YABAR, Carlos A. et al. Transmitted resistance in HIV-1 of patients from nine departments of Peru. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2021, vol.38, n.1, pp.77-82.  Epub Dec 20, 2020. ISSN 1726-4634.

The main aim of this research is to identify the transmitted resistance (RT) of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in subjects from nine cities of Peru. For this, a descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out in 135 adult subjects who agreed to participate through an informed consent. Blood samples were collected to perform the CD4 / CD8 cell count, viral load and HIV Genotyping. Socio-epidemiological information was collected from the participants through surveys. The results revealed a RT frequency of 9.8% (13/132). The information from this research might help improve the intervention and monitoring programs for antiretroviral resistance in the country.

Keywords : Genotype; Drug resistance; HIV.
