Question About HAART Quad Therapy

Jul 10, 2012

After consultation with a specialist, the following specific HARRT regime was drawn up:

Abacavir 600mg once daily Lamivudine 300mg once daily Lopinavir 400mg twice daily Ritonavir 100mg twice daily

What three types of patients is this treatment regime designed for?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

I'm not sure about three types of patients, but a regimen of two NRTIs (abacavir and lamivudine) and a ritonavir-boosted protease inhibitor (lopinavir, aka, Kaletra) could be used for first-line patients or for patients with prior treatment experience (either for switching treatment or drug resistance).

If your not sure why your HIV provider has selected this regimen, it's worth a conversation.
