Possible combo??
Apr 28, 2002

Dear providers:

If anyone ear a clinical trial related on Fortovase and Norvir together (ex:Kaletra)?? and how clinical results are obtained??

Response from Dr. Aberg

Fortavase is the soft gel formulation of saquinavir. Previously saquinavir had a different formulation in a hard shell and is called invirase. There have been many studies evaluating the combination of saquinavir with norvir (ritonavir). There are studies currently in progress evaulating a once daily dose of saquinavir with ritonavir. I do not know if Abbott and Roche are developing a combined pill such as Kaletra (lopinavir/ritonavir). I have not heard of that. I would recommend that you visit the Roche Pharmaceutical web page where you can get additional information regarding the clinical trials as well as contact them for further information web page
