Triple therapy effectively suppresses HIV-2
« on: January 31, 2024, 09:03:41 am »
A small study indicates DTG + 2x NRTI is successful at suppressing HIV 2.

In Brief:
Safety and Efficacy of Triple Therapy With Dolutegravir Plus 2 NRTI HIV Type 2. Results From a 48-Week Phase 2 Study

We conducted a phase 2, single-arm, open-label trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a triple therapy regimen that included DTG in persons with HIV-2 (PWHIV-2) in Portugal.

A total of 30 patients were enrolled (22 women; median age, 55 years). Three patients discontinued the study. At week 48, all participants (27) had pVL <40 copies/mL. No virological failures were observed.

DTG plus 2 NRTIs is safe and effective as first-line treatment for PWHIV-2 with a tolerability profile previously known.
