Description

Sustiva is used to treat HIV infection in combination with other anti-HIV medications. If Sustiva is the only drug you take to treat HIV infection, it may stop working.

Sustiva is an oral medication that is used for the treatment of infections with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It is similar to nevirapine (Viramune) and delavirdine (Rescriptor).

Sustiva is also known as Efavirenz, Stocrin.

Sustiva is in a class of drugs called reverse transcriptase inhibitors which also includes zalcitabine (Hivid), zidovudine (Retrovir), didanosine (Videx), and lamivudine (Epivir). During infection with HIV, the HIV virus multiplies within the body's cells. The newly-formed viruses then are released from the cells and spread throughout the body where they infect other cells. In this manner, the infection continually spreads to new, uninfected cells that the body is continually producing, and HIV infection is perpetuated. When producing new viruses, the HIV virus must manufacture new DNA for each virus. Reverse transcriptase is the enzyme that the virus uses to form this new DNA. Sustiva directly inhibits the activity of reverse transcriptase and blocks the production of DNA and new viruses. Unlike zidovudine, efavirenz does not need to be converted to an active form. Sustiva does not kill existing HIV virus and it is not a cure for HIV.

Dosage

Take this drug by mouth, generally once daily as directed. Take on an empty stomach with a glass of water. Taking Sustiva with food, especially a high-fat meal can lead to increased blood levels of the drug and increase your risk of having side effects.

Best taken at bedtime during the first month of use. Using this drug regularly at bedtime may decrease certain side effects. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. Do not take more or less of this drug than prescribed, or stop taking it unless directed to do so by your doctor. Read the patient information leaflet provided by your pharmacist.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Sustiva suddenly.

Overdose

If you overdose Sustiva and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.

Storage

Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Low-level drug resistance is not detected by routine consensus sequence genotype analysis (CSA) but low levels of specific mutations, such as the non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI)-resistant mutation K103N, can be quantitated by allele-specific PCR (ASP). This study has applied an ASP to quantitate low-level K103N in patients presenting for clinical HIV genotyping and assess the correlation with antiretroviral treatment history and outcomes. HIV RNA was extracted from patient plasma and subjected to PCR amplification of the reverse transcriptase (RT) region followed by genotyping by CSA and real-time ASP for K103N. When applied to samples from patients presenting for genotyping, the ASP detects K103N, not K103 nor K103R, but cross-reacts with K103S. ASP identified all samples that were K103N by CSA (10.5%) and an additional 14% by ASP only, representing patients who were therapy naïve and with NNRTI treatment history. ASP detected therapy-acquired K103N at low levels up to 6 years after cessation of NNRTI therapy. In three patients with new HIV diagnosis and K103N detected by ASP only, K103N virus declined rapidly from the circulation but persisted in PBMC DNA at >12 months post-diagnosis. Efavirenz (EFV) combination therapy in three patients with low-level K103N suppressed successfully viral load, although one patient developed failure and CSA-detectable K103N after 15 months of therapy. Thus, analysis of K103N by ASP in conjunction with CSA genotyping provides additional information that reflects K103N transmission and persistence but detection of low-level K103N does not preclude successful EFV-containing combination therapy.

At week 96, trial completion rates were 80.2% (316/394; RPV/FTC/TDF) and 74.0% (290/392; EFV/FTC/TDF). Overall, RPV/FTC/TDF was noninferior to EFV/FTC/TDF [HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/ml: 77.9 vs. 72.4%, respectively; difference -5.5; 95%CI (-0.6, 11.5); P = 0.076]. RPV/FTC/TDF was significantly more efficacious compared with EFV/FTC/TDF in participants with baseline HIV-1 RNA equal to or less than 100 000 copies/ml (78.8 vs. 71.2%; P = 0.046) and in those with CD4 cell count greater than 200 cells/μl (80.6 vs. 73.0%; P = 0.018). There was no significant between-group difference in the CD4 cell count increase (278 ± 189 vs. 259 ± 191 cells/μl; P = 0.17). Few participants developed resistance after week 48 (1.0% RPV/FTC/TDF; 0.3% EFV/FTC/TDF). Compared with EFV/FTC/TDF, RPV/FTC/TDF was associated with fewer adverse event-related discontinuations (3.0 vs. 11.0%; P<0.001), significantly fewer adverse events due to central nervous system issues and rash, greater improvements in patient-reported symptoms, and significant improvements in the SF-12v2 quality of life questionnaire mental health composite score (P = 0.014).

