Tuesday, January 31, 2017

1:00 PM (ET), 12:00 PM (CT), 11:00 AM (MT), 10:00 AM (PT)

Overview

Assessment of Needs

The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity on the evolving challenges of managing HIV disease as part of a nationwide continuing medical education (CME) effort for physicians. Despite the availability of 29 US Food and Drug Administration-approved antiretroviral drugs in 6 mechanistic classes, additional drugs for the treatment of HIV infection are necessary. Important properties of investigational HIV drugs are virologic activity (especially against drug-resistant viruses), efficacy, and adherence. Investigational drugs in existing classes include the nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitor EFdA, the nonnucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitor doravirine, and the integrase strand transfer inhibitors bictegravir and cabotegravir. Investigational drugs in new classes include the attachment inhibitor fostemsavir and the entry inhibitor ibalizumab. Continued advances in HIV treatment will result from further development of these compounds.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify investigational new HIV drugs in existing classes
  • Identify investigational new HIV drugs in new classes
  • Identify regimens for treatment-experienced patients using investigational new drugs
