Pairwise Comparison of genotypic tropism prediction between one reference center and 10 European laboratories
  Rolf Kaiser


In the abstract the authors say "genotypic tropism testing using proviral DNA shows a higher rate of CXCR4 detection as compared with genotypic tropism testing using viral RNA. In combination with a high FPR cutoff of 20% reasonable safety for the patients can be realized. In our opinion, genotypic tropism testing from proviral DNA provides an excellent tool for switching strategies at a viral load below detection limit."
