Research in Vietnam

Drs. Christine Wanke, Sherwood Gorbach, Jim Hellinger, Michael Jordan and Alice Tang are collaborating with colleagues in Hanoi, Vietnam to investigate the nutritional status of HIV-positive and HIV-negative injecting drug users (IDUs) as part of the Tufts Nutritional Collaborative program.

Dr. Jordan is studying the emergence of HIV drug resistance in a population of HIV infected individuals beginning first-line ART in Hanoi, Vietnam and developing allele-specific PCR assays to detect the emergence of low frequency HIV drug resistance mutations and their impact on clinical outcomes.
