The median follow-up to date of death or last known vital status was 43 months (10th percentile 18 months; 90th percentile 55 months). The proportion of participants remaining on their allocated treatment fell steadily over time; by 4 years after trial entry, 3% remained on ZDV, 20% on ZDV + ddI and 21% on ZDV + ddC. Changes mainly involved the stopping, addition or switching of a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTIs). There was little use of protease inhibitors (PIs) or non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) before the third year of the trial. Between the third and fourth years, regimens included a drug from one of these classes for approximately 17% of person-time in all treatment groups. Relative to ZDV monotherapy, the beneficial effects of combination therapy on mortality and disease progression rates increased significantly with time since randomization. The maximum effects on mortality were observed between 2 and 3 years, with a 48% reduction for ZDV + ddI and a 26% reduction for ZDV + ddC. These rates were observed when the original allocated treatment was received 42% and 47% of the time in the ZDV + ddI and ZDV + ddC groups, respectively. The mean CD4 count remained significantly higher (approximately 50 cells/microL) in the combination therapy groups 4 years after randomization, suggesting a projection of a clinical benefit beyond this time point.

Progressive left ventricular dilatation occurred in children with symptomatic HIV infection. Compensatory hypertrophy also occurred but was inadequate to maintain peak systolic wall stress within the normal range. The progressive elevation of ventricular afterload due to dilatation resulted in depressed ventricular performance, but intrinsic ventricular contractility remained normal. Zidovudine did not appear to worsen or ameliorate these cardiac changes.

HAART induced a significant increase in the PLT count (chi(2)=10.53, P=0.01) within the third month which was sustained up to the sixth month of therapy. No STP relapse was observed among eight PLT responders followed for longer than 6 months (median 27; range 7-41 months). The PLT increase after HAART was similar to that observed with AZT monotherapy, but a greater number of HAART patients were antiretroviral-experienced. HAART determined a PLT response in 10/13 subjects whose thrombocytopenia had not improved after previous AZT monotherapy. After 6 months of HAART, a complete platelet response occurred more frequently in patients with undetectable plasma HIV-RNA levels (P=0.01).

L-696,229 (3-[2-(benzoxazol-2-yl)ethyl]-5-ethyl-6-methyl-pyridin-2 (1H)-one) is a specific inhibitor of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) reverse transcriptase (RT) activity that possesses antiviral activity in cell culture (W.S. Saari, J.M. Hoffman, J.S. Wai, T.E. Fisher, C.S. Rooney, A.M. Smith, C.M. Thomas, M. E. Goldman, J. A. O'Brien, J. H. Nunberg, J. C. Quintero, W. A. Schleif, E. A. Emini, and P. S. Anderson, J. Med. Chem. 34:2922-2925, 1991). In the present study, the RT-inhibitory activity and antiviral properties were characterized in detail. The inhibition of RT activity was template-primer dependent with 50% inhibitory concentrations of 0.018 to 0.50 microM and was noncompetitive with respect to deoxynucleoside triphosphates. L-696,229 inhibited RT activity in a mutually exclusive manner with respect to either phosphonoformate or azidothymidine triphosphate and was a weak partial inhibitor of the RNase H activity associated with HIV-1 RT. The compound did not significantly inhibit other retroviral or cellular polymerases at 300 microM.L-696,229 inhibited the spread of HIV-1 infection in cell cultures with all cell types and viral isolates tested, including human peripheral blood mononuclear cells and a virus isolate resistant to azidothymidine.

In June 2001 the United Nations Special Assembly on HIV/AIDS set reduction targets of 20% and 50% for the numbers of children newly infected with HIV by 2005 and 2010 respectively. Are these targets achievable? Antiretroviral monotherapy during pregnancy, delivery, and the neonatal period can reduce the rate of mother-to-child transmission of HIV-1 by two-thirds in non-breastfeeding populations. Shorter and simpler regimens of monotherapy have been associated with a reduction of 50% in such transmission among non-breastfeeding populations and of up to 40% in breastfeeding populations. Delivery by elective caesarean section is associated with a halving of the risk of mother-to-child transmission. However, breastfeeding poses a substantial additional risk of acquisition of HIV, and if prolonged it more than doubles the overall rate of transmission. Rates below 2% are being reported from settings where combination therapy is applied during pregnancy and delivery, delivery is by elective caesarean section, and breastfeeding does not take place. In breastfeeding populations where elective caesarean delivery is not an option but peripartum antiretroviral therapy is used, rates at six weeks are about 10% but can be 25% or more after 18 months of breastfeeding. More widely applicable interventions are being developed, such as cleansing of the birth canal and antiretroviral therapy during the breastfeeding period.

