HIV Drug Resistance

With HIV, drug resistance is caused by changes in the virus’s genetic structure. These mutations can lead to changes in certain proteins, most commonly enzymes, which help HIV to replicate. Mutations are quite common in HIV. This is often a result of HIV that replicates at a speed rate and doesn't contain the proteins required to correct the mistakes it makes throughout repeating. Mutations occur in Reverse transcriptase, Integrase, Protease and gp41 during pre-exposure prophylaxis or during the phase of treatment
