Abbreviated ART noninferior to continuous ART in children with HIV

February 27, 2015

SEATTLE —Sustiva-based, first-line ART with “weekend breaks” was noninferior to continuous therapy in HIV-1 infected adolescents, demonstrating similar suppression, resistance and safety, according to data presented at CROI 2015.

“The rationale behind this study was to try to normalize the life experience for young people who have problems with facing lifelong therapy, particularly with adherence into adolescence because of the secrecy and burden that often surrounds antiretroviral treatment,” researcher Karina M. Butler, MD, from Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin in Dublin, said during a press conference.
