Sustiva is used to treat HIV infection in combination with other anti-HIV medications. If Sustiva is the only drug you take to treat HIV infection, it may stop working.

Sustiva is an oral medication that is used for the treatment of infections with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It is similar to nevirapine (Viramune) and delavirdine (Rescriptor).

Sustiva is also known as Efavirenz, Stocrin.

Sustiva is in a class of drugs called reverse transcriptase inhibitors which also includes zalcitabine (Hivid), zidovudine (Retrovir), didanosine (Videx), and lamivudine (Epivir). During infection with HIV, the HIV virus multiplies within the body's cells. The newly-formed viruses then are released from the cells and spread throughout the body where they infect other cells. In this manner, the infection continually spreads to new, uninfected cells that the body is continually producing, and HIV infection is perpetuated. When producing new viruses, the HIV virus must manufacture new DNA for each virus. Reverse transcriptase is the enzyme that the virus uses to form this new DNA. Sustiva directly inhibits the activity of reverse transcriptase and blocks the production of DNA and new viruses. Unlike zidovudine, efavirenz does not need to be converted to an active form. Sustiva does not kill existing HIV virus and it is not a cure for HIV.


Take this drug by mouth, generally once daily as directed. Take on an empty stomach with a glass of water. Taking Sustiva with food, especially a high-fat meal can lead to increased blood levels of the drug and increase your risk of having side effects.

Best taken at bedtime during the first month of use. Using this drug regularly at bedtime may decrease certain side effects. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. Do not take more or less of this drug than prescribed, or stop taking it unless directed to do so by your doctor. Read the patient information leaflet provided by your pharmacist.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Sustiva suddenly.


If you overdose Sustiva and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.


Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

The primary end point--viral load decay rate per day--was 0.13 log10 RNA copies/ml per day. Over 7 days, we observed a median 0.89 log10 decrease in HIV-1 viral load; seven individuals (44%) had a decrease of > 1 log10. The most significant adverse effects were grade I diarrhoea (31%) and a mild headache (25%). Steady-state drug levels were achieved by day 6.

In 2001 an antiretroviral treatment programme was initiated with the first-line regimen stavudine, lamivudine and efavirenz. In 2003, the fixed-dose combination of stavudine, lamivudine and nevirapine was recommended. Thus, first-line therapy was changed and FDN was initiated when patients were switched from efavirenz to nevirapine.

Samples of efavirenz (EFZ) were evaluated to investigate the influence of the micronization process on EFZ stability. A combination of X-ray diffraction, thermal analysis, FTIR, observations of isotropic chemical shifts of (1)H in distinct solvents, their temperature dependence and spin-lattice relaxation time constants (T1), solution (1D and 2D) (13)C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and solid-state (13)C NMR (CPMAS NMR) provides valuable structural information and structural elucidation of micronized EFZ and heptane-recrystallized polymorphs (EFZ/HEPT). This study revealed that the micronization process did not affect the EFZ crystalline structure. It was observed that the structure of EFZ/HEPT is in the same form as that obtained from ethyl acetate/hexane, as shown in the literature. A comparison of the solid-state NMR spectra revealed discrepancies regarding the assignments of some carbons published in the literature that have been resolved.

