new 4 in1 pill in trail for hiv
May 20, 2009

Hi Dr Keith,

my doctor wants me to start with the new 4 in 1 pill,

can you please let me know all about it,

do you take it once a day ??? before or after food ???

thank you so much, and l hope we can cure hiv in the next 10 years....

Response from Dr. Henry

You need to be more specific about which med you are referring to. The only Quad (4 in 1) pill that I am aware of involves the Gilead integrase inihibitor (elvetegravir) + their non-ritonavir booster and tenofovir + FTC. Early results with that investigational med are promising and studies comparing it to standard drugs are underway and/or planned. KH
