HIV and drug resistance

A recent study found more resistance to the antiretroviral medicine tenofovir than had previously been reported, with 20% resistance to tenofovir in patients with treatment failure in Europe and over 50% resistance in patients with treatment failure in sub-Saharan Africa... The study underlines the importance of rapidly identifying treatment failure through routine measurement of viral load suppression—this is the basis of the third pillar of UNAIDS’ 90–90–90 treatment target, that 90% of people accessing HIV treatment have suppressed viral loads.

People taking a large number of non-HIV-related medications more likely to stop or change HIV drugs

HIV-positive patients who are taking a large number of medications for the treatment of non-HIV-related conditions are at increased risk of stopping or changing their antiretroviral therapy (ART),

Undetectable & Low-level HIV Viral Replication

Even people who are adherent to their medication regimens may experience occasional “blips” in their viral loads, experience viral rebound or maintain a steady, if low, viral load above undetectable levels. To understand why some people struggle to achieve or remain undetectable, we spoke with Keith Henry, MD, an HIV specialist at Hennepin County Medical Center who has more than 25 years of experience caring for people with HIV.

Study: Protease Inhibitor Monotherapy Does Not Limit Future Treatment Options

A recent study published in The Lancet HIV provides evidence that HIV maintenance therapy with a provider-selected boosted protease inhibitor (PI) regimen does not increase the risk of drug resistance and thus preserves future treatment options. But questions remain as to whether PI-monotherapy could be a clinically useful and relevant long-term HIV maintenance strategy.

Two-drug maintenance therapy keeps viral load suppressed and may even have advantages over traditional ART

Two-drug antiretroviral therapy (ART) consisting of ritonavir-boosted atazanavir and lamivudine has comparable or better virological efficacy than traditional three-drug therapy based on ritonavir/atazanavir, according to a poster presentation at

Study shows effectiveness of switching antiretroviral therapy for HIV-infected children

A Columbia University study evaluated whether HIV-infected children in South Africa who had achieved viral suppression with one antiretroviral treatment could transition to efavirenz-based therapy, the recommended drug for children older than three years, without risk of viral failure. The researchers reported that the treatment program resulted in excellent sustained virological control.

Can dolutegravir dual therapy or monotherapy produce and maintain HIV suppression?

The potent integrase inhibitor dolutegravir taken with a single well-tolerated NRTI was able to fully suppress viral load in people initiating antiretroviral treatment for the first time, while
