Description

Sustiva is used to treat HIV infection in combination with other anti-HIV medications. If Sustiva is the only drug you take to treat HIV infection, it may stop working.

Sustiva is an oral medication that is used for the treatment of infections with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It is similar to nevirapine (Viramune) and delavirdine (Rescriptor).

Sustiva is also known as Efavirenz, Stocrin.

Sustiva is in a class of drugs called reverse transcriptase inhibitors which also includes zalcitabine (Hivid), zidovudine (Retrovir), didanosine (Videx), and lamivudine (Epivir). During infection with HIV, the HIV virus multiplies within the body's cells. The newly-formed viruses then are released from the cells and spread throughout the body where they infect other cells. In this manner, the infection continually spreads to new, uninfected cells that the body is continually producing, and HIV infection is perpetuated. When producing new viruses, the HIV virus must manufacture new DNA for each virus. Reverse transcriptase is the enzyme that the virus uses to form this new DNA. Sustiva directly inhibits the activity of reverse transcriptase and blocks the production of DNA and new viruses. Unlike zidovudine, efavirenz does not need to be converted to an active form. Sustiva does not kill existing HIV virus and it is not a cure for HIV.

Dosage

Take this drug by mouth, generally once daily as directed. Take on an empty stomach with a glass of water. Taking Sustiva with food, especially a high-fat meal can lead to increased blood levels of the drug and increase your risk of having side effects.

Best taken at bedtime during the first month of use. Using this drug regularly at bedtime may decrease certain side effects. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. Do not take more or less of this drug than prescribed, or stop taking it unless directed to do so by your doctor. Read the patient information leaflet provided by your pharmacist.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Sustiva suddenly.

Overdose

If you overdose Sustiva and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.

Storage

Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Among patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections psychiatric disease poses a particular challenge for caregivers. Neuropsychiatric side effects of efavirenz have been described in up to 40% of patients showing dizziness, insomnia, unusual dreams, mood instability, personality alterations and thought disorders. In immigrants from Africa and South America these side effects may be related to elevated plasma concentrations of efavirenz due to polymorphisms of cytochrome P450 isozymes (especially G516T). Alleles for these polymorphisms are more frequent in African and South American patients. We report a case of a 52-year-old patient from Guinea who was referred to the department of neurology under the diagnosis of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND). Since the start of combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) including efavirenz the patient had suffered severe personality alterations, acoustic and visual hallucinations and delusions which led to discrimination and reduced quality of life. Diagnostic procedures including magnetic resonance imaging (MRT) and spinal fluid analysis resulted in normal values and did not explain the disease. After switching to nevirapin instead of efavirenz the psychotic symptoms disappeared within 5 days.

sustiva drug interactions

Using biological cut-offs to define resistance, assigned NRTI and randomized drug regimens, continuous and dichotomous phenotypic susceptibility scores (PSS) were calculated for each virus. Efavirenz hypersusceptibility as a dichotomous value was defined as less than 0.4-fold resistance. Associations between virological failure and continuous and dichotomous PSS were evaluated using Kaplan-Meier curves and Cox proportional hazards regression models.

sustiva dosage form

Hypersusceptibility to nevirapine and efavirenz was detected using each of the methods described above. R values correlating the other methods with single-cycle assay values were between 0.66 and 0.96. In addition to the high correlations, the different methods gave similar numeric results.

Three recent studies have examined switching people with lipodystrophy from a protease inhibitor to an NNRTI-type drug. Two studies switched patients to Viramune (Nevirapine) and found fat levels in the blood had dropped and the appearance of wasting had improved. In a third study that switched patients from Crixivan to Sustiva, general improvements in tissue loss and belly size were observed, but cholesterol and triglyceride levels became higher than normal. This may make Viramune the drug of choice for people with lipodystrophy and high cholesterol levels. Contact information is provided.

The introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) as standard of care has changed the natural history of HIV infection into a manageable chronic disease requiring long-term antiretroviral (ARV) treatment. However, response to HAART is often limited by the occurrence of toxicity or by the emergence of drug resistance. Antiretroviral treatment is characterized by differing rates of adverse events and responses. Genetic variations between human beings account for a relevant proportion of this variability. A relevant number of associations between human genetic variants and predisposition to adverse events have been described and for some antiretroviral drugs a clear and casual genotype-phenotype correlation has already been established. The strong association between abacavir hypersensitivity reaction and HLA-B*5701 has been demonstrated in both observational and blinded randomized clinical trials in racially diverse populations and represents the best example of the clinical utility of pharmacogenetic screening in HIV medicine. Genotyping for HLA-B*5701 before prescribing an abacavir containing regimen has been introduced into routine clinical practice as the standard of care for all patients. Other well-established associations include CYP2B6 alleles and efavirenz central nervous system side effects, UGT1A1 alleles and atazanavir-associated hyperbilirubinemia and HLA class II allele HLA-DRB*0101 and nevirapine-associated hypersensitivity. Despite genetic associations having been described for peripheral neuropathy, lipodystrophy, hyperlipidaemia, pancreatitis and renal proximal tubulopathy, numerous barriers exist to the successful introduction of widespread genetic testing to the clinic. Future prospects point in the direction of individualization of antiretroviral therapy through insights from host genetics. The present paper is aimed to provide a comprehensive review of the published literature and to summarize the state of research in this area. This article forms part of a special issue of Antiviral Research marking the 25th anniversary of antiretroviral drug discovery and development, Vol 85, issue 1, 2010.

Cytochrome P450 CYP2B6 is a highly polymorphic enzyme that metabolizes numerous drugs, pesticides, and environmental toxins. Sequence analysis of a Rwandese population identified eight functionally uncharacterized nonsynonymous variants c.329G>T (p.G110V), c.341T>C (p.I114T), c.444G>T (p.E148D), c.548T>G (p.V183G), c.637T>C (p.F213L), c.758G>A (p.R253H), c.835G>C (p.A279P), and c.1459C>A (p.R487S), and five novel alleles termed CYP2B6*33 to CYP2B6*37 were assigned. Recombinant expression in COS-1 cells and functional characterization using the antidepressant bupropion and the antiretroviral efavirenz (EFV) as substrates demonstrated complete or almost complete loss-of-function for variants p.G110V, p.I114T, p.V183G, and p.F213L, whereas p.E148D, p.R253H, p.A279P, and p.R487S variants were functional. The data were used to assess the predictive power of eight online available functional prediction programs for amino-acid changes. Although none of the programs correctly predicted the functionality of all variants, substrate docking simulation analyses indicated similar conformational changes by all four deleterious mutations within the enzyme's active site, thus explaining lack of enzymatic function for both substrates. Because low-activity alleles of CYP2B6 are associated with impaired EFV metabolism and adverse drug response, these results are of potential utility for personalized treatment strategies in HIV/AIDS therapy.

Buprenorphine metabolism was recently expanded by in vitro identification of a number of hydroxylated metabolites. The identification of two, M1 and M3, in urine suggests that they may be quantitatively significant metabolites. To further understand the in vivo regulation of this mode of metabolism, we evaluated 24-hr urine from subjects (10 per treatment group) on buprenorphine alone or with the antiretroviral agents: efavirenz, delavirdine, nelfinavir, ritonavir, and lopinavir/ritonavir. Quantitative analysis for buprenorphine and traditional metabolites and semi-quantitative analysis of M1 and M3 in urine were performed by liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry. The renal clearance of buprenorphine and traditional metabolites were similar for all treatments except for lopinavir/ritonavir, suggesting that urine amounts of M1 and M3 would adequately reflect systemic changes (except lopinavir/ritonavir). Efavirenz decreased M1 and increased M3 consistent with its ability to induce cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A. Delavirdine increased M1 and decreased M3 consistent with its ability to inhibit CYP3A. Both nelfinavir and ritonavir decreased both M1 and M3, consistent with their ability to inhibit CYP3A and 2C8. These results provide further information on the in vivo response of novel secondary metabolites of buprenorphine to metabolic inhibitors and inducers.

