- HIV viral load [ Time Frame: 12 month ]The primary analyses of the 12-month trial data will compare the two study groups with respect to (i) change from baseline in CD4 T-cell count; and (ii) proportion of patients whose HIV viral load (VL) level is detectable. We will use repeated-measures analysis techniques to estimate longitudinal prevalence at the population level (via generalized estimating equations) and at the individual levels (via generalized linear mixed models).
- Level of antiretroviral medication in hair [ Time Frame: 12 month ]We will evaluate the antiretroviral level in hair samples from patients to determine compliance with medications.
