Intelence Now for Kids Ages 6 and Older

May/June 2012

The HIV drug Intelence (etravirine) received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use by children ages six to 18 weighing at least 35 pounds, who have previous anti-HIV treatment experience. This includes children whose virus has developed drug resistance to the same class of medications as Intelence (non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, or NNRTIs). Sustiva and Viramune are the NNRTIs previously available for pediatric use. A new scored 25 mg tablet of Intelence is now available for pediatrics.

For more information about the drug, go to www.positivelyaware.com/intelence.
