Boosted protease inhibitors (PIs) offer a potential low-cost and practical alternative as second-line therapy in HIV. Two articles published in Antiviral Therapy explore lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) monotherapy following initial treatment failure. Bunupuradah et al. found a lower proportion of patients achieved undetectable HIV RNA with LPV/r compared with those on a TDF-containing regimen. Similarly, Gilks et al. report higher rates of low-level viraemia with LPV/r versus combination therapy, despite comparable CD4+ T-cell response between groups. Non-inferiority of PI monotherapy could not be demonstrated against standard combination treatment. Until further research is conducted, the authors recommend against PI monotherapy as second-line.
