The FDA has approved Biktarvy (Gilead), a once-daily, fixed-dose combination of bictegravir, a new integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI), and the nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide (TAF), for treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults. The new combination is indicated for use in patients who are antiretroviral-naive or who have been virologically suppressed on a stable antiretroviral regimen for ≥3 months with no history of treatment failure and no known substitutions associated with resistance to any component of the combination.

The FDA has approved Odefsey (Gilead), a once-daily, fixed-dose combination of the non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) rilpivirine and the nucleoside/nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide, for initial treatment of HIV-1 infection in patients with HIV-1 RNA (viral load) ≤100,000 copies/mL or to replace a stable antiretroviral regimen in patients who have been virologically suppressed (viral load <50 copies/mL) for at least six months with no history of treatment failure.

The FDA has approved elvitegravir (Vitekta – Gilead), an integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI), for use with a protease inhibitor (PI) plus ritonavir and other antiretroviral drugs for treatment of HIV-1 infection in treatment-experienced adults. Elvitegravir is also available in a fixed-dose combination (Stribild) with the pharmacokinetic enhancer cobicistat and the nucleoside/nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (DF). A similar combination (Genvoya) that includes tenofovir alafenamide instead of tenofovir DF was recently approved by the FDA and will be reviewed in a future issue.

Cobicistat (Tybost) and Combinations for HIV

   
The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics • November 23, 2015;  (Issue 1482)

Cobicistat, a pharmacokinetic enhancer that boosts levels of some HIV drugs but has no antiretroviral activity of its own, is now available alone as Tybost (Gilead) and in fixed-dose combinations with the protease inhibitors atazanavir (Evotaz — BMS) and darunavir (Prezcobix — Janssen) for treatment of HIV-1 infection. Both atazanavir and darunavir have traditionally been used in combination with the CYP3A inhibitor ritonavir (Norvir) to boost their serum concentrations, but neither is available in a fixed-dose combination with ritonavir.

The FDA has approved Viekira Pak (Abbvie), a fixed-dose combination of two new direct-acting antiviral agents (ombitasvir, paritaprevir) with the pharmacologic enhancer ritonavir in one tablet, co-packaged with a third new direct-acting antiviral agent (dasabuvir) in a second tablet, for oral treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1 infection. Genotype 1 is responsible for 70-80% of HCV infections in the US.

Guidelines for use of antiretroviral agents continue to shift toward earlier and more continuous treatment, both to treat the patient and to prevent transmission of the disease to others. Resistance testing is now recommended when antiretroviral drugs are started. Increases in HIV RNA levels ("viral load") while on therapy may indicate development of drug resistance, requiring further testing and a change in the treatment regimen. Antiretroviral drugs interact with each other and with many other drugs; complete information on these interactions is available at www.aidsinfo.nih.gov.

New guidelines for use of antiretroviral agents have been published, with a shift towards earlier and more continuous treatment. HIV infection is treated with combinations of antiretroviral drugs depending on the patientÆs HIV RNA levels ("viral load") and CD4 cell count. Increases in viral load while on therapy may indicate development of drug resistance, requiring further testing and a change in treatment regimen. Resistance testing is now recommended when a patient is first seen, regardless of when therapy will be started.

A recent letter to the editor of the Annals of Internal Medicine documented a single case of myopathy apparently due to an interaction between simvastatin (Zocor, and others) and green tea. Since it became available generically, simvastatin has surpassed atorvastatin (Lipitor) as the best selling statin. As such, it is probably the most common cause of statin-induced myopathy, which is often a result of drug interactions.

The approval of new drugs and continuing concerns about drug toxicity and resistance have prompted new antiretroviral treatment guidelines. Resistance testing is not recommended before starting antiretroviral therapy. HIV infection is treated with combinations of antiretroviral drugs while monitoring the patient's HIV RNA levels ("viral load") and CD4 cell count. Increases in viral load while on therapy may indicate development of drug resistance requiring further testing and a change in treatment regimen.
