Quantification of viral loads lower than 50 copies per milliliter by use of the Cobas AmpliPrep/Cobas TaqMan HIV-1 test, version 2.0, can predict the likelihood of subsequent virological rebound to >50 copies per milliliter.

Abstract

After 1 year of follow-up, patients on HAART with a baseline viral load (VL) of <20 copies/ml showed significantly lower odds of virological rebound to two consecutive VLs of >50 copies/ml than those with baseline VLs of 20 to 39 and 40 to 49 (P < 0.001). The time to virological rebound was also significantly shorter (P < 0.001) for the groups with baseline VLs of 20 to 39 and 40 to 49.
