3 Attachment Fusion Release of RNA Reverse transcription Integration Transcription Maturation and budding Assembly

4 Characteristics of HIV-1 infection 1.High virus replication rate ( virus particles / day) 2.Rapid virus clearance (T ½ cells producing virus: <1 day; T ½ free virus in plasma: a few hrs) 3.Virus latency (1:10 6 resting CD4 T cells) 4.Chronic immune activation and inflammation 5.CD4 T-cell depletion ( cells lost daily) 6.Progressive immune deficient state 7.Continuous virus genetic evolution Wong 1997; Chun 1997; Siliciano 2003; Strain 2003; Han 2007

5 Mechanisms of HIV genetic evolution 1.RT-driven mutagenesis –Rate: ~1 wrong incorporation per genome round –All possible point mutations generated daily 2. APOBEC-driven mutagenesis –Deamination of cytosine residues in nascent DNA –G A hypermutation 3. Recombination –Rate: 7-30 per genome round –Hybrid virus progeny produced from different strains

6 Dominant quasispecies Escape from pressure Preserved fitness rapid turnover rapid adaptation

7 Consequences of HIV genetic variability At the population level Continuous emergence of new variants At the patient level Escape from immune pressure Escape from drug pressure Increased fitness and pathogenicity Challenge for diagnostic and monitoring assays

8 Emergence and evolution of resistance Increasing number of mutations Accumulation of mutations on the same viral genome Initially reduced viral fitness Compensatory changes restore fitness EvolutionEmergence Single mutant Double mutant Triple mutant

9 Key principles of resistance Drug-resistant mutants are selected (not created) by drug pressure if virological suppression is incomplete Ongoing virus replication under drug pressure leads to the evolution of resistance and cross-resistance Resistant mutants often display reduced fitness but compensatory changes emerge over time that partially restore virus fitness

10 Plasma HIV RNA Viral gene (e.g., RT) PCR Sequencing Mutations RT M184V Methionine codon 184 of RT ATG / AUG GTG / GUG

11 Plasma HIV RNA PCR Defective laboratory HIV vector (e.g., RT _ ) Infectious HIV Culture with escalating drug concentrations Fold-changes in IC 50 relative to wild-type M184V = 100 FC for 3TC Viral gene (e.g., RT)

12 Detection of resistant mutants Detected by ultrasensitive methods Mutation Frequency Detected by routine methods Natural background

14 Drug pressure Resistant Wild-type 20-30% Limit of detection

15 Key principles of resistance Once drug pressure is removed, resistant mutants are outgrown by fitter wild-type virus and become undetectable by routine tests Resistance test results obtained after therapy is discontinued are not reliable Resistant mutants persist at low frequency in plasma and are archived in latently infected cells Resistance is long-lasting Resistance test results must be interpreted in the context of the patients treatment history

17 Drug pressure Transmission Transmitted drug resistance Stable after transmission Gradual reversion over time, sometimes incomplete Persistence at low frequency in plasma Persistence in latently infected cells

18 Genetic barrier Key concepts

19 Genetic barrier to resistance Defined by: Number of mutations required to compromise activity Impact of each mutation on drug susceptibility Interactions between mutations Fitness cost of resistance Drug concentration Resistant Wild-type

28 Hypersusceptibility Key concepts

29 Mechanisms of NRTI resistance: Primer unblocking T215Y-mediated resistance Hydrolytic removal of the chain-terminating NRTI enables DNA synthesis to resume The pyrophosphate donor in most cells is ATP M184V antagonizes the process 3TC partially restores susceptibility to ZDV, d4T and TDF in the presence of TAMs 3TC antagonizes the emergence of TAMs P P P P P P P P P P P P P P P P Gotte, J Virol 2000

30 Residual activity Key concepts

31 Response Resistance Lower cut-off = Level of resistance beyond which response begins to fall off Upper cut-off = Level of resistance beyond which clinical response is lost Zone of intermediate response Resistance as a continuum

32 Partial treatment interruption in patients with resistance reveals residual activity Deeks, CROI 2005

33 Key principles of resistance Resistance moves along a continuum and increasing numbers of mutations lead to progressive loss of responses Residual activity is possible despite the presence of extensive resistance (best evidence for the NRTIs) Resistance carries a fitness cost that reduces viral replication Antagonistic effects between mutations can have beneficial effects

34 Clinical implications for patients with treatment failure The likelihood of drug-resistance depends upon the drug, the regimen and the level of adherence When selecting a new regimen, aim for at least 2 fully active drugs Avoid functional monotherapy with drugs that have a low genetic barrier If options are limited, exploit residual activity and hypersusceptibility effects – continue the NRTIs rather than stopping therapy
