Contemporary Management of HIV 2021: Emerging Paradigms in ART

Listen as expert faculty consider important clinical questions related to rapid ART initiation, long-acting antiretroviral drugs, and 2-drug regimens for ART, with an emphasis on the role of new and emerging strategies in the treatment of HIV.
Paul E. Sax, MD
Released: August 25, 2021

In this episode, Paul E. Sax, MD, discusses emerging drug therapies and treatment options for patients with HIV, including rapid initiation of ART, long-acting ART, and 2-drug ART regimens. The overview will include analyses from:

  • The RAPID ART program in San Francisco, where same-day initiation of ART led to faster HIV-1 RNA suppression that was maintained at greater than 92% during a 3-year period
  • The DIAMOND study analyzing virologic efficacy and safety at 48 weeks after initiating DRV/COBI/FTC/TAF within 24 hours of HIV infection diagnosis
  • A rapid ART start program in young PWH in New Orleans that demonstrated achievement of viral suppression in fewer than 30 days and no discontinuations due to adverse events
  • The ATLAS (including ATLAS-2M) and FLAIR studies that demonstrated efficacy and safety of long-acting injectable CAB plus RPV
  • SWORD-1 and SWORD-2 that demonstrated switching to a 2-drug regimen of DTG plus RPV in virologically suppressed adults was safe and effective
  • GEMINI-1 and GEMINI-2 that demonstrated noninferiority of DTG plus 3TC compared with DTG plus FTC/TDF
  • TANGO that demonstrated safety and efficacy of switching to DTG/3TC in virologically suppressed adults receiving a TAF-based regimen

In addition, Dr. Sax reviews current recommendations by the DHHS, WHO, and IAS-USA regarding these emerging therapies and treatment paradigms.
