The FDA has approved dolutegravir (doll-you-TEG-rah-veer; Tivicay – Viiv Healthcare), an integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI), for treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults and in children ≥12 years old who weigh at least 40 kg. It is the third INSTI to be approved by the FDA; raltegravir and elvitegravir were approved earlier.

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.

Even though the incidence continues to decline in the United States, tuberculosis (TB) is still a common cause of death worldwide, and the prevalence of drug-resistant TB poses severe challenges to its treatment and control. Guidelines with detailed management recommendations are available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Thoracic Society and Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA).

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.

Drug Interactions with Simvastatin

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.

Tipranavir (Aptivus - Boehringer Ingelheim), a new protease inhibitor, has received accelerated approval from the FDA. It must be given with ritonavir (Norvir). The combination is indicated for use with other antiretrovirals to treat HIV infection in highly treatment-experienced adults who have ongoing viral replication or in those with HIV strains known to be resistant to multiple protease inhibitors.

Serious adverse interactions between drugs continue to be reported. Many of these are due to inhibition or induction of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, particularly CYP3A4. CYP3A is thought to be involved in the metabolism of more than 50 percent of currently prescribed drugs.2 CYP3A4, which is more abundantly expressed than CYP3A5, accounts for most CYP3A activity in vivo.

Tuberculosis (TB) is still a problem in the United States, even though the incidence continues to decline in most of the country (MMWR Morbid Mortal Wkly Rep 2004; 53:209). Treatment of TB can be divided into treatment of latent infection diagnosed by a positive PPD and treatment of active clinical TB. Guidelines with detailed management recommendations are available from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (MMWR Morbid Mortal Wkly Rep 2003; 52RR-11:1).

Atazanavir (Reyataz - Bristol-Myers Squibb), a new protease inhibitor (PI), and emtricitabine (Emtriva - Gilead), a nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) chemically similar to lamivudine, have been approved by the FDA for treatment of HIV-1 infection. Both are taken once daily, unlike most anti-HIV drugs.
