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.


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.


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


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.

The 573 HIV-tuberculosis co-infected patients who initiated antiretroviral therapy had a median CD4 count of 92 cells/mm(3) and HIV-1 RNA of 5.6 log10 copies/mL. Mortality at week 48 was 6.1% (35/573). Fifty-three (9.2%) patients presented a tuberculosis-IRIS within 12 weeks of starting antiretroviral therapy. Being female and having a low CD4 count, high HIV-1 RNA load, low body mass index and smear-positive pulmonary tuberculosis were independently associated with tuberculosis-IRIS. After adjustment for baseline body mass index, CD4 count and hemoglobin, occurrence of tuberculosis-IRIS was independently associated with 48-week mortality (aOR 2.72 95%CI 1.14-6.54). Immunological and HIV-1 virological responses and tuberculosis treatment outcomes were not different between patients with and without tuberculosis-IRIS.

Antiretroviral therapy received mixed reviews in 1998. The approvals of efavirenz (Sustiva) and abacavir (Ziagen) have increased drug options. The use of genotypic and phenotypic resistance assays has helped clinicians make better treatment decisions. However, long-term side effects of HAART (e.g., high cholesterol, diabetes, and lipodystrophy) have emerged in patients who have responded to HAART regimens. Finally, it is becoming increasingly obvious that HIV must be managed by HIV-experienced clinicians, as studies show that their patients are healthier, live longer, and are less costly to care for than those managed by generalists.

Literature data pertaining to the decision to allow a waiver of in vivo bioequivalence testing for the approval of immediate-release (IR) solid oral dosage forms containing efavirenz as the only active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) are reviewed. Because of lack of conclusive data about efavirenz's permeability and its failure to comply with the "high solubility" criteria according to the Biopharmaceutics Classification System (BCS), the API can be classified as BCS Class II/IV. In line with the solubility characteristics, the innovator product does not meet the dissolution criteria for a "rapidly dissolving product." Furthermore, product variations containing commonly used excipients or in the manufacturing process have been reported to impact the rate and extent of efavirenz absorption. Despite its wide therapeutic index, subtherapeutic levels of efavirenz can lead to treatment failure and also facilitate the emergence of efavirenz-resistant mutants. For all these reasons, a biowaiver for IR solid oral dosage forms containing efavirenz as the sole API is not scientifically justified for reformulated or multisource drug products.

In total 1539 patients were included in the analysis. Most were clinically and immunologically stable (clinical failure: 2.7% (AZT) and 2.8% (TDF); immunological failure: 4.6% (AZT) and 4.8% (TDF)). In EFV-based regimens (n = 1162), TDF was significantly associated with higher rates of virologic suppression than AZT (93.8% vs. 88.1%; weighted odds ratio: 2.15 (95% CI: 1.29-3.58; P = 0.003)). In NVP-based regimens, a similar trend was observed, but not significant (89.4% vs. 86.7%; 1.99 (0.83-4.75, P = 0.121)).

sustiva reviews

The burden of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is mainly concentrated to resources-limited countries where the response to available antiretroviral therapy is often limited by the occurrence of toxicity or by the emergence of HIV drug resistance. Efavirenz and nevirapine are the antiretroviral drugs most prescribed in resources-limited countries as part of antiretroviral combination therapy. Their metabolism and conjugation are largely influenced by enzymatic genetic polymorphisms. The genetic variability of their metabolism could be associated to different metabolic phenotypes causing reduced patients' adherence because of toxicity or drug-drug interactions with concomitant therapies. The purpose of this review is to summarize published evidence on pharmacogenetic and pharmacokinetic aspects related to efavirenz and nevirapine, the influence of concomitant anti-tubercular, anti-malarial or contraceptive treatments, and the impact of human genetic variation and drug-drug interaction on the virologic and immunologic response to antiretroviral therapy in resources-limited countries.

Since the mid-1990s, highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has modified the clinical course of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, reducing the rate of disease progression, the incidence of opportunistic infections, and mortality. The authors of this paper performed an economic analysis to estimate the cost-effectiveness of the HAART regimens in Italy for managing HIV-infected patients according to national guidelines.

Three classes of antiretroviral agents are usually available for the treatment of HIV infection: nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (IN), non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (INN) and protease inhibitors (IP). Two methods by reversed-phase liquid chromatography were developed for the analysis of 19 antiretroviral molecules belonging to these three therapeutic classes and used in medicinal products. Both of these HPLC techniques use a C18 column and UV detection. The first method is for IN family analysis and allows eight molecules to be separated: zalcitabine, lamivudine, amdoxovir, emtricitabine, didanosine, stavudine, zidovudine and abacavir. The second method is for INN and IP family analysis and allows 11 molecules to be separated: fosamprenavir, nevirapine, indinavir, amprenavir, saquinavir, atazanavir, ritonavir, lopinavir, efavirenz, nelfinavir and tipranavir. The combination of these two methods makes possible the quality control of mono-, bi- or tri-therapy pharmaceutical products and the detection of illegal products sold particularly in developing countries.