Efavirenz and nevirapine significantly decreased the terminal exposure to lumefantrine (decrease of 69.9% and 25.2%, respectively) while lopinavir/ritonavir substantially increased the exposure (increase of 439%). All antiretroviral drugs decreased the total exposure to dihydroartemisinin (decrease of 71.7%, 41.3% and 59.7% for efavirenz, nevirapine and ritonavir/lopinavir, respectively). Simulations suggest that a substantially increased artemether-lumefantrine dose is required to achieve equivalent exposures when co-administered with efavirenz (250% increase) and nevirapine (75% increase). When co-administered with lopinavir/ritonavir it is unclear if the increased lumefantrine exposure compensates adequately for the reduced dihydroartemisinin exposure and thus whether dose adjustment is required.

212 patients (77.4% males) of mean age 45.8 years were enrolled; 202 completed the study. One month post switch to FDR the adherence rate increased significantly to 96.1% from a baseline value of 93.8% (P < 0.01). The increase was steadily maintained throughout the study (96.2% at 6 months). QoL improved over time from 68.8% to 72.7% (P = 0.042) as well, and was significantly associated with the perception of health status, presence of adverse events (AEs) and number of reported AEs (P < 0.0001). QoL significantly influenced adherence (P < 0.0001). During FDR use the mean CD4 count increased from 556 to 605 cells/muL (P < 0.0001). At the end of follow-up 98% of patients maintained HIV-RNA level < 50 copies/mL and 100% <400 copies/mL. Four patients stopped therapy because they were lost to follow-up and 6 because of AEs (insomnia/nervousness 4, allergy 1, difficulties swallowing pills 1).

Management of tuberculosis (TB)-HIV co-infection is complicated by interactions between the diseases and their therapies. We developed and evaluated a strategy to (i) treat co-infected patients in a single co-infection clinic, (ii) maximize use of first-line drugs, (iii) delay antiretroviral therapy (ART) until two months post-TB treatment except in severe immunosuppression, (iv) commence efavirenz at 600 mg daily with therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) and (v) target treatment completion. We conducted a prospective cohort review over 5.5 years in a UK tertiary referral center where 56 HIV-positive patients treated for TB were followed-up for a median 30 months. Main outcome measures were treatment completion, adverse events, immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome, immunological and virological parameters, and TDM for efavirenz. Treatment completion rates were 88% (49/56); four patients were lost to local follow-up and three (5.4%) died during treatment; no deaths were TB-related. Adverse events were common (55%), but caused no treatment interruptions. Standard doses (600 mg daily) of efavirenz with rifampicin achieved or exceeded therapeutic levels in 25/28 (89%). This study supports combined management for TB-HIV co-infected patients. Delaying ART to two months post-TB treatment did not seem to result in poor clinical outcomes in this well-resourced context. Although efavirenz 600 mg daily usually achieved satisfactory levels, TDM is recommended.

Dupont Pharmaceutical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of efavirenz with AZT and 3TC in treatment-naive patients. When compared to a protease inhibitor regimen, 95 percent of the patients taking the efavirenz combination achieved a viral load of less than 400 copies/ml at 24 weeks. Abacavir is also attracting attention due to its potency and dosing convenience. Abacavir has contributed to lower viral loads in treatment naive patients when combined with ZDV and 3TC. Both efavirenz and abacavir should be available in the Fall.

