Switching to a Fixed Dose Combination of Bictegravir/Emtricitabine/Tenofovir Alafenamide (B/F/TAF) in HIV-1 Infected Marginalized Populations Who Are Virologically Suppressed

2019-10-24 12:49:32 | BioPortfolio


In an effort to engage more HIV-infected PWUD into care, and ensure treatment adherence and efficacy, simplification of older, multi-tablet regimens is required. Newer, more potent molecules can also overcome resistant that has persisted with previous regimens, while simultaneously providing a high barrier to resistance. The co-formulation of B/F/TAF is a viable switch-option for patients who have experienced lower adherence with previous regimens due to high pill burden, or for those requiring a more potent regimen due to emergent resistances. The formal evaluation of B/F/TAF in this context will allow us to optimize care for HIV-infected PWUD.