This systematic review focuses on antiretroviral therapy (ART) for treating human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in ART-eligible pregnant women. Mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) is the primary means by which children worldwide acquire HIV infection. MTCT occurs during three major timepoints during pregnancy and the postpartum period: in utero, intrapartum, and during breastfeeding. Strategies to reduce MTCT focus on these periods of exposure and include maternal and infant use of ART, caesarean section before onset of labour or rupture of membranes, and complete avoidance of breastfeeding. Where these combined interventions are available, the risk of MTCT is as low as 1-2%. Thus, ART used among mothers who require treatment of HIV for their own health also plays a significant role in decreasing MTCT.This review is one in a series of systematic reviews performed in preparation for the revision of the 2006 World Health Organization (WHO) Guidelines regarding "Antiretroviral Drugs for Treating Pregnant Women and Preventing HIV Infection in Infants" and "Antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV Infections in Adults and Adolescents." The findings from these reviews were discussed with experts, key stakeholders, and country representatives at the 2009 WHO guideline review meeting. The resulting WHO 2009 "rapid advice" preliminary guidance on adult and adolescent ART now recommends lifelong treatment for all adults with HIV infection and CD4 counts <350 cells/mm(3). These recommendations also apply to pregnant women who are HIV-infected and they place a high value on early ART to benefit the mother's own health (WHO 2009). The "rapid advice" preliminary guidance also aims to minimize side effects for mothers and their infants (WHO 2009).

Median baseline values for all subjects were 42 420 copies/ml for HIV RNA and 277 x 10(6)/l for CD4 count. During the trial a significantly lower HIV RNA level and higher CD4 count was sustained in the ZDV/3TC group compared with the other group, with a difference in the median area under the curve from baseline per month of follow-up of 0.38 log10 copies/ml HIV RNA and 0.18 log2 x 10(6)/l CD4 cells (P < 0.001 in each case). For patients who were initially asymptomatic or in CDC stage B, the adjusted relative hazard (RH) of AIDS for a twofold lower CD4 count was 3.14 [95% confidence interval (CI), 1.44-6.83] and for a 10-fold higher HIV RNA level was 3.22 (1.20-8.59). The RH progression to AIDS expected with ZDV/3TC compared with the control treatments, given the observed effects of treatment on CD4 cell counts and HIV RNA levels, is 0.52, whereas the observed value was 0.16 (0.03-0.74). After adjustment for HIV RNA and CD4 changes over time the observed RH of progression to AIDS for ZDV/3TC treatment compared with controls was increased to 0.36 and was no longer significant (95% CI, 0.07-1.85).

We propose that our models will accurately predict the extent of placental transfer of dideoxynucleoside drugs against human immunodeficiency virus. The models may also be applicable to other classes of drugs, regardless of therapeutic category, provided that these drugs passively diffuse across the placenta. Such a result will expedite phase 1 clinical trials of drugs in pregnant women.

Certain antiretroviral medications for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have been implicated in increasing risk of cardiovascular disease. However, antiretroviral drugs are typically prescribed in combination. We characterized the association of current exposure to antiretroviral drug combinations on risk of cardiovascular events including myocardial infarction, stroke, percutaneous coronary intervention, and coronary artery bypass surgery. We used the Veterans Health Administration Clinical Case Registry to analyze data from 24 510 patients infected with HIV from January 1996 through December 2009. We assessed the association of current exposure to 15 antiretroviral drugs and 23 prespecified combinations of agents on the risk of cardiovascular event by using marginal structural models and Cox models extended to accommodate time-dependent variables.