Of 712 individuals with failure of first-line tenofovir-containing regimens, 115 (16%) had at least one TAM. In crude comparisons, patients with TAMs had lower CD4 counts at treatment initiation than did patients without TAMs (60·5 cells per μL [IQR 21·0-128·0] in patients with TAMS vs 95·0 cells per μL [37·0-177·0] in patients without TAMs; p=0·007) and were more likely to have tenofovir resistance (93 [81%] of 115 patients with TAMs vs 352 [59%] of 597 patients without TAMs; p<0·0001), NNRTI resistance (107 [93%] vs 462 [77%]; p<0·0001), and cytosine analogue resistance (100 [87%] vs 378 [63%]; p=0·0002). We detected associations between TAMs and drug resistance mutations both between and within studies; the correlation between the study-level proportion of patients with tenofovir resistance and TAMs was 0·64 (p<0·0001), and the odds ratio for tenofovir resistance comparing patients with and without TAMs was 1·29 (1·13-1·47; p<0·0001) INTERPRETATION: TAMs are common in patients who have failure of first-line tenofovir-containing regimens in sub-Saharan Africa, and are associated with multidrug resistant HIV-1. Effective viral load monitoring and point-of-care resistance tests could help to mitigate the emergence and spread of such strains.

Only one trial has shown beneficial effects and safety of TDF+ FTC + EFV as first-line treatment for patients with HIV. The effects and safety of TDF + FTC + EFV as first-line treatment for patients with HIV cannot be assessed on the basis of only one trial. Further studies evaluating the effects and safety of TDF + FTC + EFV as first-line treatment for patients with HIV are needed.

We explored the mean differences in routinely measured lipids (total cholesterol, triglycerides, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol) according to exposure to different combination antiretroviral regimens in Asian (n = 2051) and Australian (predominantly Caucasian, n = 794) cohorts. The regimen was defined as at least 3 antiretroviral drugs with at least 2 nucleoside-reverse transcriptases (NRTIs) and either of at least one protease inhibitor (PI) or non-nucleoside-reverse transcriptases (NNRTIs). We categorised cART regimens as: NRTIs as tenofovir based or not; NNRTIs as nevirapine or efavirenz (but not both); and PI as atazanavir based or not. We found that the impact of various antiretroviral regimens on lipids in Asian and Australian cohorts was only different by cohort for total cholesterol (P for interaction between regimen and cohort: <0.001) but not in case of other lipids (P for interaction: >0.05). The differences in total cholesterol were however small and unlikely to be of clinical significance. Overall, tenofovir with nevirapine or atazanavir was associated with the most favorable lipids, while the PI regimens without tenofovir and atazanavir were associated with least favorable lipids. We conclude that the impact of various ART regimens on lipids is largely similar in Asian and Australian cohorts and that the newer drugs such as tenofovir and atazanavir are likely to provide similar benefit in terms of lipid profiles in both populations.

TDF/ddI/EFV as initial therapy appears to have diminished efficacy in subjects with CD4 < 200 x 10 cells/l and viral load > 100,000 copies/ml. Treatment failure with resistance was not attributable to baseline resistance, efavirenz exposure or poor adherence.

At enrolment, participants had a mean age of 31 years; CD4+ cell counts were similar between the control, NVP and EFV groups (758, 645 and 568 cells/mm(3), respectively; p=0.09); all women in the NVP and EFV groups had an undetectable HIV-RNA. Women in the control group had a higher baseline body weight (73 kg) compared to those in the NVP (63 kg; p=0.03) or EFV groups (60 kg; p<0.01). By linear regression, weight was a significant predictor of LNG concentrations (1 kg increase in weight=5 pg/mL decrease in LNG, p=0.03). LNG concentrations are reported in the table.

We present the first case report in the UK of acute liver failure caused by efavirenz therapy culminating in liver transplantation. A 26-year-old Zimbabwean woman commenced emtricitabine, tenofovir and efavirenz (Atripla) in December 2011. Her liver function tests at baseline and at 20 days after initiating antiretroviral therapy were normal. At three months of therapy her blood tests haemolysed and were not processed. She had previously missed follow-up appointments and on this occasion failed to return for repeat tests. She was not seen again until after six months of antiretroviral therapy when she presented to her general practitioner with acute liver failure. Her condition deteriorated and she required liver transplantation. She recovered well and re-started antiretroviral therapy to good effect. The case illustrates the value of routine monitoring after initiating antiretroviral therapy and the fundamental importance of engaging patients in long-term management to ensure safe treatment.

