Interactions between Antiretroviral Therapy and HIV Drug Resistance

Dr. Paganotti is a research associate at BUP where he researches and supervises the BUP Core Lab at the University of Botswana and the BUP Lab in the National Health Lab in Gaborone. His main research focus examines the possible interaction between antiretroviral therapy and HIV drug resistance, both looking at human poor metabolizer and ultra-rapid metabolizer alleles and the associated risk of speeding virus drug resistance selection in Botswana. He also studies the modality of Human Herpesvirus 8 of mother- to-child transmission through saliva applied on the child's skin after the bites of blood feeding arthropods.
