    : Etravirine (ETV) is recommended in combination with a boosted protease inhibitor plus an optimized background regimen for salvage therapy, but there is limited experience with its use in combination with two nucleos(t)ide reverse-transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). This multicenter study aimed...

    Non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) have a longer half-life than nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTIs). Simultaneous interruption of all drugs exposes the patients to NNRTI monotherapy. This study evaluated HIV-1 genotype after treatment interruption (TI) of...
