Observed HIV drug resistance associated mutations amongst naïve immunocompetent children in Yaounde, Cameroon
(European HIV/AIDS and Infectious Diseases Academy, 2017)
Introduction: The emergence of drug resistance mutations (DRMs) has been a major threat for successful lifelong combination antiretroviral therapy (cART), especially for HIV-vertically infected children within the context ...
