Abbott Receives Supplemental FDA Approval for its Best-in-Class in Sensitivity RealTime HIV-1 Viral Load Test
Date:8/19/2007

IV-1 Test

Quantitative measurements of HIV-1 levels in blood have greatly contributed to the understanding of the process by which the virus infection leads to disease and has been shown to be an essential parameter in prognosis and management of HIV infected individuals. Decisions regarding initiation or changes in antiretroviral therapy are guided by monitoring plasma HIV-1 levels or viral load, CD4-T cell count, and the patient's clinical condition. The goal of antiretroviral therapy is to reduce the virus in plasma to below detectable levels.

The RealTime test is intended for use in conjunction with clinical presentation and other laboratory markers as an indicator of disease prognosis and for use as an aid in assessing viral response to antiretroviral treatment as measured by changes in plasma HIV-1 RNA levels. The assay is not intended to be used as a donor-screening test for HIV-1 or as a diagnostic test to confirm the presence of HIV-1 infection.