The neurologic events related to antiretroviral therapy (ART) in HIV-infected ART-naive patients are relatively common. Side effects of ART and complications of HIV infection may overlap significantly. Establishing etiology of neurologic (neuropathy and neuropathic pain, changes in cognition, dementia, and myelopathy) and psychiatric (neurocognitive disorders, depression, anxiety, substance abuse and dependence, and others) complications can present a significant challenge. It has long been documented that neurologic and psychological side effects can occur with many of the agents used to treat HIV infection. Particularly, efavirenz from the non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) has been associated with neurologic and psychological complaints that may be difficult to differentiate from pre-existing mental illness, substance abuse, and HIV-related neuropsychiatric symptoms. Peripheral neuropathy (PN) of at least 6 different types is a well-known adverse effect of treatment with nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) in HIV-infected patients. Lack of dealing with early stages of neurologic and psychological side effects of HIV infection and Highly Active Anti-retroviral Therapy (HAART) are observed in daily practice. The purpose of this article is to identify the neurologic, neuropsychiatric and psychiatric complications related to HIV and anti-retroviral therapy, to discuss current knowledge about these disorders, and to suggest strategies for their diagnosis and management.

We identified treatment-naive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1)-infected individuals who had commenced HAART since 1996 and who had a starting CD4 count of <200 cells/mm(3). Immunological success was defined as achieving a CD4 count of >200 cells/mm(3) and treatments were compared using univariate and multivariate Cox's proportional hazards models in order to establish whether protease inhibitor (PI)-based regimens were significantly different to regimens based on non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs). Both regimens utilize a nucleoside analogue (NA) backbone.

The studies reviewed demonstrate that dose reduction of antiretroviral therapy provides adequate plasma concentrations and effective immunological and virological responses in, mainly, a Thai population compared with whites. The differences in these pharmacokinetic parameters could possibly be due to differences in body weight and composition, drug-food interactions, metabolism, environmental factors and genetic background. Moreover, dose reduction can possibly decrease toxicity and save costs for patients in low- and middle-income countries.

Background.  The mechanism of virologic failure (VF) of lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) monotherapy is not well understood. We assessed sequence changes in human immunodeficiency virus-1 reverse-transcriptase (RT) and protease (PR) regions. Methods.  Human immunodeficiency virus-1 pol sequences from 34 participants who failed second-line LPV/r monotherapy were obtained at study entry (SE) and VF. Sequence changes were evaluated using phylogenetic analysis and hamming distance. Results.  Human immunodeficiency virus-1 sequence change was higher over drug resistance mutation (DRM) sites (median genetic distance, 2.2%; Q1 to Q3, 2.1%-2.5%) from SE to VF compared with non-DRM sites (median genetic distance, 1.3%; Q1 to Q3, 1.0%-1.4%; P < .0001). Evolution over DRM sites was mainly driven by changes in the RT (median genetic distance, 2.7%; Q1 to Q3, 2.2%-3.2%) compared with PR (median genetic distance, 1.1%; Q1 to Q3, 0.0%-1.1%; P < .0001). Most RT buy sustiva DRMs present at SE were lost at VF. At VF, 19 (56%) and 26 (76%) were susceptible to efavirenz/nevirapine and etravirine (ETV)/rilpivirine (RPV), respectively, compared with 1 (3%) and 12 (35%) at SE. Participants who retained nonnucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) DRMs and those without evolution of LPV/r DRMs had significantly shorter time to VF. Conclusions.  The selection of LPV/r DRMs in participants with longer time to VF suggests better adherence and more selective pressure. Fading NNRTI mutations and an increase in genotypic susceptibility to ETV and RPV could allow for the reuse of NNRTI. Further studies are warranted to understand mechanisms of PR failure.