Blood samples were obtained from 130 HIV-infected patients receiving efavirenz in combination with other antiretroviral agents for more than 3 months. Efavirenz plasma concentrations were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography. An evaluation of CNS side-effects was performed and the viral load, CD4 cell count and other clinical and laboratory data were assessed. In 85 patients, these measures were repeated at 3 month intervals.

Tuberculosis (TB) remains an important problem in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Concomitant administration therapy of both TB and HIV is fraught with difficulties. Despite the fact that the use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) led to significant improve quality of life and decrease morbidity including mortality-associated to HIV/AIDS, adverse drug effects lead to interruptions in both HIV and TB therapy. In addition, an important problem when HAART is initiated in patients with TB is the possibility of developing immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS). A six-month regimen consisting of isoniazid, rifampicin, pyrazinamide, and ethambutal for two months followed by isoniazid and rifampicin for four months is a standard regimen for the treatment of known or presumed drug-susceptible TB disease. The following strategy may minimize the risk of IRIS. Patients with CD4 cell counts < 100 cells/mm3, efavirenz-based HAART regimen is recommended and should be initiated as soon as the patients can tolerate TB treatment. Patients with CD4 cell counts 100-350 cells/mm3, HAART should be started at two months after TB treatment initiation. HAART should be deferred with closed follow-up of CD4 cell counts if patients have CD4 cell counts > 350 cells/mm3.

We prospectively studied 35 HIV-infected participants (18 on d4T+3TC+EFV (stavudine+lamivudine+efavirenz), eight on AZT+3TC+EFV (zidovudine+lamivudine+efavirenz), and nine who were antiretroviral therapy-naïve) and 20 HIV-negative controls. Antioxidant profile (total antioxidant status, glutathione reductase, glutathione peroxidase, uric acid, ceruloplasmin, zinc, and albumin), CD4 cell count, plasma viral load, dietary intake, and history of smoking and alcohol use were determined at baseline and at twelve months.

Antiretroviral drugs are among the therapeutic agents with the highest potential for drug-drug interactions (DDIs). In the absence of clinical data, DDIs are mainly predicted based on preclinical data and knowledge of the disposition of individual drugs. Predictions can be challenging, especially when antiretroviral drugs induce and inhibit multiple cytochrome P450 (CYP) isoenzymes simultaneously.

Since their discovery, non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) have become one of the cornerstones of highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART). Currently, three NNRTI agents, efavirenz, nevirapine and delavirdine are commercially available. Efavirenz and nevirapine, used in combination with nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), provide durable regimens with efficacy comparable to protease inhibitor (PI) containing therapies. When virological failure occurs following treatment with an NNRTI, the resistance mutations can confer reduced sensitivity to the entire agent class. Therefore, the strategy for the development of next generation NNRTIs has been to focus on compounds which have improved potencies against the clinically relevant viral mutants. Agents with improved virological profiles and which maintain the ease of administration and favorable safety profiles of the current agents should find use in anti-retroviral naïve patients as well as in components of salvage regimens in the anti-retroviral experienced patient. This review summarizes the recent developments with compounds in clinical trials as of January 2002 as well as to summarize information on new agents appearing in the primary and patent literature between January 2001 and December 2002.

Data from 3589 TDM samples were available from 2447 subjects. The greatest numbers of plasma concentrations were assessed for lopinavir (22.4%), efavirenz (18.5%), atazanavir (17.0%) and saquinavir (11.6%). As age increased, median standardized NNRTI concentrations remained constant, whereas PI concentrations increased (correlation coefficient 0.04, P = 0.033). In a regression analysis stratified by antiretroviral drug class, standardized plasma concentrations were significantly associated with age for PIs (0.05 increase in standard deviation of drug concentration with each 10 year increase in age, P = 0.044), but not for NNRTIs or other clinical parameters, including hepatic transaminase results or time to antiretroviral treatment modification.

A case-cohort study was used to determine the effect of baseline nonnucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) resistance, as assessed by viral genotyping, on the response to efavirenz-containing regimens in AIDS Clinical Trials Group A5095. The sample included a random cohort of efavirenz-treated subjects plus unselected subjects who experienced virologic failure. Of 220 subjects in the random cohort, 57 (26%) had virologic failure. The prevalence of baseline NNRTI resistance was 5%. The risk of virologic failure for subjects with baseline NNRTI resistance was higher than that for subjects without such resistance (hazard ratio 2.27 [95% confidence interval], 1.15-4.49; P = .018). These results support resistance testing before starting antiretroviral therapy.

