The AMPLICOR HIV-1 MONITOR Test, v1.5 is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for the quantification of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) RNA in human plasma. The test can be used to assess patient prognosis by measuring the baseline HIV-1 RNA level and to monitor the effects of anti-retroviral therapy by measuring changes in plasma HIV-1 RNA levels during the course of anti-retroviral treatment.
The Gold Standard in Viral Load Assessment
The AMPLICOR HIV-1 MONITOR Test was the first commercial FDA-approved test to quantify the amount of HIV-1 RNA. This test has been used for FDA approval of most of the currently approved anti-retroviral drugs. With a limited number of treatment regimens available to HIV-1 patients, the accurate monitoring of viral load levels is essential to establish and monitor the effectiveness of therapeutic regimens, assess the potential of drug resistance and identify treatment failure.