The efavirenz, a non nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor of HIV-1, presents a marked pharmacokinetics variability related to an intense hepatic metabolism. Efavirenz is also a potent inducer. Central nervous system (CNS) toxicity associated with efavirenz therapy is a major cause of non adherence and therefore treatment failure. The literature has been analyzed to evaluate the level of evidence of the interest buy sustiva of a therapeutic drug monitoring for efavirenz. Several studies have reported that an efavirenz plasma concentration > 1000 ng/mL is a predictive factor of the viral response. Efavirenz plasma concentrations > 4000 ng/mL were associated to an increase frequency of CNS side effects. CNS toxicity was also more frequent in patients carrying the 516G > T mutation (CYP2B6*6 allele), associated with a significantly greater efavirenz plasma exposure. Non-randomized studies have reported the interest of efavirenz therapeutic drug monitoring to optimize viral response and prevent CNS toxicity, allowing to suggest a level of evidence "recommended" for efavirenz.

Poloxamines (X-shaped poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(propylene oxide) (PEO-PPO) diblocks connected to a central ethylenediamine group) were N-methylated and N-allylated with the aim of widening their versatility as drug nanocarriers. The self-aggregation properties of various derivatives, covering a wide range of molecular weights and EO/PO ratios, were thoroughly investigated. The cytocompatibility of different modified poloxamines was compared to that of the pristine counterparts by MTT and LDH assays. The most hydrophilic varieties were highly cytocompatible even at concentrations of 5%. Toward the optimization of the oral pharmacotherapy of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection in pediatric patients, the encapsulation and in vitro delivery of efavirenz (EFV), a lipophilic first-line antiretroviral drug, were evaluated. Pristine and N-alkylated poloxamines behaved as highly efficient EFV solubilizers enhancing the aqueous solubility of the drug between 166 and 7426-times. EFV promotes self-micellization of poloxamines; their tiny structural modification (i.e., just one methyl- or allyl-group) being able to regulate drug/micellar core interaction. Despite the physical stability of the micelles against dilution in physiological mimicking fluids, the N-alkylated derivatives Casodex Online Pharmacy were slightly more prone to disassembly promoting EFV release from the micellar reservoir. For all the derivatives evaluated, the in vitro release fitted zero-order kinetics and was sustained for at least 24 h. These findings point out N-alkylated poloxamines as promising nanocarriers for oral or parenteral drug delivery.

The objective of this study was to estimate the cumulative incidences of failure by months 12 (M12) and 24 (M24) for the most prescribed first-line anti-retroviral regimens (ART). It is retrospective analysis of a prospectively collected database. All patients who initiated their first ART with the most prescribed regimens between 1st January 2004 and 30th June 2013 in 12 large HIV reference centers in France were included. The outcome was treatment failure--defined by any treatment modification for virological or tolerability reasons--and comparisons between regimens were carried out Plavix Medicine at M12 and M24. Adjusted and weighted methods via the propensity score (PS) were used to compare the effectiveness of the first antiretroviral regimens. Potential confounders of the treatment-outcome association were used to estimate PS with multinomial logistic regression. Overall, 3128 and 2690 patients were included in the M12 and M24 analyses, respectively. Patients received 5 different regimens (ABC/3TC with ATV/r or DRV/r, TDF/FTC with ATV/r, DRV/r, or EFV). Failure was reported in 25% and 42% at M12 and M24, respectively. Patients who received TDF/FTC/EFV had a significantly higher proportion of failure at M12 by comparison with TDF/FTC with DRV/r (reference), but not at M24. Patients in the 3 other groups had a trend toward a higher proportion of failure at M12 although not statistically significant. No difference was found at M24. Using data from a large prospective cohort, we found that boosted atazanavir and darunavir had comparable effectiveness, whatever the associated NRTIs, whereas efavirenz-based regimens were relatively less performing on the short term.

