposed methods are suitable for practical use. Illustrations with data taken from two AIDS clinical trials are provided.

We compared oxidant-induced intracellular adenine nucleotide catabolism and cell membrane injury in 4 different human cell types. Responses to oxidant exposure were correlated with endogenous antioxidant enzyme activities in these cells. Blood monocytes, amniotic fibroblasts, umbilical vein endothelial cells in primary culture, and transformed bronchial epithelial cells (BEAS 2B) were exposed to 0.1-5 mM hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) for 4 h. Some experiments were conducted in cells pretreated with 3-amino 1:2,4-triazole (ATZ) to inactivate catalase or with 1,3-bis(2-chloroethyl)-1-nitrosourea (BCNU) to inactivate glutathione (GSH) reductase. Depletion of adenine nucleotides and accumulation of their catabolic products (hypoxanthine, xanthine and uric acid) occurred to varying extent, monocytes being the most resistant. There was a mutual relationship between catalase and GSH reductase activities and maintenance of cellular adenine nucleotide levels during H2O2 exposure. GSH reductase inhibition rendered BEAS 2B cells susceptible to lytic injury by H2O2, assessed by release of lactate dehydrogenase and intact nucleotides into the medium, there was no correlation between these markers of such injury and endogenous antioxidant enzymes. We conclude that adenine nucleotide depletion and nucleotide catabolite accumulation relate closely with the antioxidant enzyme activities, whereas the lack of a similar correlation between the enzyme levels and markers of lytic cell injury suggest that intracellular antioxidant enzymes do not protect cells from membrane damage due to extracellular oxidants.

Patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection are prone to the development of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, a lesion in which increased mesangial cell proliferation and matrix synthesis may play a role. We undertook the present study to determine whether HIV sera may affect mesangial cell proliferation and matrix synthesis either directly or indirectly via effects on macrophage supernatants. Pooled HIV sera was found to significantly enhance (P < 0.01) mesangial cell proliferation in a concentration-related manner. Mesangial cell proliferation was significantly suppressed by two medications commonly utilized in HIV-infected patients, azidothymidine and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, and was not significantly altered by lipopolysaccharide, suggesting that these medications as well as recurrent infection are unlikely to account for the proliferative effect of HIV sera. Supernatants from HIV sera-treated macrophages were found to significantly enhance (P < 0.01) mesangial cell incorporation of [3H]proline, a marker for synthesis of the matrix component collagen, compared to supernatants from control sera-treated macrophages. These results suggest that HIV sera may directly enhance mesangial cell proliferation and may indirectly increase mesangial cell matrix synthesis by altering macrophage secretory products. These effects may play a role in the development of glomerulosclerosis in patients with HIV infection.

A short course of ZDVm in carefully selected women does not lead to the emergence of drug resistance based on either standard genotyping or cloning for the detection of minority species. Therefore, this strategy can still be considered in women wishing to prevent MTCT while minimizing antiretroviral exposure, without fear of compromising their future HIV care.

Of the 1291 patients started on therapy, 1253 completed a minimum of 3 months of follow-up. Rash and hepatitis were documented in 6.6% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 5.5-8.3) and 3.2% (95% CI: 2.3-4.8) of patients initiating therapy, respectively. There was significant improvement in CD4 counts over 2 years. Fourty-eight patients died, and 186 clinical events were documented in these patients. Tuberculosis was the most common cause of morbidity and mortality. Self-reported adherence was high.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term stability of the antiretroviral spermicide WHI-07 (5-bromo-6-methoxy-5,6-dihydro-3'-azidothymidine-5'-(p-bromophenyl)-methoxyalaninyl phosphate) in a polymer-based microemulsion. The recovery and stability of WHI-07 in gel-microemulsion was examined by a validated high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method. The stability was examined over a period of 24 weeks at 3 controlled temperatures (4 degrees C, 25 degrees C, and 40 degrees C). The recovery of the prodrug from 0.5% to 2.0% WHI-07-loaded gel-microemulsion was 99.8%. HPLC analysis revealed that a 2% WHI-07-loaded gel-microemulsion stored at room temperature and cold temperatures for 24 weeks retained >90% of the prodrug, whereas those stored at 40 degrees C maintained 90% of initial WHI-07 for at least 10 weeks. The observed stability of WHI-07 in gel-microemulsion is of great importance for its widespread utility in various climatological conditions.

