  • Systemic drug-induced hypersensitivity reactions (HSRs) have been reported for a variety of drugs, and are thought to have a combined immunological, genetic and metabolic basis. These diverse idiosyncratic reactions are both drug and host dependent, and subsequent rechallenge with the drugs responsible can result in a potentially life-threatening clinical reaction.Hypersensitivity has been observed in regard to several drugs used to manage HIV and associated infections, with the antiretrovirals… CONTINUE READING
