The latest on HIV and Hep C treatment recommendations.

Important preliminary recommendations involving the use of hepatitis C protease inhibitors among people living with HIV are provided by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services panelists in the March 27 update to the Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in HIV-1-Infected Adults and Adolescents. Though both Incivek (telaprevir) and Victrelis (boceprevir) are listed as options, the panelists draw upon drug-drug interaction data to conclude that Incivek should be used instead of Victrelis when ARV regimens that include Norvir (ritonavir)–boosted Reyataz (atazanavir) or efavirenz (found in Sustiva and Atripla) are being used to treat HIV.
