What Major HIV Research Developments Does 2014 Hold in Store?

April 4, 2014


Richard Elion

Simpler Regimens and Less Frequent Doses

"I think there's an interesting paradigm developing in HIV, whether we're going to see the further development and refinement of single-tablet regimens that are once-daily, with great tolerability. The cobicistat-assisted darunavir, the elvitegravir-cobicistat have already been great and the coming of dolutegravir and abacavir/3TC are all very exciting options.

"At the same time, there's an emerging second stream of agents that might be given once a month, or agents that might be given once every two months. So the issue about what will be better for keeping people who are in care, and keeping people engaged -- whether it's less frequent dosing regimens or simple, easy, well-tolerated once daily -- that's something that I'm looking forward to seeing data about."

-- Richard Elion, Director of Clinical Research, Whitman Walker Health.