HIV-1 viral load (VL) monitoring is recommended but seldom performed in resource-constrained countries. An evaluation of patients receiving first-line antiretroviral therapy in a multicountry PEPFAR program (RV288) was performed to determine the rates and predictors of virologic suppression. Resistance data from treatment failures are available from Uganda and Nigeria. Each country enrolled 325 subjects into this cross-sectional study. Subjects on first-line therapy were randomly selected for HIV RNA testing (viral load). Regimens included efavirenz or nevirapine with zidovudine/lamivudine or tenofovir/lamivudine. VL was determined from plasma using the Roche COBAS TaqMan HIV-1 Test, High Pure System v1.0 (47 copies/ml). Genotypic resistance testing was performed on samples with VL>1,000 copies/ml. From Uganda, 85% of subjects were undetectable while 7% (23/325) had VL>1,000 copies/ml. The HIV-1 subtype distribution was as follows: A=47.6%, C=14.3%, and D=38.1%. No resistance mutations were found in 14% of subjects. All subjects with resistance had the M184V mutation. Of subjects failing a zidovudine regimen less than 1 year, 88% (7/8) had no thymidine analogue mutations (TAMs), compared to 50% (4/8) failing greater than 1 year. Four subjects (25%) had more than two mutations from the TAM-1 pathway (41L, 210W, 215Y). In Nigeria, 82% were undetectable while 14% (45/325) had VL>1,000 copies/ml. HIV-1 subtype distribution was as follows: 62.8%=CRF02_AG, 34%=pure G, and 2.8%=A. Of the 35 genotyped subjects, 14% (5/35) had no resistance mutations. Of the remainder, 10% (3/30) had no nucleoside analogue mutations while 33% (10/30) had only M184V along with nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) mutations. Forty percent (10/25) of subjects on zidovudine failed without TAMs. Another 25% (5/25) of subjects failing on zidovudine had more than two TAM-1 mutations. Individuals failing first-line antiretroviral therapy (ART) may retain sensitivity to one or more nucleoside analogues from the regimen. Knowledge of drug resistance patterns allow for selection of drugs that can be recycled in future regimens. Accumulation of resistance mutations may compromise future treatment options.

Intrapatient variability of drug concentrations over time has not been evaluated as a predictor of drug response but may provide information on the onset and maintenance of response and a patient's adherence to therapy. Our objective was to develop a pharmacologically based measure of intrapatient variability of concentrations and investigate its association with a patient's response to antiretroviral therapy. Efavirenz concentrations were obtained for 50 children enrolled in Pediatric AIDS Clinical Trials Group study 382, a concentration-controlled trial of efavirenz plus nelfinavir and at least one nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor. Efavirenz pharmacokinetic parameters were determined from 24-h concentration-time profiles at weeks 2 and 6 and used to predict trough concentrations obtained during 1 year of therapy. A concentration predictability score, defined as the fraction of measured trough concentrations that fell within a +/-50% range of the predicted concentration, was used to place subjects into high and low concentration predictability groups. Relationships between this score and human immunodeficiency virus RNA levels in plasma were investigated. Eight of 33 children (24%) in the high-predictability group experienced viral rebound, compared with 9 of 17 children (53%) in the low-predictability group (P = 0.042). Children with low predictability scores exhibited a significantly shorter time to their first viral rebounds and were significantly more likely to experience viral rebound; the latter finding persisted after adjustment for baseline viral load and efavirenz exposure at week 6. This novel method for the quantitation of intrapatient concentration variability was independently predictive of virologic rebound. This measure may allow interventions to minimize therapeutic failure and is applicable to other drugs.

Overall, 28 patients receiving a raltegravir-based regimen (4 naive) with tenofovir-emtricitabine (18 cases) or abacavir-lamivudine (10 cases) were included. Mean age was 46.2 years (IQR, 39-52.7), and 79% were male. Median time of HIV was 201.7 months, CD4+ nadir was 268 cells/mm(3), and 75% had previous AIDS. At the diagnosis of neoplasia, 17 were on protease inhibitors and 4 with efavirenz. Ten patients had a non-HIV-related cancer (three breast, two pancreatic, one Ewing sarcoma, one myeloblastic leukemia, one melanoma, one parotid adenocarcinoma, one lung), and 18 had an HIV-related cancer (nine non-Hodgkin lymphoma, seven Hodgkin disease, two anal). Overall, 43% of patients received more than one line of chemotherapy, including antimetabolites in 12 patients (5-FU, capecitabine, methotrexate, gemcitabine), alkylating agents in 12 cases (ciclophosphamide, iphosphamide), vinca alkaloids in 20 patients (vincristine, vinblastine, vindesine), antitumor antibiotics in 16 cases (adriamycin), cisplatin o carboplatin in six and monoclonal antibodies in six patients (rituximab, trastuzumab, cetuximab). Six patients modified the doses of antineoplastic agents due to toxicity (four neutropenia), not related to raltegravir. During a median follow up of 12.7 patients-year in concomitant therapy, there was only 1 case of virological failure and no patient discontinued raltegravir. Plasma concentrations of raltegravir in eight patients showed a median concentration of 143 ng/mL (79-455). Four patients (14%) died during the study, not related to AIDS progression. Raltegravir was continued after chemotherapy in all the cases.

