The first patients have been enrolled in a potentially ground-breaking trial in Uganda for a capsule of granules containing four HIV drugs that can be easily administered to young children.
11-14 June 2019
As development continues for a “4-in-1” fixed-dose combination (abacavir/lamivudine/ lopinavir/ritonavir) for young children, interim results of the LIVING study for an optimized “2-in-1” lopinavir/ritonavir paediatric formulation were released. The study – which enrolled over 1,000 children in sub-Saharan Africa – showed that 83% of children were virologically suppressed at 48 weeks, compared to 55% at the beginning of the study.
