by Rodrigues, Rosangela

Abstract (Summary)
Observacional study in cohort of 148 HIV-1 infected patients under highly active antiretroviral therapy, analysed by different patterns of immunological reconstitution, clinical outcome and viral suppression in 251 weeks of follow up, estratified in Aviremic, Viremic and Virec Attenuated groups. This study observed better clinical and immunological response in Aviremic group, but Viremic Attenuated group shows a significant TCD4+ cells gain (p < 0.013) and less number of cases progressing to AIDS (p < 0.001) compared to Viremic group.
