Dolutegravir (HIV) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022 - GlobalData has released its new PharmaPoint Drug Evaluation report, "Dolutegravir (HIV) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022". Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), the causative agent of AIDS, has claimed millions of lives since its emergence. However, the advent of antiretroviral therapy (ART) has transformed the face of HIV/AIDS from a deadly disease to a manageable chronic condition for most infected individuals. Antiretroviral treatment not only reduces the viral load and reconstitutes immune function, but also decreases infection incidence rates by limiting viral transmission. The treatment algorithm in HIV has characteristically involved multiple drug regimens designed to tackle the virus on different levels. In the recent past, simplified dosing regimens through
the emergence of single tablet regimens (STRs) or fixed dose combination (FDC) therapies have become increasingly popular amongst physicians and patients alike by increasing clinical efficacy thresholds and enabling patient compliance.
Dolutegravir (S/GSK1349572) is an integrase inhibitor currently in development by ViiV. This INIs mechanism of action involves inhibiting the catalytic activity of HIV integrase, an enzyme that is required for viral replication, which blocks HIV from integrating its DNA into the host cell genome. This prevents HIV from replicating and propagating (Isentress Highlights of Prescribing Information, 2012). INIs are an attractive antiretroviral class due to their side effect profiles being more tolerable than PI-based regimens. Dolutegravir is currently being tested for use in combination with other antiretroviral agents of the NRTI class. It is designed to maintain activity against raltegravir- and elvitegravir-resistant HIV (Min et al., 2010). Dolutegravir is presently being evaluated for safety and efficacy without an additional pharmacokinetic enhancer to boost activity. Un-boosted dolutegravir would likely have fewer side effects than PK-boosted dolutegravir, since pharmacokinetic boosters are associated with deleterious drug-drug interactions and gastrointestinal issues (Norvir Highlights of Prescribing Information, 2012). There are currently four ongoing Phase III clinical trials by ViiV healthcare examining the safety and efficacy of dolutegravir as a first-line treatment in treatment-naÃ¯ve patients, as well as for the treatment of ART-experienced patients. Dolutegravir is expected to launch in 2013 and will be a useful addition for patients who have developed resistance to Mercks Isentress, which has been the only treatment in the market since 2007, and was initially launched as a second-line therapy for treatment-experienced patients.
