Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Once-Daily versus Twice-Daily Raltegravir in Treatment-Naïve HIV-Infected Patients
Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy,  Clinical Article

Rizk ML et al. – With QD dosing, Ctrough values correlated with the likelihood of virologic response. Failure to achieve an HIV RNA level of <50 copies/ml appeared predominantly at high baseline HIV RNA levels in both treatment arms and was associated with lower values of GM Ctrough in the 800–mg–QD arm, though other possible drivers of efficacy, such as time above a threshold concentration, could not be evaluated due to the sparse sampling scheme. Together, these findings emphasize the importance of the shape of the plasma concentration–versus–time curve for long–term efficacy.
