HIV patients/Aids, HIV-Viral load, HIV-Drug Resistance


The objective of this retrospective descriptive study was to study the result of drug resistance testing among HIV/AIDS patients receiving antiviral HIV drugs treatment. The study subjects were HIV/ADIS patients having HIV-Viral Load (VL) >1,000 copies/mL. The data was collected by the molecular laboratory at Roi Et Hospital between January 1st, 2016 to December 31st, 2018. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics. The results showed that two-thirds of patient were males (64.36%), average age 35.09 years (SD = 11.23). The average HIV-VL was 102,795.6 copies/mL (±SD 215,831.6). Two-thirds of subjects had drug resistance (68.88%) consisting of Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (NRTIs) (45.21%), Non-Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (NNRTIs) (65.69%), and Protease Inhibitors (PIs) (3.99%). It showed that all of them susceptible to Integrase strand transfer Inhibitors (INSTIs) (100%) and resistance to NRTIs (1.44%), NNRTIs (2.09%) and PIs (0.13%). It was found that there was non-resistance to INSTIs drug. In summary, most patients had drug resistant to NNRTIs, NRTIs
and Pls and susceptible to INSTIs
