Abstract

In Pakistan, HIV has converted from outbreak to concentrated epidemic and has also bridged into the low-risk population. The HIV epidemic in Pakistan mainly comprises subtype A. Here, we present the first case and genetic analysis of a circulating recombinant form 56-cpx in a Pakistani HIV-infected patient. Genetic analysis of the sequence indicated that Pakistani 56-cpx sequence had more drug resistance mutation than the other 56-cpx sequences available in the database.