A total of 197 patients (76% women, median CD4 count 395/mm(3)) started therapy with TDF/FTC, 126 with EFV and 71 with ZDV. During the first six months of ART, 94 patients had digestive AEs (nausea/vomiting) of any grade (EFV 36/126, 29%; ZDV 58/71, 82%, p<0.0001), including 20 sAEs (EFV 3/126, 5%; ZDV 17/71, 24%, p<0.0001). In-patients on TDF/FTC+ZDV with digestive AEs, the median time to the first symptom was two days (IQR: 1-4). Plasma ZDV (Cmax) distributions and pill ZDV dosages were normal. Patients with digestive AEs had higher haemoglobin levels and tended to have higher body mass indices and more frequent past histories of cotrimoxazole (CTX) prophylaxis.

An adaptation of the HPLC method previously described for the simultaneous assay of amprenavir, ritonavir, indinavir, saquinavir, nelfinavir and efavirenz after solid-phase extraction is proposed here for the separate analysis of the newer PI lopinavir (LPV) and the NNRTI nevirapine (NVP). After viral inactivation by heat (60 degrees C for 60 min), plasma (600 microl), with clozapine added as internal standard, is diluted 1+1 with phosphate buffer pH 7 and subjected to a solid-phase extraction on a C(18) cartridge. Matrix components are eliminated with 2 x 500 microl of a solution of 0.1% H(3)PO(4) neutralised with NaOH to pH 7. LPV and NVP are eluted with 3 x 500 microl MeOH. The resulting eluate is evaporated under nitrogen at room temperature and is reconstituted in 100 microl MeOH 50%. A 40-microl volume is injected onto a Nucleosil 100, 5 microm C(18) AB column. LPV and NVP are analysed separately using a gradient elution program with solvents constituted of MeCN and phosphate buffer adjusted to pH 5.07 and containing 0.02% sodium heptanesulfonate. LPV and NVP are detected by UV at 201 and 282 nm, respectively. The calibration curves are linear up to 10 microg/ml. The mean absolute recovery of LPV and NVP is 91% and 88%, respectively. The method is precise with mean inter-day C.V.s within 2.1-6.6% and 0.9-1.7% for LPV and NVP, and accurate (range of inter-day deviations -1.1 to +2.4%, and -1.9 to +0.8%, for LPV and NVP, respectively). The method has been validated and is currently applied to the monitoring of LPV and NVP in HIV patients, and has been notably applied in a study aimed at assessing the extent of transplacental passage of nevirapine and PIs, notably lopinavir, at the time of delivery in pregnant HIV-infected women.

Substantial work on the peripheral and central nervous system complications of HIV was presented at the 16th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections. Six studies of more than 4500 volunteers identified that distal sensory polyneuropathy remains common, ranging from 19% to 66%, with variation based on disease stage, type of antiretroviral therapy, age, and height. Eight studies of more than 2500 volunteers identified that neurocognitive disorders are also common, ranging from 25% to 69%, with variation based on stage of disease, antiretroviral use, diabetes mellitus, and coinfection with hepatitis viruses. Therapy-focused studies identified that resistance testing of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)-derived HIV may improve management of people with HIV-associated neurologic complications, that poorly penetrating antiretroviral therapy is associated with persistent low-level HIV RNA in CSF, and that efavirenz concentrations in CSF are low but in the therapeutic range in most individuals. Neuroimaging reports identified that people living with HIV had abnormal findings on magnetic resonance imaging (gray matter atrophy, abnormal white matter), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (lower neuronal metabolites), and blood-oxygen-level dependent functional magnetic resonance imaging (lower cerebral blood flow). Other important findings on the basic neuroscience of HIV and diagnosis and management of neurologic opportunistic infections are discussed.

