Truvada & Isentress
Apr 17, 2011
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your post.
Unfortunately, once-daily raltegravir (ISENTRESS) was found in the QDMRK study to not be as effective as twice-daily-- for this reason, the Truvada+Isentress regimen won't be once-daily.
There are other once-daily integrase inhibitors (namely elvitegravir and dolutegravir) that are in development. If these programs successfully conclude with regulatory agency approval, then we could see an entirely once-daily integrase-containing regimen.
Hope this helps, BY
