Logo_RDI.pngThe HIV Resistance Response Database Initiative (RDI) is made up of a small research team based in the UK, an International Scientific Advisory Group, and a network of collaborators and supporters. The main activities of the RDI are exploring the relationship between changes in the genetic code of HIV (genotype), as well as other clinical and laboratory factors and response to HIV drug therapy, on the basis of which computational models are developed to help physicians and their patients to select the best individualised combination of drugs in situations where resistant measurements are not possible.

The developed models power the RDI's HIV Treatment Response Prediction System (HIV-TRePS), a free online tool enabling informed, individualised treatment decision-making.
