What is Videx EC??
| Response from Dr. Henry
Videx EC is a new formulation of an old drug (ddI). DDI has been a workhorse NRTI class drug that has demonstrated efficacy been has been difficult for many patients to take/tolerate (due to the antacid buffer required to maximize absorption). The new formulation- a capsule- is much better tolerated and is taken only once a day--very simple. Videx EC is breathing renewed life into a good drug. KH