Patients with (n = 93) or at risk for (n = 92) HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders underwent neuropsychological (NP) test batteries before HAART initiation and at follow-up. Changes in normatively adjusted summary NP test z scores were calculated for each subject. Two neuropenetration scores were calculated: the central nervous system penetration reference score (number of drugs in the combination among zidovudine, abacavir, stavudine, lamivudine, efavirenz, nevirapine, indinavir, and lopinavir-ritonavir) and the CNS penetration-effectiveness (CPE) score: a summary score of 1 (high: penetration: [corrected] zidovudine, abacavir, delavirdine, [corrected] nevirapine, amprenavir-ritonavir, fosamprenavir-ritonavir, [corrected] indinavir-ritonavir, and lopinavir-ritonavir), 0.5 (intermediate penetration: [corrected] stavudine, lamivudine, emtricitabine, efavirenz, amprenavir, fosamprenavir, [corrected] atazanavir-ritonavir, atazanavir, [corrected] and indinavir), and 0 (low penetration: remaining ARVs) [corrected] for each drug in the combination. Main outcome measures were changes in global NPZ scores and in summary z scores on 5 domains.

A follow-up study was conducted for the Post-Exposure Prophylaxis of Infants trial in Blantyre, Malawi (PEPI-Malawi). In PEPI-Malawi, breast-feeding infants of HIV-infected women were randomized at birth to receive a either control regimen (single-dose nevirapine plus 1 week of zidovudine); the control regimen plus nevirapine to age 14 weeks; or the control regimen plus nevirapine and zidovudine to age 14 weeks. Infant HIV infection, maternal CD4 cell count, and HAART use were determined. Maternal HAART use was categorized as HAART eligible but untreated (CD4 cell count of <250 cells/microL, no HAART received), HAART eligible and treated (CD4 cell count of <250 cells/microL, HAART received), and HAART ineligible (CD4 cell count of 250 cells/microL). The incidence of HIV infection and the association between postnatal HIV transmission and maternal HAART were calculated among infants who were HIV negative at 14 weeks.

Thiazolo-iso-indolinone derivatives with high specificity toward the reverse transcriptase (RT) of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) were identified. The most potent compound, BM +51.0836, inhibited HIV-1 RT at a 50% inhibitory concentration of 90 nM in vitro. In cell culture assays, similar 50% inhibitory concentrations were obtained with high specificity for HIV-1. These substances were equally active against a zidovudine-resistant isolate. No antiviral effect was observed with an HIV-2 isolate. HIV-1 isolates resistant to the thiazolo-iso-indolinones were generated in cell culture, and the nucleotide sequences of the respective RT genes were analyzed subsequently. Comparison of the deduced amino acid sequences with the wild-type sequence showed an amino acid change at position 181 (Tyr to Cys). Substitutions of amino acid Lys-101 and Lys-103 as well as Tyr-181 and/or Tyr-188 by site-directed mutagenesis led to resistance against the thiazolo-iso-indolinones. A chimeric HIV-2 RT, substituted with amino acids at positions 179 to 190 from HIV-1, acquired only partial susceptibility to BM +51.0836.

This article discusses some of the limitations of observational data for assessing therapeutic effects and categorizes observational studies according to the strength of evidence. Ecologic studies based on AIDS surveillance registries have demonstrated improvements over time in median survival following the onset of AIDS, especially for patients with an initial diagnosis of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. Some of this improvement may be the result of secular changes in the stage of disease at diagnosis or in the completeness of detection of deaths in these cohorts, however. Other ecologic studies of the use of AZT in various subgroups strongly suggest that treatment had a favorable impact on US AIDS incidence rates in gay men in the year beginning July 1987. This article is reprinted with minor changes from Chapter 24 of AIDS Clinical Trials.

After 96 weeks, the mean percent change from baseline in total BMD was -2.5% (LPV/r) and -2.3% (EFV) (P < 0.01 for within-group changes in either arm; P = 0.86 for between-group differences). No alteration in the rate of BMD change was observed upon simplification to LPV/r monotherapy. Although soluble tumor necrosis factor-alpha receptor II concentrations at baseline and 24 weeks were at least marginally associated with subsequent changes in BMD (P = 0.06 and P = 0.028, respectively), these associations were no longer significant after adjustment for CD4 T cell count. Subjects with lower baseline CD4 T cell count, non-black race, and higher baseline glucose demonstrated a higher risk for >5% decrease in BMD.

For comparison (i) the adjusted relative risk estimates from cohorts were between 0.61 and 0.84, favouring combinations over monotherapy, compared with 0.57 to 0.63 for trials. For comparison (ii) relative risk estimates from cohorts ranged from 0.81 to 1.01 compared with 0.77 to 0.92 for trials. For comparison (iii), two of the cohorts showed similar results to the ACTG 320 trial but one indicated a higher risk of progression on triple therapy [relative risk 1.20, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.01-1.441, in buy retrovir direct contrast to the trial result (relative risk 0.50, 95% CI 0.33-0.76).

