Rio DE JANEIRO -- The novel nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor Reverset is poised to become the newest member of the oldest class of antiretroviral agents, with researchers reporting its promise for HIV-infected patients for whom current antiretroviral regimens have failed and who have NRTI resistance.
67 for high ALT), and the same was true among those on multiple nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (OR of 1.
Newer drugs are selecting for different types of resistance, especially in nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), so that there may not be large numbers of thymidine analog mutations (TAMs) developing in patients who have started therapy in recent years.

Soon the benefit of combining therapies began to become clearer (the combination trend had actually begun earlier with nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, NRTIs), and the treatment paradigm of 2 NRTIs and a PI became the unique model by which other therapies were measured.