Recent findings suggest bidirectional antagonisms between the K65R mutation and thymidine analogue mutations in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-infected, treatment-experienced patients, yet little is known about HIV-2 in this regard. This study addressed the effects of innate polymorphisms in HIV-2 on emergent resistance to nucleoside/nucleotide analogues. Emergent drug resistance profiles in HIV-2 subtypes A (n = 3) and B (n = 1) were compared to those of HIV-1 subtypes B and C. Drug resistance was evaluated with cord blood mononuclear cells (CBMCs) and MT2 cells, using selective pressure with tenofovir (TFV), zidovudine (ZDV), stavudine (d4T), didanosine (ddI), abacavir (ABC), lamivudine (3TC), emtricitabine (FTC), or various dual-drug combinations. Resistance was evaluated using conventional and ultrasensitive sequencing approaches. In agreement with our previous findings, dual-drug combinations of TFV, ddI, ABC, d4T, ZDV, and 3TC preferentially selected for K65R in HIV-1 subtype C isolates. In HIV-1 subtype B, TFV-3TC and ZDV-3TC selected for M184I and D67N, respectively. In contrast, selections with all four HIV-2 cultures favored the development of M184I in dual-drug combinations that included either 3TC or FTC. Since HIV-2 cultures did not develop K65R, an ultrasensitive allele-specific real-time PCR assay was developed to distinguish the presence of 65R from wild-type K65 after 16 cycles with a discriminatory ability of 0.1% against a population of wild-type virus. These results underscore potential differences in emergent drug resistance pathways in HIV-1 and HIV-2 and show that polymorphisms may influence the development of the resistance pathways that are likely to emerge.

We identified an HIV-1 variant that belongs to the M group, with limited similarity of short genetic regions (100-200 nt) to subtype K, but the remainder of the genome is unrelated to any established HIV-1 subtype. The isolate was obtained from an HIV-1-positive male, living in the Netherlands, who encountered the virus before 1989, most probably via heterosexual contact in Africa. We describe the full-length genome sequence of four biological clones that were obtained from two samples collected 5 years apart. At both time points all open reading frames were intact. Within the 5-year interval, the person received antiretroviral therapy with zalcitabine and zidovudine for almost 4 years. Evolution of drug-resistant variants is likely given the increase in viral RNA load to +/-10,000 copies/ml during the last year of treatment. Surprisingly, the only regular RT mutation acquired during this period was K70R, which suggests that the genetic background of this variant is perhaps not suitable for the generation of the standard 41L, 67N, and 215Y/F mutations that typically arise during prolonged, nonsuccessful, zidovudine treatment. Awaiting the discovery of at least two additional, epidemiologically unrelated patients with a phylogenetically related HIV-1 variant, we can designate this variant a new HIV-1 subtype, or a distinct branch of subtype K.

A 49-year-old, human immunodeficiency virus-1-infected Asian woman developed Fanconi syndrome-like tubular acidosis while taking tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF)/emtricitabine plus lopinavir/ritonavir for 9 months. All of her symptoms and abnormalities in laboratory tests resolved completely after switching TDF/emtricitabine to zidovudine and lamivudine. We consider that TDF caused symptomatic tubular acidosis in the present case, one of the few that has been reported in Japan to date.

We studied the role of reverse transcriptase (RT) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 replication in syncytia following cell fusion. A chronically HIV-1-infected MOLT-4 (MOLT-4/IIIB) cells allow HIV-1 replication and induce syncytium formation between uninfected MOLT-4 cells. AZT (3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine, 1 microM) inhibited neither HIV-1 replication in MOLT-4/IIIB cells nor the syncytium formation induced by concultivation of MOLT-4/IIIB cells with uninfected MOLT-4 cells. In the supernatant of the syncytium containing culture a remarkably higher titer of p24 antigen was produced than in that of MOLT/IIIB cell culture. AZT inhibited p24 antigen production by HIV-1 in the syncytia to levels to comparable to that in MOLT-4/IIIB cells which were treated with AZT. In addition, p24 production by HIV-1 in the syncytia formed by cocultivation of CL-2 cells, which are chronically infected with HIV-1 but lack functional RT, with uninfected MOLT-4 cells was not different from that in CL-2 cells alone. The results suggest that HIV-1 RT plays an important role in HIV-1 replication within the syncytia but an RT-independent replication process which is essential for syncytium formation also exists in the syncytia. These results indicate that not only RT inhibitors but also inhibitors of syncytium formation are essential for anti-HIV therapy.

This review provides evidence that co-formulated abacavir-lamivudine-zidovudine remains a viable option for initiating antiretroviral therapy, especially in HIV-infected patients with pre-existing hyperlipidaemia. The varied geographical locations of the included trials augment the external validity of these findings. We are moderately confident in our estimate of the treatment effects of the triple NRTI regimen as initial therapy for HIV infection. In the context of the GRADE approach, such moderate quality of evidence implies that the true effects of the regimen are likely to be close to the estimate of effects found in this review; but there is a possibility that they could be substantially different.  Further research should be geared towards defining the subgroup of HIV patients for whom this regimen will be most beneficial.