When treating HIV-infected patients with hemophilia buy sustiva online , adverse drug reactions and interactions and the effect of treatment on bleeding disorders must be considered. Raltegravir is the first HIV integrase inhibitor, but its use in patients with hemophilia is rarely reported. Nine HIV-positive patients with hemophilia were retrospectively studied with a focus on the virological response, changes in the CD4 count, the tendency to bleed, and the response to replacement therapy before and after raltegravir-based antiretroviral therapy (ART). The nine patients were highly treatment-experienced patients and they received raltegravir-based ART for at least nine months. The patients had their own reasons for changing to raltegravir-based ART. During treatment, the CD4 count increased progressively in four patients, with a median absolute increase of 233 cells/mm(3), while the count stabilized in the remaining five patients. Two previous recipients of lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) who failed to respond to lamivudine (3TC) + zidovudine (ZDV) + efavirenz (EFV) had a viral rebound. Genotyping indicated multidrug resistance to nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) and non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs). A pattern of resistance to raltegravir was evident, including the primary mutation N155H and the secondary mutation T97A. In the two patients, the tendency to bleed decreased markedly and monthly usage of clotting factor VIII decreased significantly decreased. In the remaining seven patients, the viral load remained < 40 copies/mL, there was no evidence of an increased tendency to bleed, and no evidence of changes in the response to replacement therapy. All of the patients had a stable condition with no signs of disease progression and no serious adverse reactions. Results indicated that Raltegravir-based therapy offered a safe and well-tolerated option for HIV-positive patients with hemophilia.

Data on the pharmacogenetic markers of CYP2B6 and biological factors associated with hepatotoxicity in HIV-infected patients receiving an efavirenz-based antiretroviral therapy (ART) regimen are very limited. A total of 134 HIV-infected Thai adults were prospectively enrolled to receive a once-daily regimen of efavirenz 600 mg/tenofovir/lamivudine. Seven single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within CYP2B6 were genotyped using real-time PCR. At 12 weeks after ART, plasma efavirenz concentrations at 12h after dosing were measured. The mean ± standard deviation patient age was 37 ± 8 years, and 77.6% were male. The median (IQR) CD4 count was 43 cells/mm(3) (17-105 cells/mm(3)). Eighteen patients (13.4%) had positive anti-HCV and 5 patients (3.7%) had buy sustiva online positive HBsAg. The frequencies of heterozygous/homozygous mutants of each SNP were 64C>T (11%), 499C>G (0%), 516G>T (55%), 785A>G (63%), 1375A>G (0%), 1459C>T (3%) and 21563C>T (62%). The three most frequent haplotypes identified included *1/*6 (40.3%), *1/*1 (34.3%) and *6/*6 (8.2%). The median (IQR) plasma efavirenz concentration was 2.3mg/L (1.4-3.7 mg/L). At 24 weeks, median (IQR) serum ALP was 98 mg/dL (73-133 mg/dL) and direct bilirubin was 0.11 mg/dL (0.10-0.19 mg/dL). The proportion of grade 1 and grade 2 elevated serum ALP was 12.7% and 1.5%, respectively. By multivariate analysis, factors associated with high ALP, total bilirubin and direct bilirubin included CYP2B6 haplotype *6/*6, high serum ALP at Week 0 and positive anti-HCV (all P<0.05). In summary, HIV-infected patients with the pharmacogenetic marker 'CYP2B6 haplotype *6/*6' may have increased susceptibility to hepatotoxicity with efavirenz-based ART.