MKC-442, a derivative of the non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase (RT) inhibitor 1-[(2-hydroxyethoxy)methyl)-6-(phenylthio)thymidine (HEPT), showed potent and selective inhibition of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) replication in vitro, using a range of host-cell/virus systems including human peripheral blood mononuclear cells infected with primary clinical isolates. MKC-442 was evaluated in combination with the nucleoside analogues AZT, ddI and ddC, the non-nucleoside RT inhibitor nevirapine, the HIV-1 proteinase inhibitor Ro-31-8959, and the alpha-glucosidase 1 inhibitor, MDL-28,574, using a cell viability assay. Drug interactions were evaluated by the isobologram technique and by calculating combination indices. Notable synergistic inhibition of HIV-1 replication was observed when MKC-442 was combined with AZT and MDL-28,574 and moderate synergy with ddI. In combination with ddC, nevirapine buy retrovir or Ro-31-8959, only a slightly better than additive effect was observed. Impressive synergy was seen using the three-drug combinations of MKC-442, AZT and MDL-28,574 or MKC-442, AZT and Ro-31-8959. No additional cytotoxicity was observed as measured by [3H]thymidine incorporation by concanavalin A-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells, when MKC-442 was combined with any of the above-mentioned compounds. The use of MKC-442 in a two- or three-drug combination regimen with other RT inhibitors, a proteinase inhibitor or an alpha-glucosidase 1 inhibitor should be considered for HIV-1-related chemotherapy.

195 subjects (131 men, 64 women), median age 34 years, were randomized: 98 received combivir/abacavir and 97 combivir/nelfinavir. Baseline median plasma HIV-1 RNA was 4.2 log10 copies/ml [Interquartile range (IQR): 3.7-4.5.2] and 4.1 log10 copies/ml (IQR: 3.8-4.6), respectively. Baseline median CD4 cell count was 387 cells/mm3 (IQR: 194-501) and 449 cells/mm3 (IQR: 334-605), respectively. Nine patients (3 vs 6, respectively) did not start treatment or did not have any available efficacy data. At week 48, using the intent to treat analysis (switch/missing equals failure buy retrovir ), plasma HIV-1 RNA was <50 copies/ml in 54/95 (57%) and 53/91 (58%) of subjects, respectively. Median CD4 increase was +110 and +120 cells/mm3, respectively. Possible hypersensitivity reactions to abacavir were reported in four subjects (4%).

The aim of our study was to analyse retrospectively the nature and frequency of antiretroviral prescriptions for 990 HIV-infected patients followed at our outpatient centre in Bologna, Italy, from January 2003 to March 2004. The main focus of the study was to identify the most commonly prescribed combinations and their related expenses, in order to identify the most competitive treatment regimens with regard to costs. Prescriptions were given directly to patients at monthly intervals, and drug treatment adherence data was stored in an electronic database. Antiretroviral regimens administered for the longest period to each patient during the 15 months of the study were selected for the study. All patients treated for <9 consecutive months and/or with treatment adherence levels <90% were excluded. Physicians assessed antiretroviral therapy at least quarterly according to buy retrovir efficacy and safety criteria, but not in terms of pharmacoeconomic considerations. Direct pharmacy expenses were obtained for the 24 most commonly used therapeutic regimens, covering 80.1% of patients.

It has been determined that five AIDS-related brain and nervous system diseases (toxoplasmosis, cryptococcal meningitis, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, central nervous system lymphoma, and sensory neuropathies) are becoming growing problems for people with AIDS. These diseases, while being the initial AIDS-defining condition in only 5 to 10 percent of the cases, were a secondary complication in 40 to 60 percent of the cases. The Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study found antiretroviral treatment did not reduce the incidence of HIV dementia, standing in contrast with other reports that have found the incidence of dementia falling in those treated with AZT, in particular. Results from a large post-mortem study presented at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting in 1994 show that AZT treatment greatly buy retrovir reduces the risk of productive HIV infection of the brain and that early discontinuation of AZT leaves patients vulnerable to HIV encephalitis. The cause of HIV dementia remains unknown, but may occur through complex indirect pathways, which could involve cytokine and immunological deterioration.

The combinations of foscarnet plus 2',3'-dideoxyinosine and foscarnet plus 2',3'-dideoxycytidine synergistically inhibit the replication of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 isolates, including two 3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine-resistant isolates. The combination of 2',3'-dideoxyinosine plus 2',3'-dideoxycytidine showed additive inhibition of the majority of the human immunodeficiency virus isolates tested. All three combinations showed pronounced antagonistic cytotoxicity and thus were buy retrovir less toxic to the growth of peripheral blood mononuclear cells than the separate drugs.

