Date Issue Decision that hast been taken (red: Propositions, not decided yet)
30.5.07 HIV-RNA

Confirmatory HIV-RNA (in the central lab) will be done after each HIV-RNA elevation above 100cp/ml. This is not equivalent to failure but will allow rapid detection of increases

30.7.07 Genital In case of menstruation at baseline: Delay switch of therapy by 2-5 days until menstuation has stopped. Patients may then take the material at home for self collection, perform the self administered swab and send it in to the central lab the same day.
