ABSTRACT
Viral decay rates during efavirenz-based therapy were compared between human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients without tuberculosis (n = 40) and those with tuberculosis coinfection who were receiving concurrent antituberculous therapy (n = 34). Phase I and II viral decay rates were similar in the 2 groups (P > .05). Overall, concurrent antituberculous therapy did not reduce the efficacy of the HIV treatment.
