Title / Titel Retrospective Sequencing of old sequences for complementation of the Swiss HIV Cohort Drug Resistance Database
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung To improve representativeness of the SHCS with regard to genotypic HIV drug resistance data. Here we specifically want to go back in the epidemic to obtain baseline genotypes at times when there were not drugs available yet at all. This information will be of invaluable use for many future studies. Die SHCS is globally one of the largest and best characterized longitudinal cohort studies that runs almost from the beginning of the epidemic. Furthermore, it is one of the very few if not the only cohort that actually is truly representative of the HIV epidemic in one country for a long period of time (covers at least 50% of HIV-infected patients in Switzerland of all transmission groups and approx. 70-75% of AIDS patiens in Switzerland. This proportions remained stable over the years)
