As a result of this finding, treatment guidelines in the U. All subjects provided written informed consent prior to study entry. Find answers to some common questions in this section.

Patterns of viral load changes in the early viral load substudy mirrored the patterns observed in the overall study. Secondly, the difference between anticipated and actual study outcomes made the definition of equivalence more demanding than originally intended.

FischlMD, 6 Andrew R. There was also no significant difference in time to failure between efavirenz and ritonavir-boosted atazanavir, when paired with aftg of the two dual-nucleoside backbones. However, previous studies have shown that single early viral load measurements can be used as surrogates for the more complex sampling and modeling involved in estimating the phases of decay.


In this protocol-specified secondary analysis of ACTG A and its viral load substudy, we found no significant difference in early viral load change between the NRTI arms, including in the high viral load stratum.