We assessed the in vitro toxicity of tenofovir (TFV) and compared it with those of zidovudine (AZT), didanosine (ddI), ritonavir (RTV), and lopinavir (LPV) alone and in combination in human renal proximal tubule epithelial cells (RPTECs). The cells were treated with various concentrations and combinations of the tested antiretrovirals for up to 22 days, and cytotoxicity was determined. In addition, we assessed the levels of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and cytochrome oxidase II (COII) mRNA in RPTECs treated with reverse transcriptase inhibitors. TFV alone was not associated with significant cytotoxicity. ddI showed pronounced cytotoxicity that was greater than those of AZT (P = 0.002) and TFV (P = 0.0001). The combination of 10 muM RTV and 40 muM LPV significantly reduced RPTEC viability (P < 0.0001), and TFV tended to partially reduce this effect. TFV alone affected neither mtDNA nor COII mRNA levels, whereas ddI caused a profound depletion of mtDNA and a parallel reduction in COII mRNA buy retrovir online expression. The effects of ddI, but not those of AZT, on mtDNA and COII mRNA were further enhanced in the presence of TFV, a finding consistent with the inhibition of ddI clearance by TFV. The addition of TFV to ddI or AZT appeared to slightly increase the COII mRNA/mtDNA ratio relative to that in cells treated with ddI or AZT alone. Together, these in vitro results indicate that combination with other antiretrovirals does not significantly increase the toxic potential of TFV in RPTECs.

The 4-aminoquinoline chloroquine and its analogue hydroxychloroquine are endowed with anti-HIV-1 activity both in vitro and in vivo. We previously reported that the addition of CQ (chloroquine) to the combination of HU (hydroxyurea) and ddI (didanosine) provides additive anti-HIV-1 activity. We here extended this in vitro investigation by studying whether the addition of CQ also resulted in additive anti-HIV-1 activity when combined with HU plus AZT (zidovudine). The same effect was buy retrovir online found, whether CQ was added to HU plus AZT or to HU plus ddI, in recently infected H-9 and U-937 cells or primary T cells and monocytes, as well as in immunologically or oxidatively stimulated ACH-2 and U-1 cells. At concentrations where CQ exerts its anti-HIV-1 effect in combination with the other drugs, CQ addition does not result in either cell toxicity or apoptosis.

Fifty-five patients started a two NRTI plus tenofovir regimen mostly because of previous toxicity/intolerance of the original drugs (74%). After 24 weeks, only 17 patients (31%) remained virologically suppressed. Patients with a regimen including a didanosine plus tenofovir-based regimen had significantly poorer outcomes than those on other combinations (success rate 5 versus 47.1%, P = 0.001). In contrast, patients on a regimen including zidovudine plus tenofovir showed a trend towards a better outcome (75 versus 27%, buy retrovir online P = 0.083). Multivariate analysis confirmed the combination of didanosine plus tenofovir as the only variable associated with a higher rate of failure (odds ratio 17.7; 95% confidence interval 2.1-147; P = 0.007). Patients with previous reverse transcriptase mutations presented virological failure in all cases. At failure a new pattern, including the K65R mutation with M184V or thymidine analogue mutations, was observed.

Mitochondria produce the energy required for proper cardiac contractile function, and cardiomyocytes that exhibit reduced mitochondrial electron transport will have reduced energy production and decreased contractility. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) encodes the core subunits for the protein complexes of the electron transport chain (ETC). Reduced mtDNA abundance has been linked to reduced ETC and the development of heart failure in genetically engineered mice and in human diseases. Nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitors for HIV/AIDS are used in antiretroviral regimens, which cause decreased mtDNA abundance by inhibiting the mitochondrial buy retrovir online polymerase, pol-γ, as a limiting side effect. We explored consequences of AZT (1-[(2R,4S,5S)-4-azido-5-(hydroxymethyl)oxolan-2-yl]-5-methylpyrimidine-2,4-dione) exposure on mtDNA abundance in an established transgenic mouse model (TG) in which a cardiac-targeted mutant form of pol-γ displays a dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) phenotype with increased left ventricle (LV)-mass and increased LV-end diastolic dimension. TG and wild-type littermate mice received 0.22 mg per day AZT or vehicle for 35 days, and were subsequently analyzed for physiological, histological, and molecular changes. After 35 days, Y955C TGs exhibited cardiac fibrosis independent of AZT. Reduced mtDNA abundance was observed in the Y955C mouse; AZT treatment had no effect on the depletion, suggesting that Y955C was sufficient to reduce mtDNA abundance maximally. Isolated mitochondria from AZT-treated Y955C hearts displayed reduced mitochondrial energetic function by oximetric measurement. AZT treatment of the Y955C mutation further reduced basal mitochondrial respiration and state IV(0) respiration. Together, these results demonstrate that defective pol-γ function promotes cardiomyopathy, cardiac fibrosis, mtDNA depletion, and reduced mitochondrial energy production.

