Coadministration with lopinavir and ritonavir decreases exposure to BILR 355, a nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor, in healthy volunteers. [2011.07]
The objective of this investigation was to evaluate the pharmacokinetic interaction of lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) with BILR 355. In group A, 26 healthy participants were administered LPV/r (400mg/100mg) twice daily for 14 days, followed by coadministration of BILR 355, 150 mg twice daily for an additional 7 days...
Beneficial effects of a switch to a Lopinavir/ritonavir-containing regimen for patients with partial or no immune reconstitution with highly active antiretroviral therapy despite complete viral suppression. [2011.06]
The purpose of this study was to determine if switching to an Lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r)-containing regimen resulted in greater immune reconstitution in patients with immunologic failure despite complete viral suppression with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART)... Switching patients to an LPV/r-containing regimen improved CD4(+) counts in patients with prior immunologic failure, and this may be due to an effect of LPV/r on apoptosis.
Comparative gender analysis of the efficacy and safety of atazanavir/ritonavir and lopinavir/ritonavir at 96 weeks in the CASTLE study. [2011.02]
OBJECTIVES: To examine whether the overall results of the CASTLE study pertain to both genders, we analysed the efficacy and safety of atazanavir/ritonavir and lopinavir/ritonavir in 277 female and 606 male patients in the open-label, multinational trial over 96 weeks. The trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT00272779... CONCLUSIONS: Once-daily atazanavir/ritonavir is an effective and well-tolerated therapeutic option for women and men with HIV-1 infection. The sex-based differences in response may be due to higher discontinuation rates in women.
The effect of lopinavir/ritonavir and darunavir/ritonavir on the HIV integrase inhibitor S/GSK1349572 in healthy participants. [2011.02]
S/GSK1349572 is an unboosted, once-daily integrase inhibitor with a novel resistance profile. As standard of care for patients infected with HIV is combination therapy, the potential interaction between S/GSK1349572 and ritonavir-boosted protease inhibitors was evaluated... The most frequent drug-related AEs were diarrhea, dizziness, and headache.
Fat tissue distribution changes in HIV-infected patients treated with lopinavir/ritonavir. Results of the MONARK trial. [2011.01.01]
Given the decline in mortality among HIV-infected patients, it has become increasingly important to consider delayed disease-related and/or anti-HIV therapy-related adverse effects, such as lipodystrophy, when choosing initial therapy. Data from the MONARK trial allowed for comparison of the potential lipodystrophic effects of lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) monotherapy with those of triple therapy with LPV/r plus zidovudine (ZDV) and lamivudine (3TC)...
