Summary

  • Studies evaluating switches in suppressed patients receiving stable lopinavir/ritonavir-based antiretroviral therapy switched to raltegravir found improvements in serum lipids
    • SWITCHMRK studies[Eron 2010] were stopped at Week 24 because of increased risk of virologic failure; however, the SPIRAL study[Martínez 2010] did not demonstrate such a difference
