|gΔ and sΔ denote gross deletion and in-frame small deletion, respectively. |
HAART: highly active antiretroviral therapy; ND: not determined.
aTwo out of three genes contained both stop codon and sΔ.
for the sum of 3 kinds of defective genes (36/275 versus 42/157).
Fifty-two vif genes at baseline obtained from serum using RT-PCR were all wild types. *Control patients () revealed premature stop codon in one out of 106 vif genes.
