Brand name: Intelence TM

Active ingredients: etravirine

What it is used for

Etravirine, in combination with other antiretroviral agents, is indicated for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in antiretroviral treatment-experienced adults who have evidence of viral replication and resistance to Non-nucleoside Transcriptase Inhibitors and other antiretroviral agents. This indication is based on 24 week analyses from 2 randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled trials of etravirine. Both studies were conducted in clinically advanced, 3-class antiretroviral (NNRTI, N(t)RTI, PI) treatment-experienced adults (see Clinical Trials). Treatment history of patients and genotypic testing should be performed to guide the use of etravirine.
