Researchers attribute the decline in multidrug-resistant virus, which began in 2004, to newer, highly potent antiretrovirals.
The attachment inhibitor plus an optimized antiretroviral background regimen suppressed HIV in the majority of study participants.
The investigational, injectable, long-acting antiretroviral is a potential new option for those with multidrug resistance.
Currently, Gilead Sciences’ HIV regimen is not approved to treat drug-resistant virus.
However, because this combo is not as effective as the current standard treatment, the search for new options continues.
The Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Seattle saw many important studies that are advancing the fight against HIV.
Researchers followed a small group of people with highly drug-resistant virus taking injectable antibody.
This held true even among those with resistance to nucleoside/nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
This finding refers specifically to viral mutations conferring resistance to the emtricitabine component of the two-drug tablet Truvada.
The bacterial infection, passed through contact with feces, can prompt diarrhea, stomach cramps, fever, vomiting, weakness and fatigue.
Researchers gave the antibody treatment to those with multidrug-resistant HIV along with an optimized antiretroviral regimen.
Fostemsavir offers HIV treatment hope to those with no other options.
HIV, anti-vaxxers, dengue fever and weak primary health care make the World Health Organization’s list of priorities.
A review of randomized controlled trials found that the main apparent benefit of such testing occurred among those with virologic failure.
The CDC has issued increasingly urgent warnings about the possible emergence of drug-resistant strains of the STI.
In a recent trial, the investigational entry inhibitor helped fully suppress HIV in a majority of those with multidrug-resistant virus.
