BACKGROUND: Limited data are available for once-daily (QD) darunavir (DRV)/ritonavir (r) in the pediatric population. Coadministration of etravirine (ETR) may alter the pharmacokinetics (PK) of DRV. We evaluated the PK interactions between DRV/r (QD) and ETR QD or twice-daily (BID) in children, adolescents, and young adults. METHODS: Human immunodeficiency virus-infected subjects 9 to < 24 years old on optimized background therapy including DRV/r 800/100 mg QD alone or combined with ETR 200 mg BID or ETR 400 mg QD were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Genotyping tests were developed to attenuate the impact of viral resistance. Information about the efficacy in genotype base antiretroviral therapy in children is rare and even more in low- and middle-income countries. METHODS: Sixteen children with antiretroviral therapy (ART) failure and triple-class drug-resistant viruses were included in this study. Protease and retrotranscriptase genotypes were available for all patients. Switch of ART regimen was guided by genotyping data...

BACKGROUND: Surveillance for mid- and long-term antiretroviral therapy (ART) toxicity in children is important for informing treatment guidelines. We assessed the safety of darunavir (DRV) and atazanavir (ATV), commonly used as second-line protease inhibitors following lopinavir/ritonavir, in Europe and Thailand. METHODS: Cohorts contributed individual patient data on adverse events (AE) in those aged <18 years taking DRV and ATV, respectively, to 02/2014. Rates of Division of AIDS (DAIDS) grade ≥3 laboratory AEs were calculated...

Darunavir (Prezista®), administered in combination with ritonavir and background antiretroviral therapy, is approved in the USA and the EU for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in pediatric patients aged ≥3 years. Ritonavir-boosted darunavir provided effective virologic suppression in treatment-naïve adolescents with HIV-1 infection, according to the results of the noncomparative, phase II DIONE trial. Ritonavir-boosted darunavir also had sustained efficacy in treatment-experienced children and/or adolescents with HIV-1 infection, according to the results of the noncomparative, phase II DELPHI and ARIEL trials...

An existing population pharmacokinetic model of darunavir in adults was updated using pediatric data from two studies evaluating weight-based, once-daily dosing of darunavir/ritonavir (ARIEL, NCT00919854 and DIONE, NCT00915655). The model was then used to provide once-daily dosing recommendations for darunavir/ritonavir in pediatric patients aged ≥3 to <12 years. The final model comprised two compartments with first-order absorption and apparent clearance dependent on the concentration of α1-acid glycoprotein...

The introduction of protease inhibitors (PI) containing antiretroviral regimens in the treatment of HIV infection in infants, children, and adolescents has dramatically decreased morbidity and mortality. Darunavir, the latest PI to be FDA approved for pediatric patients older than 6 years and currently the preferred PI for use in adult patients, was added as an alternative PI for use in children based on a combination of data from both adult and pediatric trials. This review of darunavir in the treatment of HIV-infected children and adolescents looks at the major published clinical trials findings, pharmacokinetic and resistance studies, and preliminary data on use in younger children...

The use of antiretroviral drugs (ARVDs) in a mother and a child can reduce the risk of vertical transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) to less than 1%; therefore, highly active antiretroviral therapy is used in all pregnant women regardless of indications for HIV-infection treatment. The major requirements for choosing an ARVD to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission are its high safety for a pregnant woman, a fetus, and a baby and its high therapeutic efficacy. Clinical trials of darunavir (DRV) in adults and children have shown a high virologic response, good tolerance, and safety...

The latest HIV-1 protease inhibitor (PI) darunavir (Prezista™) has a high genetic barrier to resistance development and is active against wild-type HIV and HIV strains no longer susceptible to some older PIs. Ritonavir-boosted darunavir, as a component of antiretroviral therapy (ART), is indicated for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adult and paediatric patients (aged ≥3 years), with or without treatment experience (details vary depending on region of approval). Several open-label or partially-blinded trials have evaluated the efficacy of ritonavir-boosted darunavir ART regimens for up to 192 weeks in these settings...

The impact of antiretroviral therapy (ART) on the natural history of HIV-1 infection has resulted in dramatic reductions in disease-associated morbidity and mortality. Additionally, the epidemiology of HIV-1 infection worldwide is changing, as women now represent a substantial proportion of infected adults. As more highly effective and tolerable antiretroviral regimens become available, and as the prevention of mother-to-child transmission becomes an attainable goal in the management of HIV-infected individuals, more and more HIV-positive women are choosing to become pregnant and have children...

BACKGROUND: Data on the use of ritonavir-boosted darunavir (DRV/r) and/or raltegravir (RAL) in resource-limited settings are rare and there is currently no published data regarding their use among African children. Botswana has recently made DRV/r and RAL available for patients failing second-line antiretroviral therapy (ART). METHODS: Retrospective chart review of 4 multidrug-resistant pediatric patients on DRV/r- and/or RAL-based regimens. Viral load, CD4 count, adherence by pill count, and World Health Organization (WHO) clinical stage prior to and after switch to DRV/r- and/or RAL-based regimen were assessed...

PURPOSE: Case reports and other published or manufacturer-provided data on the administration of antiretroviral agents through enteral feeding tubes are reviewed. SUMMARY: There is very limited published evidence to guide clinicians in the delivery of therapies for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection by feeding tubes, especially crushed tablets and capsule contents. A search of the primary literature (through February 2012) identified a total of nine articles describing the delivery of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) agents via gastrostomy (G), jejunostomy, and other feeding tubes; correspondence with pharmaceutical manufacturers yielded additional information...
