ACTG 5202 PDF

Vor Plasma HIV-1 RNA decline within axtg first two weeks of treatment is comparable for nevirapine, efavirenz, or both drugs combined and is not predictive of long-term virologic efficacy: In the overall ACTG A study population, the relationship between change in viral load from entry to week 4 and time to virologic failure was catg with univariate and multivariable Cox proportional hazards models. Plasma HIV-1 RNA dynamics in antiretroviral-naive subjects receiving either triple-nucleoside or efavirenz-containing regimens: Eric Daar noted that many of these were abacavir hypersensitivity reactions [HSR], as HLA screening was not in standard practice at the time. The Journal of infectious diseases. Patterns of viral load changes in the early viral load substudy mirrored the patterns observed in the overall study. All subjects provided written informed consent prior to study entry. The acttg design therefore included four different major comparisons, one for each permutation of study drugs: FischlMD, 6 Andrew R.

During the study, kidney health generally improved regardless of the regimen used. This difference was statistically significant.

Abacavir in Kivexa was associated with an increased risk of elevated lipids in the blood whether efavirenz or atazanavir-ritonavir was used. However, hypersensitivity testing via a simple blood test is increasingly done by doctors before abacavir is prescribed, so the risk of this reaction is now very, very low in most high-income countries.

In ACTG , hypersensitivity testing was not part of the protocol and so there was an increased risk of suspected hypersensitivity reactions among people assigned to receive Kivexa, which contains abacavir.

Conclusions -- Comparing Atazanavir and Efavirenz Here are some of the conclusions that the ACTG team arrived at when comparing atazanavir-ritonavir to efavirenz: Both regimens seemed equally effective. However, when a regimen failed, users of atazanavir-ritonavir were less likely than efavirenz users to develop resistance to nukes.

Atazanavir-ritonavir was generally associated with smaller increases in lipid levels with any nuke compared to efavirenz. When used with Truvada, atazanvir-ritonavir may modestly affect kidney health. Abstract 59 LB. Sean R. Hosein Sean R. He has been covering HIV news since

Lipoproteins are found in both blood plasma and cell membranes. They are the mode of transport for cholesterol through the bloodstream and lymphatic fluid. ACTG was a blinded clinical trial in which treatment-naive patients were randomised to begin one of four different antiretroviral combinations. Participants in the high viral load stratum were unblinded — i. Data from this point in the study comparisons of the two nucleoside combinations for patients with high viral loads , have been presented and widely circulated.
