Abstract

We describe five patients with HIV-2 infection (four antiretroviral-experienced and one antiretroviral-naive) treated with a regimen containing raltegravir. All responded to treatment as demonstrated by viral load and CD4+ T-cell count monitoring. Our series confirms the clinical effectiveness of raltegravir in HIV-2-infected patients when given with other antiretrovirals to which the virus is susceptible.
