to validate eGFR Thai equation in HIV-infected adults [ Time Frame: Blood specimens were drawn to assess plasma radioactivity at 5, 10, 20, 30, 60, 90, 120, 180, and 240 minutes post 99mTc-DTPA injection ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • eGFR by C-G formula, MDRD, CKD-EPI [ Time Frame: June 2010 to May 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The eGFR values will be calculated by the re-expressed IDMS traceable MDRD, C-G, and CKD-EPI.
  • GFR by cystatin C [ Time Frame: June 2010 to May 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serum for cystatin C levels will be collected at the time of serum creatinine collection. Cystatin C will be measured by quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay. GFR will be estimated from the cystatin C measurement using the following equation18: Cystatin C GFR=86.7/cystatin-4.2.
  • GFR by urine 24 hours [ Time Frame: June 2010 to May 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Urine will be collected over a 24-hour period. Verbal and written instructions for collecting urine at home will be given to the patients. Containers (5litres) will be provided for all patients. Creatinine clearance (CrCl) will be calculated using the following equation: CrCl= Urine Cr/Serum cr xQu ; where Qu is the urine volume divided by the time of the actual collection. CrCl estimates will be adjusted for BSA.
  • TDF plasma levels [ Time Frame: June 2010 to May 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    TDF plasma concentrations are assessed by using a validated high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-mass method. Blood will be collected in lithium-heparin or sodium-heparin tube at mid dose (10-12 hr post dose of TDF). The exact times of sampling will be recorded in the case report forms. Plasma will be stored at - 20 C until analysis and will be transferred to - 80 C for long term storage at HIV-NAT laboratory. Blood for pharmacokinetic study will be obtained at HIV-NAT. The TDF drug level will be determined by HPLC method at the HIV-NAT PK laboratory in Bangkok.

Tenofovir Renal Toxicity and Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) Validation
Incidence and Predictor of TDF Associated Nephrotoxicity and Pharmacokinetic of TDF in HIV-1 Infected Thai Patients: A Sub-study of HIV-NAT 006 Long Term Cohort
To assess and validate equation eGFR in HIV-infected subjects and -uninfected Thai patients

With significant reductions in mortality and risk of progression to AIDS with antiretroviral therapy (ART), complications of long-standing HIV infection and treatment, including renal disease, have become increasingly important. Aging, concomitant metabolic diseases, and use of potentially nephrotoxic ART lead to higher risk for renal disease in HIV-infected persons.WHO encourage TDF as first line ARV regimen. The data on TDF related renal toxicity in Asian population is limited.

For this cohort, we plan to look at these topics:

  1. proximal tubular dysfunction between TDF and non-TDF user
  2. incidence and predictor of TDF related renal toxicity
  3. TDF plasma concentrations
  4. Pharmacokinetic of TDF when used with boosted DRV, boosted ATV, and boosted LPV in Thai population
  5. Bone density and vitamin D in patients with and without hypophosphatemia.
  6. Pharmacogenomic of TDF in Thai population

  4. stored samples (PBMC) for pharmacogenomic study of transporter gene ie Organic Acid Transporter (OAT)
  5. serum for cystanin C ( stored sample prior taking ARV and present time)
  6. intensive 24 hours pharmacokinetic study of TDF in 20 patients
