Answer

Baseline HIV RNA copy number (copies/mL) and associated intermediate-term risk for death in HIV-infected children is as follows [16] :

  • Undetectable (ie, ≤4,000): 24%

  • 4,001-50,000: 28%

  • 50,001- 100,000: 15%

  • 100,001- 500,000: 40%

  • 500,001-1,000,00: 40%

  • 1,000,000: 71%
