TDF/FTC-to-ABC/3TC switch maintains viral suppression, eases bone markers

A switch from tenofovir/emtricitabine (TDF/FTC) to abacavir/lamivudine (ABC/3TC), both with atazanavir/ritonavir, maintained viral suppression through 48 weeks in a noninferiority analysis and improved bone and kidney markers. Four people in the ABC/3TC arm (2%) and one in the TDF/FTC arm (1%) had study-defined virologic failure by week 48.
