Updates in HIV Pharmacotherapy: It’s the beginning of a new era! – 1 CE

Activity Overview

A few new medications have been approved by the FDA in the last few years, causing new treatment regimens to be developed. A three-drug regimen was the cornerstone of HIV therapy. However, more recent data shows that two-drug regimens are equally effective in managing viral replication. This CE activity is aimed to update the audience about these changes. It recalls the different classes of HIV medications currently available, and discusses the preferred and alternative medication regimens based on the latest Department of Health and Human Services guidelines. Data from recently published research will be extensively reviewed.

Pharmacist Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this continuing education activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Recall the life cycle of HIV and where current treatment options target the virus
  2. Describe the different classes and regimens of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART)
  3. Identify the most appropriate time to initiate HAART, which medications to recommend first-line, and when to monitor and follow-up
