Drug-Resistant HIV Strain Reported in Seattle

Four Seattle-area men have tested positive for similar strains of HIV that are highly resistant to antiretroviral drug classes. What’s the link?

“In the current cluster, all four were men who had sex with men; all had a history of methamphetamine use, and had multiple, mostly anonymous, sexual partners. The partners who have been found to date either were not HIV-infected or their HIV infection was not related to the current drug resistant strain.”
