New Long-Acting HIV Regimen May Help Patient Adherence
The FDA recently approved the first long-acting regimen for the treatment of HIV in adults. The dosing schedule could help with adherence in a condition where that is particularly crucial. However, some potential challenges exist with the medication, including whether health plans actually will cover it.
On Jan. 21, the FDA approved ViiV Healthcare’s Cabenuva (cabotegravir and rilpivirine) for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults to replace a current antiretroviral regimen in people who are virologically suppressed on it with no history of treatment failure and no known or suspected resistance to either cabotegravir or rilpivirine.