The current standard of care for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) treatment is a three-drug regimen containing a nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor, a protease inhibitor, or an integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI) plus two nucleoside/tide reverse transcriptase inhibitors. Given their potency, safety, and distinctive mechanism of action, INSTIs represent an important advance in HIV type 1 (HIV-1) therapy. Dolutegravir (DTG) is a new-generation INSTI recently approved for the treatment of HIV-1-infected adult patients, with distinct advantages compared with other available antiretroviral agents. In well-designed, large clinical trials, DTG-containing regimens have demonstrated either noninferiority or superiority to current first-line agents such as raltegravir-, darunavir/ritonavir-, and efavirenz-containing regimens. The favorable safety profile, low potential for drug interactions, minimal impact on lipids, good tolerability, and high resistance barrier of DTG makes this compound one of the preferred choices for HIV therapy in multiple clinical scenarios, including treatment-naïve and treatment-experienced patients. DTG is the only antiretroviral drug not yet associated with de novo emergence of buy sustiva resistance mutations in treatment-naïve individuals. However, data from in vitro studies and clinical trial suggest the possibility of cross-resistance between first- and second-generation INSTIs. Even though these profiles are infrequent at the moment, they need to be monitored in all current patients treated with INSTIs. With its potent activity, good tolerability, simplicity of dosing, and minimal drug interaction profile, DTG will likely play a major role in the management of patients with HIV-1 infection. On the basis of clinical trial data, current guidelines endorse DTG in combination with nucleoside/tide reverse transcriptase inhibitors as one of the recommended regimens in antiretroviral therapy-naïve patients. Most of the favorable clinical experiences from clinical trials are based on the combination of DTG with abacavir/lamivudine, and DTG is planned to be coformulated with abacavir/lamivudine. This will provide a further advantage, given that single tablet regimens are associated with higher adherence rates as well as improvement in quality of life and enhanced patient preference.

Elevations in C-reactive protein (CRP) are associated with increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, increased HIV disease progression, and death in HIV-infected patients. Use of abacavir has been reported to increase CVD risk. We assessed the effect of virologically suppressive efavirenz (EFV)-based antiretroviral therapy on high sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) levels over a 96-week period with particular attention to the effect of gender and abacavir use. Banked sera from entry and week 96 visits of AIDS Clinical Trials Group A5095 participants were assayed for hsCRP, then analyzed by gender, abacavir randomization, and for correlation with changes in fasting metabolic parameters. Analyses of hsCRP were conducted in two phases and involved a total of 145 men and 51 women. hsCRP did not differ by gender at baseline but higher levels were seen at week 96 in women (median 6 mg/liter; Q1, Q3, 1.8, 13.8) compared to men (median 1.6 mg/liter; Q1, Q3, 0.9, 4.2, p < 0.001), with an estimated shift in hsCRP by gender of 2.5 mg/liter (95% CI 1.0, 5.1). There was no difference in hsCRP levels by abacavir use. Changes in hsCRP did not correlate with changes in insulin resistance or with changes buy sustiva in fasting lipids. Durably virologically suppressive therapy with EFV-based regimens did not decrease hsCRP levels over a 96-week period. hsCRP levels increased significantly only in women. Randomization to abacavir had no effect on changes in hsCRP levels. Changes in hsCRP levels did not correlate with changes in fasting metabolic parameters.

Efavirenz is a second-generation non-nucleoside inhibitor of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) that has recently been approved for use against HIV-1 infection. Compared with first-generation drugs such as nevirapine, efavirenz shows greater resilience to drug resistance mutations within HIV-1 RT. In order to understand the basis for this resilience at the molecular level and buy sustiva to help the design of further-improved anti-AIDS drugs, we have determined crystal structures of efavirenz and nevirapine with wild-type RT and the clinically important K103N mutant.

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) can be compromised by selection of drug resistance strains, which can be promoted by lack of adherence during therapy and drug tolerance, and some of these drug-resistant strains can persist for years as minority populations. The K103N drug resistance mutation is selected by the use of non-nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors, including nevirapine or efavirenz (EFV), used in low-income countries. Here we describe the use of a less expensive qualitative point mutation polymerase chain reaction (PMqPCRK103N) targeting K103N mutation. To validate the use of this methodology, we tested previously sequenced samples from patients treated with highly active ART with viral loads above 2,000 copies/ml and compared the results of our assay with Illumina deep sequencing. Due to its low cost and high specificity, this test is particularly suitable for low-income countries to screen for pretreatment resistance in patients either initiating ART or failing first- buy sustiva line regimens containing EFV.

