Abstract

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.