For the quantification of the novel non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor etravirine in human plasma, dried blood spots and peripheral buy sustiva online blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) lysate, an assay was developed and validated, using liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry. Etravirine was extracted from plasma by means of protein precipitation with a mixture of methanol and acetonitrile using only 50 microL plasma. Extraction from dried blood spots was performed with a one-step extraction with a mixture of methanol, acetonitrile and 0.2M zinc sulphate in water (1:1:2, v/v/v) and extraction from cell lysate was performed in 50% methanol in water. Chromatographic separation was performed on a reversed phase C18 column (150mmx2.0mm, particle size 5microm) with a quick stepwise gradient using an acetate buffer (pH 5) and methanol, at a flow rate of 0.25mL/min. (13)C(6)-efavirenz was used as an internal standard. The analytical run time was only 10min. The triple quadrupole mass spectrometer was operated in the positive ion-mode and multiple reaction monitoring was used for drug quantification. The method was validated over a range of 25-5000ng/mL in plasma, 50-10,000ng/mL in dried blood spots and a range of 5-2500ng/mL in PBMC lysate. Accuracies ranged from 89% to 106% in plasma, from 94% to 109% in dried blood spots and from 91% to 105% in PBMC lysate. Precisions at the all concentration levels ranged from 1.9% to 14% in plasma, 4.7% to 20% in dried blood spots and from 3.1% to 11% in PBMC lysate. The bioanalytical assay was successfully incorporated with previously developed assays for the determination of all currently approved PIs and NNRTIs in plasma and dried blood spots and it is now applied for therapeutic drug monitoring and pharmacological research in HIV-infected patients treated with etravirine.

In addition, we included a case Cytoxan 1000 Mg (with gynaecomastia)-control (without gynaecomastia) analysis in the second part of this study. Cases and controls were matched according to age, HIV infection CDC clinical category, HCV infection, the date of study and the physician responsible for the patient. Patients bearing known causes of gynaecomastia were excluded. We analysed epidemiological, clinical, haematological and immunological characteristics and the use and duration of the antiretroviral therapy. In 13 cases and 13 controls a sexual hormone profile was carried out.

DRV/r- and EFV-based regimens have an equal effect on T-cell phenotype and function in HIV late presenters. A temporary restoration of HIV-specific T-cell immunity Generic Combivir Cost early in the course of therapy with DRV/r possibly implies a more effective control over HIV in the first months following a PI/r-based regimen, even at late stage of disease.

An open-label, single-centre pilot study of duration 48 weeks was conducted. ABC Cymbalta Alcohol Seizures was added to the original treatment with two NRTIs and one PI at baseline, and at week 6 the PI was replaced by EFV. At each study visit, CD4 cell count, viral load [measured by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)] and clinical chemistry were measured. Fasting blood samples were taken at baseline and at weeks 12, 24, 36 and 48 to measure levels of cholesterol [high-density lipoprotein (HDL)/low-density lipoprotein (LDL)], triglycerides, insulin and C-peptide. Additionally, an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was performed. A bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) and a single slice abdominal and mid-thigh computed tomography (CT) scan were carried out to assess changes in body composition.

Etravirine (ETV) is recommended in combination with a boosted protease inhibitor plus an optimized background regimen for salvage therapy, but there is limited experience with its use in combination with two nucleos(t)ide reverse-transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). This multicenter study aimed to assess the efficacy of this combination in two scenarios: group A) subjects without virologic failure on or no experience with non-nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) switched due to adverse events and group B) subjects switched after a virologic failure on Nolvadex Pills an efavirenz- or nevirapine-based regimen. The primary endpoint was efficacy at 52 weeks analysed by intention-to-treat. Virologic failure was defined as the inability to suppress plasma HIV-RNA to <50 copies/mL after 24 weeks on treatment, or a confirmed viral load >200 copies/mL in patients who had previously achieved a viral suppression or had an undetectable viral load at inclusion. Two hundred eighty seven patients were included. Treatment efficacy rates in group A and B were 88.0% (CI95, 83.9-92.1%) and 77.4% (CI95, 65.0-89.7%), respectively; the rates reached 97.2% (CI95, 95.1-99.3%) and 90.5% (CI95, 81.7-99.3), by on-treatment analysis. The once-a-day ETV treatment was as effective as the twice daily dosing regimen. Grade 1-2 adverse events were observed motivating a treatment switch in 4.2% of the subjects. In conclusion, ETV (once- or twice daily) plus two analogs is a suitable, well-tolerated combination both as a switching strategy and after failure with first generation NNRTIs, ensuring full drug activity.
