Trofile amplifies the envelope gene from a patient’s HIV genome and then uses it to make HIV particles containing the patient’s virus envelope protein. Obtained HIV particles are then cells containing cells containing the co-receptor CCR5 or CXCR4, the co – receptor on the cell surface. Once the virus infects the cells, it undergoes a single round of replication. Virus replication for the production of luciferase from a luciferase gene, which is performed in the cell by the virus.
Monogram Trofile assay was used to select patients for participation in clinical trials that formed the basis of approval Selzentry and in every advanced CCR5 inhibitor development program is used currently in progress. Besides the demand for tropism testing to for CCR5 for CCR5 inhibitor therapy, confirm the new DHHS guidelines, the potential benefits of testing following CCR5 inhibitor treatment failure, which determine if the patient is HIV would have experienced a shift in viral tropism during treatment.They add, from Puerto Ricoe next presidential has go further to do it over HIV the U.S. A priority, conclude that the latest domestic road of apathy advise not all bad and expensive but also unethical and a public health fault of the the greatest magnitude (Holtgrave / Scofield, Baltimore Sun.
