RNA

Biochem ribonucleic acid; any of a group of nucleic acids, present in all living cells, that play an essential role in the synthesis of proteins. On hydrolysis they yield the pentose sugar ribose, the purine bases adenine and guanine, the pyrimidine bases cytosine and uracil, and phosphoric acid

HIV RNA testing is commonly used to screen for antibody-negative acute infection among blood donors; this method can detect HIV infection within 2 weeks of transmission.
Results were adjusted for factors such as race, sex, history of injection-drug use, use of various HAART medications, baseline CD4 and HIV RNA levels, or history of antiretroviral therapy.
One interesting observation was that the HIV envelope of the rebounding plasma virus was genetically distinct from either cell-associated HIV RNA or replication-competent virus in the latently infected CD4 T cells.
In a separate phase I/II investigation, the peptide fusion inhibitor T-1249 demonstrated potent short-term suppression of plasma HIV RNA in 19 out of 24 patients who at baseline were failing a regimen containing enfuvirtide (ENF), or T-20, the precursor to T-1249.
HIV RNA results between 50 and 5,000 copies/mL should be regarded as indeterminate in the setting of suspected acute HIV infection with a negative antibody test, and should be repeated.
Genotyping in six patients whose HIV RNA rebounded to more than 400 copies / mL while on Kaletra found no resistance to protease inhibitors; there was evidence of resistance to 3TC in three patients, consistent with previous studies.
Cell-associated (CA) HIV DNA and RNA were measured in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and in cell pellets from CSF, while cell-free HIV RNA was quantified in CSF supernatant and blood plasma.
The treatment is successful if the patient maintained less than 50 copies/ml of HIV RNA in their blood for at least 48 weeks.
