Pharmacokinetic interactions between buprenorphine/naloxone and raltegravir in subjects receiving chronic buprenorphine/naloxone treatment.


BACKGROUND: Interactions between human immuno-deficiency virus (HIV) and opioid-dependence therapies can occur. OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine whether such interactions occurred between buprenorphine/naloxone and raltegravir. METHODS: We performed a within-subject open-labeled pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic study in 12 HIV-seronegative subjects stabilized on at least 3 weeks of buprenorphine/naloxone therapy. Subjects underwent baseline and steady-state evaluation of the effect of raltegravir 400 mg BID on buprenorphine/naloxone parameters. RESULTS: Compared with baseline values,
