CD4 criteria improves the sensitivity of a clinical algorithm developed to identify viral failure in HIV-positive patients on first-line antiretroviral therapy

Abstract Background: Routine viral load monitoring of patients on antiretroviral therapy (ART) is neither affordable nor available in most resource-limited settings. We used data from an electronic patient management system to develop an algorithm to identify patients at risk of viral failure using a combination of accessible and inexpensive markers. Methods: We analyzed data from HIV-positive adults initiated on ART at Themba Lethu Clinic, South Africa between April 2004-February 2010.