AZT induced the expression of p33ING1b mRNA and senescence of the tumor cells of the 1st generation in a dosage and time dependent manner. At the 6th generation, the relative amount of p33ING1b RT-PCR product (1.44±0.23) and sβ-Gal labeling index of 200 µmol/L group (45.62±6.74) were significantly higher than those of the 1st (0.95±0.13 and 7.82±2.40) and the 3rd generation cells (1.35±0.23, 26.27±7.17) of the same group, and cells of the same generation in the 50 µmol/L (0.85±0.24, 27.37±6.41) and 100 µmol/L groups (1.23±0.34, 35.49±5.12, P<0.01). There was buy retrovir online a significant positive correlation between the p33ING1b mRNA expression and the labeling index of sβ-Gal.

The purpose of this article is to model the progression of CD4-lymphocyte count and the relationship between different features of this progression and survival time. The complicating factors in this analysis are that the CD4-lymphocyte count is observed only at certain fixed times and with a high degree of measurement error, and that the length of the vector of observations is determined, in part, by the length of survival. If probability of death depends on the true, unobserved CD4-lymphocyte count, then the survival process must be modelled. Wu and Carroll buy retrovir online (1988, Biometrics 44, 175-188) proposed a random effects model for two-sample longitudinal data in the presence of informative censoring, in which the individual effects included only slopes and intercepts. We propose methods for fitting a broad class of models of this type, in which both the repeated CD4-lymphocyte counts and the survival time are modelled using random effects. These methods permit us to estimate parameters describing the progression of CD4-lymphocyte count as well as the effect of differences in the CD4 trajectory on survival. We apply these methods to results of AIDS clinical trials.

Three hematopoietic growth factors, erythropoietin, GM-CSF, and G-CSF, have all been evaluated in the context of HIV infection. Recombinant human Epo is currently licensed for therapy of anemia related to zidovudine and is well tolerated in this patient population. Although myelosuppression can clearly be overcome using recombinant human GM-CSF or G-CSF in HIV-infected hosts, the clinical benefits for such patients are still Aricept Reviews not determined. It is likely that these growth factor therapies will allow for delivery of certain important myelosuppressive medications that otherwise could not be tolerated. Improvements in virological quantitation in vivo should help settle the controversies regarding modulation of HIV replication caused by cytokine treatment. The clinical use of hematopoietic growth factors in HIV disease requires further study with regard to the optimization of increases in blood cell number and/or modulation of blood cell function.

Our data indicate that immune restoration achieved after 1 year of therapy with either NFV or NVP was similar. This reinforces the role of NVP-containing regimens as a valid option for initiating antiretroviral therapy. Nevertheless, additional therapeutic approaches should be envisaged to restore HIV-1 Seroquel Brand Name -specific T-cell responses.

Transmission of HIV from mother to infant can be effectively prevented by zidovudine (3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine; AZT) alone or in combination with other anti-retroviral drugs; however, significant evidence for genotoxicity, including transplacental carcinogenicity in mice, has been reported for AZT. A method, based upon solid phase extraction (SPE) in the 96-well format, gradient liquid chromatography (LC), and electrospray mass spectrometry (MS), was developed and validated to measure serum concentrations in maternal C57BL/6N and fetal B6C3F1 mice of the nucleoside analogs AZT, lamivudine ((-)2',3'-dideoxy-3'-thiacytidine; 3TC), and several metabolites selected based on importance in detoxification and bioactivation reactions. After intravenous (i.v.) and oral dosing with either 400 mg/kg AZT or 200 mg/kg 3TC, pharmacokinetics were determined for AZT, AZT-5'-glucuronide, 3'-amino-3'-deoxythymidine (AMT), AZT-5'-phosphate, 3TC, and 3TC-5'-phosphate in serum of adult female mice. Pharmacokinetics were also determined in spleen for AZT-5'-phosphate and 3TC-5'-phosphate following i.v. dosing. In addition, a preliminary assessment Motilium M Tablet was made of placental transfer of AZT and 3TC and the presence of metabolites in the fetal compartment. The method described provides a means to evaluate thoroughly metabolism and disposition of anti-retroviral nucleoside analogs in maternal and fetal mice for comprehensive studies of genotoxicity.

