Dr. Martin Raff answered

Specializes in Infectious Disease

The HIV mutates frequently, and when a mutation produces resistance to protease inhibitors this will allow that form of the virus to multiply over other forms which are sensitive. That is one of the reasons for a drug combination which makes single mutational changes less likely to be favorable to the virus.
