To assess 48-week treatment responses, tolerability, and steady-state minimum plasma concentrations of ritonavir-boosted lopinavir monotherapy for salvage therapy in HIV-1 infected patients who failed antiretroviral regimens containing NRTI and NNRTI.
Name: lopinavir/ritonavir soft gel capsuleDescription: Ritonavir-boosted lopinavir in soft gel formulation at 400/100 mg and lamivudine at 150 mg were given twice daily.Type: Drug
Single Group Assignment
There is one SNP
Inclusion Criteria: 1. HIV-1 infected patients >18 years of age, 2. failed NNRTI-based antiretroviral therapy with M184V, thymidine analogue mutations (TAMs) and NNRTI-associated mutations 3. had plasma HIV-1 RNA >1,000 copies/mL. --- M184V ---
On the other hand, previous studies showed that continuation of lamivudine after emerging of the M184V mutation had somewhat benefit on immunological response and clinical progression in patients who had limited options of salvage regimens. --- M184V ---
