  • Background: DTV+RPV is currently being studied in phase III as a maintenance regimen for antiretroviral therapy (ART)-na•ve patients who achieve undetectable viral load (VL) on a triple-drug regimen. This paper will discuss real-life clinical results in patients who were switched to DTV+RPV for reasons other than simplification or maintenance. Methods: An observational retrospective study conducted in an inner city HIV clinic identified 14 patients who received DTV+RPV after failing a prior regimen. Gender, race, prior ART, resistance profiles, baseline VL and CD4+ count were captured, and patients were followed up to 05/01/2016 to determine outcome. Results: Six out of 14 are African American, 6 are Caucasian, and 7 are males. Prior to the switch to DTV+RPV, 4 regimens were NNRTI-based, 5 contained protease inhibitors, 6 contained integrase inhibitors, and 11 had a regimen with a two-NRTI backbone. Half of the patients had developed resistance to their previous regimens, with four patients having 2 class-resistance and 3 resistant only to NRTIs. Nine patients had intolerance to their prior regimens. As of May 1, 2016, patients had a combined total of 599-week of VL<20 copies/ml on DTV+RPV. No adverse events were identified. Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that this combination is both safe and well tolerated in patients who had experienced adverse events to previous ART. Also DTV+RPV seem very efficacious in suppressing HIV VL in those with prior resistance. A larger study using this regimen will be needed to confirm its long-term efficacy and safety. 1
