  • Dual therapy with DRV/r plus 3TC was non-inferior regarding maintenance of viral suppression and equally well tolerated as DRV/r plus TDF/FTC (or ABC/3TC)
  • Persistent virological suppression was maintained after switching to dual therapy with DRV/r plus 3TC
  • These results reinforce the efficacy of dual therapy with a fully active boosted PI and 3TC for maintenance of virological suppression


* Randomisation was stratified by baseline nucleos (t)ides


  • Primary Endpoint: proportion with treatment success (HIV RNA < 50 c/mL) at W48, ITTe , snapshot
