Synonyms:
Quest test code 94807, Archived DNA,Undetected viral load,Cell-associated Viral DNA,Archived resistance,Resistance Analysis
Clinical significance:
This test utilizes PCR and next generation (ultra-deep) sequencing of proviral DNA to detect drug resistance mutations in the HIV-1 protease, reverse transcriptase and integrase genes. This information will assist clinicians considering a modification of the treatment regimens for virologically suppressed patients or for patients with a low viral load for whom an RNA resistance test was not successful.
