Pilot Study of Raltegravir Lipodystrophy IISP
The substitution of raltegravir for the NRTIs will result in some reversal of the long term adverse effect of lipodystrophy (specifically peripheral lipoatrophy) that is associated with the chronic use of NRTIs. Changing the HAART regimen in patients with a sustained virological response from a PI plus NRTI to a regimen of the PI plus raltegravir will likely result in continued virologic efficacy.
A prospective, non-controlled, non-randomized, single center study of a treatment regimen of a protease inhibitor or a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor in combination with raltegravir in patients with HIV-1 infection who have been, and continue to be, fully controlled on a standard HAART regimen of a PI or an NNRTI plus 2 NRTIs, and the effect of the change in regimen on peripheral fat distribution.
This pilot study will contain 30 patients who will be followed over a period of one year starting from the date of the medication change from an NRTI-based regimen to a raltegravir-based NRTI-sparing regimen. Potential changes in fat distribution (fat content as assessed by fat volume) will be measured with serial MRI's of the thighs.

The main purpose of this protocol is to study the effect of an HIV medication known as Raltegravir on Buprenorphine in people who have been receiving the same dose of Buprenorphine for at ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether interactions between raltegravir and lamotrigine take place and to study the safety of the combination raltegravir/lamotrigine before used...
To compare the steady-state pharmacokinetics and short-term efficacy and safety of two dosing strategies of raltegravir and atazanavir in virologically suppressed HIV-infected adults recei...
This study will assess the virologic efficacy and risk of liver toxicity of raltegravir-based regimens in HIV/HCV co-infected individuals, particularly in those starting ARV at lower CD4 c...
The licensed dose of raltegravir is 400 mg twice daily with or without food. Raltegravir is metabolized predominantly through glucuronidation by UGT1A1. Atazanavir increases the plasma con...
Raltegravir was the first HIV integrase strand-transfer inhibitor to be approved by the US FDA, in October 2007, for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in combination with other antiretroviral agents. R...
ATP-binding cassette transporter G2 (ABCG2) is expressed on the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) side of choroid plexus epithelial cells, which form the blood-CSF barrier. Raltegravir was recently identified...
The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalence and patterns of resistance to integrase strand transfer inhibitors (INSTIs) in patients experiencing virological failure on raltegravir-ba...
Previous studies of raltegravir and rifampicin have not studied the interaction when rifampicin is dosed intermittently. This study aimed to assess the pharmacokinetics of twice daily raltegravir and ...
Background The efficacy and toxic effects of nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) are uncertain when these agents are used with a protease inhibitor in second-line therapy for human imm...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Infection by a variety of fungi, usually through four possible mechanisms: superficial infection producing conjunctivitis, keratitis, or lacrimal obstruction; extension of infection from neighboring structures - skin, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx; direct introduction during surgery or accidental penetrating trauma; or via the blood or lymphatic routes in patients with underlying mycoses.
A nontuberculous infection when occurring in humans. It is characterized by pulmonary disease, lymphadenitis in children, and systemic disease in AIDS patients. Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare infection of birds and swine results in tuberculosis.
Infection involving the tissues or organs in the PELVIS.
Infection in humans and animals caused by fungi in the class Zygomycetes. It includes MUCORMYCOSIS and entomophthoramycosis. The latter is a tropical infection of subcutaneous tissue or paranasal sinuses caused by fungi in the order Entomophthorales. Phycomycosis, closely related to zygomycosis, describes infection with members of Phycomycetes, an obsolete classification.
Any infection which a patient contracts in a health-care institution.
