Isentress®
Active Ingredient

Raltegravir.

Description

Isentress® is manufactured by MSD. The raw material is Raltegravir – belongs to a relatively new drug class called integrase strand transfer inhibitors (INSTIs).

Indications:

- treatment of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in adults and children weighing at least 25 kg, in association with other antiviral drugs.

MOA (mechanism of action):

Raltegravir targets integrase, an HIV enzyme that integrates the viral genetic material into human chromosomes, a critical step in the pathogenesis of HIV. The drug is metabolized away via glucuronidation. Raltegravir has shown activity against HIV-2 in vitro.

Dosage

Isentress® tablets must be swallowed whole.

Adults:

For treatment-naive patients, patients who are virologically suppressed on an initial regimen: 400 mg twice daily or 1200 mg (2 × 600mg) once daily.

For treatment-experienced patients: 400 mg twice daily.

For treatment-naive, treatment-experienced patients when co-administered with Rifampin: 800 mg (2 × 400 mg) twice daily.

Precautions:

HIV can be transmitted through sexual contact with HIV positive partner, blood (e.g., sharing needles, handling blood instruments, receiving blood transfusions, blood products, or organ/tissue transplants that were infected with HIV), childbirth, toiletries (razors and toothbrushes).Therefore, both HIV-positive and HIV-negative individuals are advised to have any kind of sex using a latex or polyurethane condom, avoid sharing needles or other things like toothbrushes or razors.
