ABSTRACT
Once expected to die in early childhood, children born with HIV are now surviving into their teens and early adulthood thanks to research advances over the past decade. However, it's also likely these children will develop drug resistance due to sequential exposure to HIV treatments. Researchers at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center say that with careful planning and adherence to treatment plans, these patients can stay healthy. If HIV patients develop a drug resistance, the results could possibly be life-threatening, since resistance reduces the chance a new drug regimen will be successful, says the study's lead author, Nancy Hutton, M.D., director of the Intensive Primary Care Clinic at the Children's Center.
