A rapid, simple assay can now determine the presence of plasma HIV resistant to most reverse transcriptase inhibitors [94]. If antiretroviral therapy is to be used in those with primary HIV infection, it would be advantageous to determine the drug susceptibility prior to commencing therapy. Similar assays assessing protease inhibitor resistance are in development. 3. 1. T-cell Subsets Primary HIV infection is characterised by rapid changes in peripheral T-lymphocyte subsets [29,69,82,112]. During the first 1 to 2 weeks there characteristically is lymphopenia affecting both CD4+ and CD8+ subsets.
