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...
In order to define the safe windows for co-dosing of metal-cation antacids with once daily administered raltegravir, this study will evaluate the effect of both calcium carbonate and magne...
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...
New options for first-line treatment of HIV-2 infection are needed. We evaluated an integrase inhibitor (raltegravir)-containing regimen.
Raltegravir 1200 mg once daily vs 400 mg twice daily, with emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, for previously untreated HIV-1 infection: Week 96 results from ONCEMRK, a randomized, double-blind, non-inferiority trial.
Raltegravir 1200mg (2x600mg tablets) once daily (QD) demonstrated non-inferior efficacy and similar safety to raltegravir 400mg BID at Week 48 of the ONCEMRK trial. Here we report the Week 96 results ...
Antiretroviral drugs, especially protease inhibitors (PI), are known to induce disorders of lipid and glucose metabolism. However, there are only a few reports of these side effects in patients treate...
Similar long-term efficacy of dual therapy containing raltegravir and a boosted protease inhibitor versus standard triple therapies in pretreated HIV-1-infected patients in a retrospective, real-life cohort of 14 years.
Raltegravir is used in many antiretroviral combinations, but its use in treatment-experienced patients without knowledge of baseline resistance is discussed controversially as a number of comparative ...
Long-term combination antiretroviral therapy often results in toxicity/tolerability problems, which are one of the main reasons for switching treatment. Despite the favorable profile of raltegravir (R...
A pyrrolidinone derivative and HIV INTEGRASE INHIBITOR that is used in combination with other ANTI-HIV AGENTS for the treatment of HIV INFECTION.
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.