Regimen simplification buy retrovir can be defined as a change in established effective therapy to reduce pill burden and dosing frequency, to enhance tolerability, or to decrease specific food and fluid requirements. Many patients on suppressive antiretroviral therapy may be considered candidates for a simplification strategy and, among them, those who have achieved virologic suppression. Several clinical trials have evaluated the efficacy of triple nucleoside combination as a simplification therapy in patients who achieved virologic suppression

Median length of follow-up on triple therapy was 15 months (range: 7-21 months). Neither progression in the CDC classification nor death occurred. No significant change in mean weight SD scores was noted when baseline values were compared with values obtained after 1 year of triple therapy. Median CD4 count increases were of 210 x 10(6)/l, 415 x 10(6)/ buy retrovir l, and 472 x 10(6)/l cells at 6, 12, and 18 months, respectively. Among the patients baseline characteristics, neither age nor initial CD4 cells count influenced the magnitude of immunologic improvement. There were median decreases of 1.14, 0.95, and 1.5 log10 per ml of plasma in the concentration of viral RNA at 6, 12, and 18 months respectively. Seven patients maintained an undetectable viral load when under treatment. The introduction of at least one new reverse transcriptase inhibitor at the initiation of triple therapy correlated significantly with a greater viral suppression.

There buy retrovir are now exactly 20 anti-HIV drugs licenced (approved) for clinical use, and > 30 anti-HIV compounds under (pre)clinical development. The licensed anti-HIV drugs fall into five categories: nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs: zidovudine, didanosine, zalcitabine, stavudine, lamivudine, abacavir and emtricitabine); nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NtRTIs: tenofovir disoproxil fumarate); non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs: nevirapine, delavirdine and efavirenz); protease inhibitors (PIs: saquinavir, indinavir, ritonavir, nelfinavir, amprenavir, lopinavir, atazanavir and fosamprenavir); and fusion inhibitors (FIs: enfuvirtide). The compounds that are currently under clinical (Phase I, II or III) or preclinical investigation are either targeted at the same specific viral proteins as the licensed compounds (i.e., reverse transcriptase [NRTIs: PSI-5004, (-)-dOTC, DPC-817, elvucitabine, alovudine, MIV-210, amdoxovir, DOT; NNRTIs: thiocarboxanilide, UC-781, capravirine, dapivirine, etravirine, rilpivirine], protease [PIs: tipranavir, TMC-114]) or other specific viral proteins (i.e., gp120: cyanovirin N; attachment inhibitors: AIs, such as BMS-488043; integrase: L-870,812, PDPV-165; capsid proteins: PA-457, alpha-HCG); or cellular proteins (CD4 downmodulators: CADAs; CXCR4 antagonists: AMD-070, CS-3955; CCR5 antagonists: TAK-220, SCH-D, AK-602, UK-427857). Combination therapy is likely to remain the gold standard for the treatment of AIDS so as to maximise potency, minimise toxicity and diminish the risk for resistance development. Ideally, pill burden should be reduced to once-daily dosing so as to optimise the patient's compliance and reduce the treatment costs.

The coupling of the monophosphate derivative of 3-azido-2,3-dideoxythymidine (AZTMP) to glycoproteins by water soluble carbodiimide (1-ethyl-3-[3-(dimethylamino)propyl]-3-ethylcarbodiimide) was greatly improved, relative to a recently reported method, by using also N-hydroxysulfosuccinimide (NHS) in the conjugation reaction. The hydrolysis of the activated AZTMP intermediate, responsible for the low degree of conjugation in the earlier method, could be delayed considerably if the activated phosphate group was converted into an activated Detrol 2mg Tab ester by addition of NHS. In order to minimize the use of compounds needed for the preparation of AZTMP-protein conjugates, the present study was undertaken to determine if the reaction conditions could be optimized such that a conjugate with 2 AZTMP molecules/mol of neoglycoprotein would result. In addition a low proportion of cross-linked conjugates was desired. Optimization was achieved studying the shape of three-dimensional response surfaces, in which the degree of AZTMP coupling and the percentage of monomeric conjugates were regarded as the relevant responses. It appeared that the optimal conditions for coupling 1-2 mol of AZTMP to 1 mol of glycoprotein were an incubation time of 30 h, an AZTMP amount of 4 mg, an NHS amount between 8 and 15 mg, and a glycoprotein amount of 50 mg.
