During approximately the past 15 years, HIV infection has been transformed into a chronic manageable disease primarily due to the effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy. Treatment guidelines emphasize the need for at least two or preferably three fully active medications in the salvage regimens of patients experiencing virologic failure. The new regimen should be started with as little interruption as possible because the structured interruption of treatment in patient with multidrug-resistant HIV infection is associated with greater progression of the disease. The new pharmacokinetic enhancer, cobicistat, is available as a fixed-dose combination product with antiretroviral medication that allows the treatment to be simplified and reduces the pill burden.
