Abstract

Using data from the UK Register of HIV Seroconverters, we compared the rate of CD4 cell decline in antiretroviral-naive individuals with and without evidence of transmitted drug resistance (TDR). Although there was a suggestion that CD4 cell decline in the first year after seroconversion was faster in those with TDR, there was no evidence of a difference in the rate of decline thereafter. The virological and host determinants of this possible phenomenon are worth further exploration.
