Dynamics of viral load rebound in plasma and semen after stopping effective antiretroviral therapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A rebound in the plasma and seminal viral load was detected in 12 patients after the interruption of effective highly active antiretroviral therapy. The viral rebound was generally higher in plasma, although the highest level observed during interruption was higher in semen in two patients. The reintroduction of therapy was followed by an overall decrease in HIV-RNA in plasma and semen. One to 2 months after restarting treatment, four out of seven patients showed undetectable HIV-RNA in semen.
