The genotypic DNA sequencing method has its limitation in that the algorithms defining drug resistance have only been developed for HIV clade B non-complex mutations and they are only an indrect measure of resistance. However, direct phenotypic methods overcome this problem. Based on a lentivirus Gag-Pol packaging system, we are developing systems using a luciferase reporter gene to easily allow drug resistance to be measured in non Clade B viruses. Using these assays , as well as genotypic sequencing methods , in collaboration with Dr. Pascal Bessong , of the University of Venda in South Africa we have been defining the prevalence of HIV resistance in the non-treated population in selected areas in Limpopo Province , a rural province in northern South Africa. We are also investigating the impact of polymorphisms on baseline resistance , resistance development and the resistance evolutionary patterns in HIV-1-C infected patients who are undergoing treatment.
