Updates to the Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in Adults and Adolescents with HIV
The Panel on Antiretroviral Guidelines for Adults and Adolescents (the Panel) updated the Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in Adults and Adolescents with HIV. Highlights from the updated sections are summarized below.
Lenacapavir, a first-in-class HIV capsid inhibitor, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in December 2022 to be used in combination with other antiretroviral (ARV) drugs for the treatment of heavily treatment-experienced adults with multidrug-resistant HIV-1 infection. In this update to the guidelines, the following sections are revised to incorporate information regarding the use of lenacapavir:
- Drug-Resistance Testing
- Virologic Failure
- Hepatitis C Virus/HIV Coinfection
- Adverse Effects of Antiretroviral Agents
- Cost Considerations and Antiretroviral Therapy
- Drug–Drug Interactions
- Appendix B, Table 11. Characteristics of the Capsid Inhibitor—a new table on the characteristics of lenacapavir
The Financial Disclosure has been updated to include the Panel members’ financial disclosure for companies related to HIV treatment or diagnostics for the period of March 1, 2022, to February 28, 2023.