Breast enlargement was assessed in consecutively evaluated HIV-infected men, and gynecomastia was subsequently confirmed with sonography. For each patient with breast enlargement, a randomly selected control subject without breast enlargement was studied. Clinical data were obtained, including age, body mass index, clinically evident lipodystrophy, prior symptomatic hyperlactatemia, current antiretroviral therapy and duration of exposure to each antiretroviral drug, history of injection drug use, and serological status regarding hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Laboratory parameters, including plasma HIV-1 RNA load, CD4 cell count, free testosterone index, and levels of fasting triglycerides, cholesterol, prolactin, total testosterone, sex hormone-binding globulin, 17-beta-estradiol, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and thyroid-stimulating hormone, were measured.

The non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor efavirenz is a widely prescribed antiretroviral drug used in combined antiretroviral therapy. Despite being an essential and life-saving medication, the required lifelong use of HIV drugs has been associated with a variety of adverse effects, including disturbances in lipid metabolism and increased cardiovascular risk. Efavirenz belongs to those HIV drugs for which cardiovascular and endothelial dysfunctions have been reported. It is here shown that elevated concentrations of efavirenz can inhibit endothelial meshwork formation on extracellular matrix gels by normal and immortalized human umbilical vein cells. This inhibition was associated with an increase in oxidative stress markers, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress markers, and autophagy. Induction of ER stress occurred at pharmacologically relevant concentrations of efavirenz and resulted in reduced proliferation and cell viability of endothelial cells, which worsened in the presence of elevated efavirenz concentrations. In combination with the HIV protease inhibitor nelfinavir, both oxidative stress and ER stress became elevated in endothelial cells. These data indicate that pharmacologically relevant concentrations of efavirenz can impair cell viability of endothelial cells and that these effects may be aggravated by either elevated concentrations of efavirenz or by a combined use of efavirenz with other oxidative stress-inducing medications.

A total of 64 subjects (86% male, 66% white, mean [sd] CD4(+) T-cell count 537.3 [191.5]/mm(3)) were analysed. After adjustment for baseline 25(OH)D and demographics, at week 48 DRV/r monotherapy was associated with a +3.6 (95% CI 0.6, 6.6) ng/ml increase in 25(OH)D compared to TDF/FTC/EFV (P=0.02). DRV/r monotherapy was associated with an increase in BMD (+2.9% versus -0.003% at the neck of femur and +2.6% versus +0.008% at the lumbar spine for DRV/r versus TDF/FTC/EFV; P<0.05 for all) and reductions in bone biomarkers compared with those remaining on TDF/FTC/EFV. No significant difference in renal tubular function was observed. Reasons for discontinuation in the DRV/r arm included side effects (n=4) and viral load rebound (n=3), all of which resolved with DRV/r discontinuation or regimen intensification.

Previously, we observed that the oxazinone ring is important for cytochrome P450 2B6 (CYP2B6) activity toward efavirenz ((4S)-6-chloro-4-(2-cyclopropylethynyl)-1,4-dihydro-4-(trifluoromethyl)-2H-3,1-benzoxazin-2-one), a CYP2B6 substrate used to treat HIV. To further understand the structural characteristics of efavirenz that render it a CYP2B6 substrate, we tested the importance of each heteroatom of the oxazinone ring. We assembled a panel of five analogues: 6-chloro-4-(2-cyclopropylethynyl)-1,4-dihydro-2-methyl-4-(trifluoromethyl)-2H-3,1-benzoxazine (1), (4S)-6-chloro-4-[(1E)-2-cyclopropylethenyl]-3,4-dihydro-4-(trifluoromethyl)-2(1H)-quinazolinone (2), (4S)-6-chloro-4-(2-cyclopropylethynyl)-3,4-dihydro-4-(trifluoromethyl)-2(1H)-quinazolinone (3), 6-chloro-4-(cyclopropylethynyl)-3,4-dihydro-4-(trifluoromethyl)-2(1H)-quinolinone (4), and 6-chloro-4-(cyclopropylethynyl)-4-(trifluoromethyl)-4H-benzo[d][1,3]dioxin-2-one (5). The metabolism of compounds 1-5 was investigated using human liver microsomes, individual P450s, and mass spectrometry or UV/Vis absorbance detection. Steady-state analysis of CYP2B6 metabolism of 1-5 showed KM values ranging from 0.3- to 3.9-fold different from that observed for efavirenz (KM : 3.6±1.7 μm). The lowest KM values, approximating 1 μm, were observed for the metabolism of 1, whereas the greatest KM value, 14±6.4 μm, was found for 4. Our work reveals that analogues with heteroatom changes in the oxazinone ring are still CYP2B6 substrates, although the changes in KM suggest altered substrate binding.

