Kaletra monotherapy

Jul 5, 2006

In what instances is the use of Kaletra as the only medicine used?

Response from Dr. Pierone

Kaletra monotherapy is primarily an investigational strategy. But some patients on are Kaletra monotherapy because of resistance or intolerance (or both) to other classes of antiretroviral agents. I have rarely used Kaletra monotherapy in a situation where a patient lacks insurance coverage, does not qualify for assistance, and is looking for a more affordable option. In the U.S. a year's supply Kaletra can be purchased for about $8,500 versus $12,000 to $16,000 for a traditional triple drug cocktail.
