Revision Note
Previously, there was uncertain treatment data on 63 patients. Treatment data on these 63 patients are now available. In addition, more complete treatment history on many other patients were made available. Besides treatment history data, the study arm assignments were made for the 63 patients and have changed for 12 other patients. No other data has changed due to this revision.

The dataset includes data on the 839 patients for whom sequences and ARV histories are available and the 63 patients for whom sequences are available but the ARV history is uncertain. Both sets contain data on mutations, RNA levels and CD4 counts.
