There are no studies performed in India on the safety of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) combinations which focus on the base-line CD4+ T-cell count

2013-01-01 Vidyasagar S Varma D Naik A Hegde

Further, no data on risk factors for Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) to HAART and there is a lack of data on CD4+ T-cell count recovery after HAART, 2013.

In patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), zidovudine has been known to cause a severe anaemia that resolves promptly when the drug is stopped. The study was aimed to assess the incidence, the pattern of occurrence of zidovudine induced anaemia, causality, severity, predictability, preventability and to identify risk factors for zidovudine induced anomia in Indian HIV positive patients in comparison with stavudine based highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART)

In India, interruptions to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) are due to adverse drug reactions. This study was aimed to assess the association between HAART adherence and adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) patients
