New HIV therapy reduces virus, boosts immunity in drug-resistant patients

Ibaluzimab, a CD4 receptor inhibitor and the first monoclonal antibody developed as an anti-HIV drug, was approved for treatment in the US for people with multiply drug-resistant HIV (MDR-HIV) last February. In the results of a phase III study published today, 83% of a group of patients with MDR-HIV achieved an undetectable viral load on ibaluzimab and 50% maintained this over six months. Details of this and another phase III study will be presented later htis year.

Raltegravir-resistant HIV stays susceptible to dolutegravir in lab

HIV resistant to the integrase inhibitor raltegravir and isolated from patients taking a failing raltegravir regimen remained largely susceptible to the integrase inhibitor dolutegravir in phenotypic susceptibility testing. Raltegravir-resistant virus carrying a mutation at position Q148 had more reduced susceptibility to dolutegravir than isolates with other raltegravir mutations.

Mutation breaks HIV's resistance to drugs

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can contain dozens of different mutations, called polymorphisms. In a recent study an international team of researchers found that one of those mutations, called 172K, made certain forms of the virus more susceptible to treatment. Soon, doctors will be able to use this knowledge to improve the drug regimen they prescribe to HIV-infected individuals.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