PubMed, EMbase, Ovid, Web of Science, Science Direct, and related websites were screened from establishment until July 2013, and scientific meeting proceedings were manually searched. Two reviewers independently screened 118 citations repeatedly to identify randomized controlled trials comparing the efficacy and safety of DTG-based regimen with those of RAL- or elvitegravir-based regimens. Using the selected studies with comparable outcome measures and indications, we performed a meta-analysis based on modified intention-to-treat (mITT), on-treatment (OT), and as-treated (AT) virological outcome data. Independent data extraction and quality assessment were conducted.

Compounds that can block the CXCR4 chemokine receptor are a promising new class of antiretroviral agents. In these experiments we studied the effect of a modified form of the native stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1), Met-SDF-1beta. The in vitro susceptibility of two different CXCR4-tropic HIV-1 strains was determined. Antiviral effect was assessed by the reduction of p24 antigen production in PHA-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells with exposure to the modified SDF-1 molecule. The 50% inhibitory concentrations (IC50) were derived from six separate experiments. The IC50 against the two HIV-1 isolates was in 1.0-2.8 microg/ml range for Met-SDF-1beta. Met-SDF-1beta showed synergy to additivity with either zidovudine or nelfinavir at IC75 IC90 and IC95. Additivity was seen when Met-SDF-1beta was combined with efavirenz. No cellular toxicity was observed at the highest concentrations when these agents were used either singly or in combination. This compound is a promising new candidate in a receptor-based approach to HIV-1 infection in conjunction with currently available combination antiretroviral drug therapies.

The efavirenz, a non nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor of HIV-1, presents a marked pharmacokinetics variability related to an intense hepatic metabolism. Efavirenz is also a potent inducer. Central nervous system (CNS) toxicity associated with efavirenz therapy is a major cause of non adherence and therefore treatment failure. The literature has been analyzed to evaluate the level of evidence of the interest of a therapeutic drug monitoring for efavirenz. Several studies have reported that an efavirenz plasma concentration >1 000 ng/mL is a predictive factor of the viral response. Efavirenz plasma concentrations >4 000 ng/mL were associated to an increase frequency of CNS side effects. CNS toxicity was also more frequent in patients carrying the 516G > T mutation (CYP2B6*6 allele), associated with a significantly greater efavirenz plasma exposure. Non-randomized studies have reported the interest of efavirenz therapeutic drug monitoring to optimize viral response and prevent CNS toxicity, allowing to suggest a level of evidence "recommended" for efavirenz.

Nevirapine used in single doses to prevent mother-to-child transmission has been shown to be associated with the development of transient resistant mutations. Here we describe the presence of V106M in seven out of 141 South African women (5%) 6 weeks after receiving nevirapine. V106M is a novel resistance mutation found in subtype C viruses exposed to efavirenz. This mutation is thus also induced at a low frequency in subtype C viruses exposed to single dose nevirapine.

In the on-treatment (OT) population, 73% (38/52) and 93% (54/58) of patients in the saquinavir-SGC/ritonavir and efavirenz groups, respectively, had effective viral suppression < 50 copies/mL (P = .5015, 95% 1-sided CI = -33.4%). Mean CD4+ cell counts increased by 239 and 204 cells/microliters (mcL), in the saquinavir-SGC/ritonavir and efavirenz groups, respectively, in the OT analysis (P = .058). Both regimens were reasonably well tolerated, although more gastrointestinal adverse events were reported with saquinavir-SGC/ritonavir. Pharmacokinetic profiles in 6 patients showed an observed median Cmin at 24 hours of 429 ng/mL (range, 68-1750 ng/mL).

