Updated Guideline: Selecting an Initial ART Regimen
July 14, 2017
The updated NYSDOH AIDS Institute guideline Selecting an Initial Antiretroviral (ART) Regimen is now available on the HIV Clinical Resource website.
This updated guideline is based on a comprehensive review of available clinical trial data. It includes recommendations for prescribing ART for adult patients with HIV-1 infection who are treatment-naïve, not pregnant, and have no acquired drug resistance.
In formulating its recommendations, the Medical Care Criteria Committee balanced the strength of published evidence regarding efficacy of treatment regimens with factors that influence adherence to ART, including pill burden, tolerability, and dosing schedule.
