Presentation synopsis:

Clinical case - Integrase inhibitors for all: The end of individualised HIV therapy?

In this presentation, Jose Arribas will discuss the pros and cons of using integrase inhibitors for “universal” treatment of persons living with HIV. Even though international expert guidelines have a clear consensus on recommending integrase inhibitors as the cornerstone of ART regimens there are new data -such as weight gain and metabolic changes- that might change the risk/benefit ratio of integrase inhibitors. Besides, he would discuss other recently approved antiretrovirals and new regimens in preclinical development that might become alternatives to integrase inhibitors.