The biggest challenge facing highly antiretroviral-experienced patients and their caregivers is the diminishing number of therapeutic options available that sustain activity despite increasing numbers of drug-resistance mutations. New options in antiretroviral treatment have been introduced: two new members of traditional antiretroviral classes (darunavir and etravirine) and two drugs with novel mechanisms of action (raltegravir and maraviroc).

T-20, a fusion inhibitor comprised of a portion of the gp41 protein, lowers viral loads by as much as 97 percent. Because T-20 confers no cross-resistance with currently used antivirals, T-20 is a good candidate for use as a salvage therapy. T-20 is planned to be administered by subcutaneous infusion pump to 72 patients who are NNRTI-naive and have failed indinavir, ritonavir, or nelfinavir. Initially, T-20 will be given alone, then in combination with efavirenz and nelfinavir plus either saquinavir or ritonavir. Concerns that HIV can easily become resistant to T-20, as observed in cell cultures, would potentially leave some trial participants with limited treatment options. Gilead Sciences, manufacturers of adefovir, has enlarged the access program for adefovir to include individuals who have failed two nucleoside analogs and at least one protease inhibitor. Gilead strongly recommends that study Generic Elavil Pictures participants routinely have kidney tests, as higher doses of the drug have produced signs of Fanconi-like syndrome.

This is a non-randomised, open label study. We collected information about demography, viral load, CD-4 count, fracture Abilify Medication Price risk factors. We measured serum 25(OH)D, parathyroid hormone (intact PTH), inorganic phosphate, corrected calcium, alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and BMD of hip and spine at baseline and after 12 months of routine follow up. Patients were treatment experienced and were divided into tenofovir containing, efavirenz containing, and protease Inhibitor (PI) containing regimens.

The model shows, in terms of cost per gained QALY, single tablet regimen (STR) appeared to be the most cost-effective therapeutic choice (€22,017), followed by tenofovir (TDF) + lamivudine + efavirenz (EFV) (€24,526), and TDF/emtricitabine (FTC) + nevirapine (€26,416), and TDF + FTC + EFV (€26,558); the remaining strategies have an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) value varying from €28,000 to €41,000 per QALY. The sensitivity analysis on the main variables confirmed the validity of the base case scenario.

HIV-1 infected children with the MDR1-3435-C/T genotype had more rapid virologic responses to HAART at week 8 with higher plasma nelfinavir concentrations compared to those with the C/C genotype. These findings suggest that P-gp may play an important role in the pharmacokinetics and virologic response to HAART containing nelfinavir.

The possibility of incorporating generics into combination antiretroviral therapy and breaking apart once-daily single-tablet regimens (STRs), may result in less efficacious medications and/or more complex regimens with the expectation of marked monetary savings. A modeling approach that assesses the merits of such policies in terms of lifelong costs and health outcomes using adherence and effectiveness data from real-world U.S. settings.

Previous studies have demonstrated that lopinavir/ritonavir monotherapy maintained plasma HIV-1 RNA suppression in a large proportion of antiretroviral naive subjects. However, more subjects receiving lopinavir/ritonavir monotherapy experienced confirmed virologic rebound >50 copies/ml compared to a standard three-drug HAART regimen. In this study, we sought to determine the factors associated with maintenance of virologic suppression in subjects receiving lopinavir/ritonavir monotherapy. Antiretroviral-naive HIV-1-infected volunteers were randomized 2:1 to initiate a lopinavir/ritonavir-based combination regimen followed by simplification to lopinavir/ritonavir monotherapy or an efavirenz-based triple combination therapy and followed for 96 weeks. Potential predictors of time to loss of virologic response included baseline demographics, baseline HIV-1 RNA levels, baseline CD4(+) T cell counts, adherence as determined by 4-day subject recall, duration of HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/ml prior to simplification, and lopinavir concentrations. By the Cox proportional hazards model, higher reported adherence levels and higher baseline CD4(+) T cell counts were associated with a greater likelihood of maintaining virologic suppression while receiving lopinavir/ritonavir monotherapy. Lopinavir concentrations, including trough concentrations, were not significantly associated with virologic outcomes. This analysis suggests that adherence and higher baseline CD4(+) T cell counts may help to predict who will sustain virologic suppression with lopinavir/ritonavir monotherapy. The data also suggest that measuring lopinavir concentrations is not useful in predicting virologic response in these patients.
