Federal Guidelines Recommend New HIV Testing Method

The revised DHHS guidelines, titled Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in HIV-1-Infected Adults and Adolescents, recommend "that a genotypic tropism assay be used as an alternative to a phenotypic tropism assay before initiation of a CCR5 antagonist-containing regimen." While prior HHS guidelines only recommended phenotypic assays, medical guidelines in Europe have supported genotypic HIV tropism tests since 2011.

The DHHS guidelines are available at: http://aidsinfo.nih.gov/guidelines/html/1/adult-and-adolescent-arv-guidelines/0/

"Genotyping is an example of how diagnostic innovation can expand clinical options for physicians while driving down costs for payers and patients," said Rick L. Pesano , M.D., Ph.D., medical director, infectious diseases, Quest Diagnostics. "We expect this method will provide the basis for developing additional diagnostic innovations that are clinically valuable and more cost effective than traditional techniques."

Quest Diagnostics has offered its clinical genotypic tropism test as a laboratory-developed test, named the Quest Diagnostics HIV-1 Tropism with Reflex to Ultradeep sequencing (UDS), since the spring of 2012. The company's advanced genetics laboratory in San Juan Capistrano, California, developed, validated and performs the test for clinicians in the United States. Quest Diagnostics can provide test results in as few as 10 business days, compared to average turnaround times of two to three weeks for phenotypic tests, and at roughly half the list price for the standard phenotypic test.

In late 2012, the peer-reviewed, open-access journal PLOS ONE published a study that found the Quest Diagnostics deep-sequencing genotypic method predicte
