HIV Drug Resistance in Kenyan Infants Diagnosed With HIV and Their Mothers.
The presence and type of HIV drug resistance mutations among 5 infants diagnosed with HIV were assessed and compared with their mothers' viral mutations. Mother and infant blood samples were sequenced and screened for HIV drug resistance mutations using the Stanford HIV Sequence Database. Three of 5 (60%) mother-infant pairs harbored HIV drug resistance mutations.
