Terms and conditions for use of HIV-TRePS
- HIV-TRePS is an on-line software programme ("Programme") which enables physicians to input specific user-defined information in order to obtain predictions concerning the use of combinations of antiretroviral drugs ("Predictions").
- The Predictions provided by the Programme are produced by an experimental system that is unproven and intended for research use only.
- Responses to HIV treatment are complex and affected by a number of factors not taken into account by the Programme.
- The selection of drugs for the treatment of HIV infection is the responsibility of the physician in consultation with the patient and reliance should not be placed on the Predictions for such purposes.
- The Predictions are not intended to replace professional medical care and attention by a qualified medical practitioner and consequently the RDI does not accept any responsibility for the selection of drugs, the patient's response to treatment or differences between the Predictions and patients’ responses.
- Data entered into the Programme will be stored on the RDI’s computers for the purposes of producing the Predictions, may be used thereafter by the RDI for research purposes but will not be shared with third parties.
