Despite integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI)-containing regimens now being considered a preferred option for both initial therapy and switching strategies in virologically suppressed patients, their effects on lymphocyte phenotypes and functions in the course of effective combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) are still unclear. Thus, we investigated the effect of a 24-week elvitegravir/cobicistat/emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (EVG/c/FTC/TDF) regimen on the T cell compartment and HIV reservoirs in HIV-infected patients switching from a suppressive protease inhibitor-based regimen.

Abstract

Despite integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI)-containing regimens now being considered a preferred option for both initial therapy and switching strategies in virologically suppressed patients, their effects on lymphocyte phenotypes and functions in the course of effective combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) are still unclear. Thus, we investigated the effect of a 24-week elvitegravir/cobicistat/emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (EVG/c/FTC/TDF) regimen on the T cell compartment and HIV reservoirs in HIV-infected patients switching from a suppressive protease inhibitor-based regimen.
