Raltegravir is the first integrase strand-transfer inhibitor (INSTI) approved for use in highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for the management of HIV infection. Resistance to antiretrovirals can compromise the efficacy of HAART regimens. Therefore it is important to understand the emergence of resistance to RAL and cross-resistance to other INSTIs(More)
Integrase inhibitors (INI) form a new drug class in the treatment of HIV-1 patients. We developed a linear regression modeling approach to make a quantitative raltegravir (RAL) resistance phenotype prediction, as Fold Change in IC50 against a wild type virus, from mutations in the integrase genotype. We developed a clonal genotype-phenotype database with(More)
The integrase inhibitor raltegravir (RAL) is currently used for the treatment of both treatment-naïve and treatment-experienced HIV-1-infected patients. Elvitegravir (EVG) is in late phases of clinical development. Since significant cross-resistance between RAL and EVG is observed, there is a need for second-generation integrase inhibitors (INIs) with a(More)
OBJECTIVES Combination microbicide vaginal rings may be more effective than single microbicide rings at reducing/preventing sexual transmission of HIV. Here, we report the pre-clinical development and macaque pharmacokinetics of matrix-type silicone elastomer vaginal rings containing dapivirine and darunavir. METHODS Macaque rings containing 25 mg(More)
Major advances in antiretroviral (ARV) therapy during the last decade have made HIV-1 infections a chronic, manageable disease. In spite of these significant advancements, ARV drug resistance remains a hurdle for HIV-infected patients who are committed to lifelong treatments. Several commercially marketed and/or laboratory-developed tests (LDT) are(More)
Endogenicity has been considered to have a major predictive value as to the therapeutic response to antidepressants. Two recently introduced measures of endogenicity (the Michigan Discriminant Index and the Hamilton Endogenomorphy Subscale) were investigated regarding their potential predictive value. It was concluded that, in a group of selected depressive(More)