Twice-daily maraviroc was not noninferior to efavirenz at <50 copies/mL in the primary analysis. However, 15% of patients would have been ineligible for inclusion by a more sensitive screening assay. Their retrospective exclusion resulted in similar response rates in both arms Cymbalta And Reviews Trial registration. identifier: (NCT00098293) .

Between May 2011 and October 2014, HIV seroconvertors from two tenofovir gel trials were recruited when eligible for ART (CD4 count <350 cells/μl, pregnancy or AIDS-defining illness). Women were randomised to tenofovir-containing (tenofovir + lamivudine/emtricitabine + efavirenz) or tenofovir-sparing (zidovudine + lamivudine/emtricitabine + efavirenz) antiretroviral treatment regimens. The proportion with virological suppression, adverse events and drug switches were compared. Neem Leaf Capsules

Of 358 HIV- Aricept And Alcohol positive patients vertically infected, five women became pregnant, between 14 and 24 years old. Pregnancies were controlled in clinical/immune-stage N2 C3. They had received two to five therapies. Full PPTV was performed in all binomials. Pre-natal undetectable viral loads ranged from 4,700 ARN copies/mL. Five living children were born by Caesarean section, four of them with 37 weeks of completed gestation and one of them with 34 weeks of gestation. All received zidovudine (AZT) for 6 weeks. CD4 at 72 hours of life ranged from 48% to 74.6%. All children were born uninfected with HIV. Only two had mild anemia.

The emergence of azidothymidine (AZT)-resistant human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) variants in clinical samples was studied by a direct genomic sequencing method. Sequential lymphocyte samples from four patients, who had been treated with AZT Zanaflex Pill High for up to 27 months, were shown to gradually accumulate multiple nucleotide changes, some of which are known to be associated with AZT resistance. Several samples were shown to contain mixtures of wild-type and mutated genomes, indicating gradual rather than sudden changes in the HIV-1 quasispecies. These results demonstrate for the first time that automated solid-phase DNA sequencing is a rapid and useful tool for investigation of antiviral drug resistance and suggest that DNA sequencing may be important in routine clinical diagnostics in the future.

We conducted a randomized trial that compared two prophylactic regimens: dapsone (50 mg per day Topamax Overdose ) plus pyrimethamine (50 mg per week) was compared with aerosolized pentamidine (300 mg per month). The patients had symptomatic HIV infection, no history of P. carinii pneumonia or symptomatic toxoplasmosis, and CD4+ counts below 200 per cubic millimeter (0.2 x 10(9) per liter).

Adult T-cell leukaemia lymphoma (ATLL) is an aggressive disease caused by the human T-lymphotropic virus 1 (HTLV-I) with a short survival. Responses to interferon alpha (IFN-alpha) and zidovudine (AZT) have been documented but not with long-term follow-up. We treated 15 ATLL patients with IFN and AZT. Eleven patients had acute ATLL, two had lymphoma and two smouldering ATLL, with progression. The main features were: organomegaly (14), skin lesions (10), high white blood cell (WBC) count (11) and hypercalcaemia (9). Eleven patients had previously received chemotherapy Naprosyn 150 Mg and one had received an autograft. At the time of the study, seven patients had progressive disease and eight were in partial or complete clinical remission. Responses (PR) lasting 2+ to 44+ months were seen in 67%; 26% did not respond (NR) and one patient was not evaluable. Hypercalcaemia predicted a poor outcome but differences were not significant. Eight of the 15 patients have died 3-41 months from diagnosis. Median survival for the 15 patients was 18 months. Survival of the NR ranged from 4 to 20 months; six PR patients are alive 8-82 months from diagnosis. The differences in survival between NR (median: 6 months) and PR (55% of patients alive at 4 years) were statistically significant (P = 0.002). In conclusion, IFN and AZT improves the outcome of ATLL patients and helps maintain responses.