Passage in MT-2 cells resulted in accumulation of three substitutions in RT (V179D, L1001, Y181C) after 24 passages associated with 1000-fold reduced susceptibility to DMP 266. In PBMC cultures treated with 0.96 microM DMP 266, virus replication was completely suppressed after 2 weeks; no regrowth occurred in the presence of compound after 10 weeks or in the absence of compound for 3 additional weeks. The 0.096 microM treated cultures had an initial 2.5-log reduction in infectious virus titre followed Flomax Maximum Dose by rapid regrowth. Virus obtained at week 6 displayed a 28-fold reduction in susceptibility with an L1001 substitution in RT, and by week 11 displayed a 1000-fold reduction in susceptibility with an additional V1081 substitution.

The aim of our study was to analyse retrospectively the nature and frequency of antiretroviral prescriptions for 990 HIV-infected patients followed at our outpatient centre in Bologna, Italy, from January 2003 to March 2004. The main focus of the study was to identify the most commonly prescribed combinations and their related expenses, in order to identify the most competitive treatment regimens with regard to costs. Prescriptions were given directly to patients at monthly intervals, and drug treatment adherence data was stored in an electronic database Trandate Reviews . Antiretroviral regimens administered for the longest period to each patient during the 15 months of the study were selected for the study. All patients treated for <9 consecutive months and/or with treatment adherence levels <90% were excluded. Physicians assessed antiretroviral therapy at least quarterly according to efficacy and safety criteria, but not in terms of pharmacoeconomic considerations. Direct pharmacy expenses were obtained for the 24 most commonly used therapeutic regimens, covering 80.1% of patients.

The most common reverse transcriptase mutation was M184V/I (72%; n = 163); 11% of patients (n = 25) had only nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) mutations and 17% (n = 38) had no known resistance mutations. The K65R mutation was detected in 4%. The frequency of thymidine analog mutations was significantly higher with azidothymidine-containing (31 of 57) than stavudine-containing regimens (39 of 169; P < 0.001). The Y181C mutation was more frequent with failure of nevirapine (NVP)-containing (26%) than efavirenz (EFV)-containing therapy (3%; P < 0.001). The V106M mutation was more frequent with EFV (30%) than NVP (4%; P = 0.012).

Resistance to antivirals is a complex and dynamic phenomenon that involves more mutations than are currently known. Here, we characterize 10 additional mutations (L74V, K101Q, I135M/T, V179I, H221Y, K223E/Q, and L228H/R) in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) reverse transcriptase which are involved in the regulation of resistance to nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs). These mutations are strongly associated with NNRTI failure and strongly correlate with the classical NNRTI resistance mutations in a data set of 1,904 HIV-1 B-subtype pol sequences from 758 drug-naïve patients, 592 nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI)-treated but NNRTI-naïve patients, and 554 patients treated with both NRTIs and NNRTIs. In particular, L74V and H221Y, positively correlated with Y181C, were associated with an increase in Y181C-mediated resistance to nevirapine, while I135M/T mutations, positively correlated with K103N, were associated with an increase in K103N-mediated resistance to efavirenz. In addition, the presence of the I135T polymorphism in NNRTI-naïve patients significantly correlated with the appearance of K103N in cases of NNRTI failure, suggesting that I135T may represent a crucial determinant of NNRTI resistance evolution. Molecular dynamics simulations show that I135T can contribute to the stabilization of the K103N-induced closure of the NNRTI binding pocket by reducing the distance and increasing the number of hydrogen bonds between 103N and 188Y. H221Y also showed negative correlations with type 2 thymidine analogue mutations (TAM2s); its copresence with the TAM2s was associated with a higher level of zidovudine susceptibility. Our study reinforces the complexity of NNRTI resistance and the significant interplay between NRTI- and NNRTI-selected mutations. Mutations beyond those currently known to confer resistance should be considered for a better prediction of clinical response to reverse transcriptase inhibitors and for the development of more efficient new-generation NNRTIs.

We evaluated growth indices in two cohorts of Malawian infants exposed to tenofovir, lamivudine and efavirenz in utero and during 12 months of breastfeeding, and to stavudine/zidovudine, lamivudine and nevirapine in utero and during 6 months of breastfeeding. Growth indices were similar in the two cohorts at one and 6 months but were significantly better in the first group at 12 months, suggesting no negative effect of tenofovir and a significant benefit of extended breastfeeding.
