What's New in the U.S. HHS Antiretroviral Therapy Guidelines for Adults and Adolescents

November 13, 2014

This interim revision of the Guidelines includes a revised section on Hepatitis C Virus (HCV)/HIV Coinfection, with emphasis on considerations for use of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs in patients who also receive treatment for HCV infection. A new table (Table 12) provides clinicians with guidance on the concomitant use of HCV drugs and ARV drugs, with a focus on potential pharmacokinetic drug interactions. The Panel refers clinicians to www.hcvguidelines.org for guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of HCV infections.
