CodeReason for Stopping Treatment
1Treatment failure (i.e. virological, immunological, and/or clinical failure
1.1Virological failure
1.2Partial virological failure
1.3Immunological failure - CD4 drop
1.4Clinical progression
2Abnormal fat redistribution
3Concern of cardiovascular disease
3.2Cardiovascular disease
4Hypersensitivity reaction
5Toxicity, predominantly from abdomen/G-I tract
5.1Toxicity - GI tract
5.2Toxicity - Liver
5.3Toxicity - Pancreas
6Toxicity, predominantly from nervous system
7Toxicity, predominantly from kidneys
8Toxicity, predominantly from endocrine system
9Haematological toxicity (anemia etc.)
10Hyperlactataemie/lactic acidosis
90Side effects - any of the above but unspecified
91Toxicity, not mentioned above
92Availability of more effective treatment (not specifically failure or side effect related)
92.1Simplified treatment available
92.2Treatment too complex
92.3Drug interaction
93Structured Treatment Interruption (STI)
93.1Structured Treatment Interruption (STI) - at high CD4
94Patient's wish/decision, not specified above
95Physician's decision, not specified above
97Study treatment
98Other causes, not specified above

Although most reasons mentioned above could be coded in ICD-10 codes, it is still certain that many reasons will never be defined in terms of ICD-10 (STI, physicians and patients decision), so to avoid a mixture of two different coding systems it is advised to go with the above list and build upon that for now.
