does anybody know what the success rate of atripla is,for example if i remain undetectable for several VL tests after an udetectable test has been reached and i continue to be adherant to my meds is there any info on how long this treatment will work,i know its a little tricky and everyone may be different and cannot predict the future but maybe there is a study or general idea as to this question, or is it just a wait and see type of thing? thanks for any responses. luckyone

Theorectically if you stay adherent and nondetectable you can stay on it as long as you want as the hiv cant mutate if its undetectable. Also i was reading a thread on the johnshopkins hiv website where the respected dr gallant said that anyone who stays undetectable for several years with a cd4 count over 500 can be expected to live a normal lifespan the same as anyone non hiv. This was from a from a recent french cohort study.

In studies, about 70-80%, ie 7-8 out of 10 who started the treatment achieved an undetectable viral load (roughly speaking).

However, you cannot extrapolate from studies to you, either it will work, or it won't. If you have no resistance before starting, and are adherent, then it will work except in very rare circumstances.