Multinational clinical trials commonly include different Mobic Suspension language versions of patient-reported outcomes (PRO) instruments without considering the question of their cross-cultural validity. The inclusion of a PRO instrument, the Adult AIDS Clinical Trial Group Symptom Distress Module (SDM), in an multinational clinical trial in HIV-1 antiretroviral-naive patients offered an opportunity to explore the methods to assess cross-cultural validity of PRO instruments in the context of clinical trials.

Case I A 49-year old male, HIV-1 positive, on co-formulated tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/lamivudine/efavirenz since 2009 and CD4 counts of 205 cells/μL (13 %). He presented with lower back pain and progressive lower limb weakness for two weeks prior to admission. The physical examination revealed bilateral flaccid paraplegia with reduced reflexes, but otherwise unremarkable findings. A lateral lumbar X-ray showed noticeable reduction of intervertebral space between L4 and L5, and a small calcification in the anterior longitudinal ligament between L4 and L5, being compatible with focal spondylosis deformans but inconclusive with regard to tuberculous spondylitis. An abdominal ultrasound showed normal kidneys, bladder and prostate gland. The urinalysis and complete blood counts (CBC) were normal. M. Tuberculosis was detected through GeneXpert MTB/RIF in centrifuged urine, with no resistance to rifampicin. Case II A 76-year old female, HIV-1 negative, presented with lower back pain and progressive weakness and numbness of the lower limbs for two months prior to admission. The physical examination revealed paraplegia, but otherwise unremarkable findings. The lumbosacral X-ray findings Prilosec Dogs Overdose were compatible with spondylosis deformans of the lumbar spine and possible tuberculous spondylitis in L3-L4. The abdominal and renal ultrasound showed normal kidneys and bladder. The urinalysis and CBC were normal. M. Tuberculosis was detected through GeneXpert MTB/RIF in centrifuged urine, with no resistance to rifampicin.

Non-inferiority of VL suppression in young people on EFV-based first-line ART with a VL of < 50 copies/ml was demonstrated for SCT compared with CT, with similar resistance, safety and inflammatory marker profiles. The SCT group had fewer ART-related adverse events. Further evaluation of the immunological and virological impact of SCT is ongoing. A limitation of the trial is that the results cannot be generalised to settings where VL monitoring is either not available or infrequent, nor to use of low-dose EFV. Two-year extended follow-up of the trial is ongoing to confirm the durability of the SCT strategy. Further trials of SCT in settings with infrequent VL monitoring and with other antiretroviral drugs such as tenofovir alafenamide, which has a long intracellular half-life, and/or dolutegravir, which has a higher barrier to resistance, are planned.

Thirty-five patients were enrolled (6-8 patients per treatment group) and completed 10 days of therapy; the mean baseline log10 HIV RNA level ranged from 4.5 to 5.0 copies/mL in each group. On day 10, the mean decrease from baseline in the log10 HIV RNA level was -0.2 copies/mL for the placebo group and -1.9, -2.0, -1.7 and -2.2 log10 copies/mL for the MK-0518 100-, 200-, 400-, and 600-mg treatment groups, respectively. All dose groups had superior antiretroviral activity compared with placebo (P < 0.001 for comparison of each dose with placebo). At least 50% of patients in each MK-0518 dose group achieved an HIV RNA level <400 copies/mL by day 10. Mean trough MK-0518 concentrations at each dose exceeded the IC95 of 33 nM. Study therapy was generally well tolerated. The most common adverse experiences were headache and dizziness; these were similar between active and control groups. There were no discontinuations because of adverse experiences and no serious adverse experiences.

The approved dose of tenofovir disproxil fumarate, 300 mg once daily, was established in clinical trials in combination with efavirenz, which does not significantly affect tenofovir concentrations. Combining tenofovir with lopinavir/r, darunavir/r or atazanavir/r increases tenofovir concentrations, which could raise the risk of renal adverse events. Newly approved tenofovir tablets are available at lower strength (200 or 250 mg) for use in paediatrics.
