There are 4 clinical trials
For patients who are starting to take antiretroviral medication (to treat HIV) for the first time, there are now a variety of different medicines which may be taken together as a combination in order to form an effective treatment which suppresses the virus for prolonged periods of time. Currently, national guidelines recommend the use of two different drugs of one type (the nucleoside/ nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors, NRTI often known as "nukes") with a third drug from one of two other types (either a nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor, known as an NNRTI or "nonnuke", or a protease inhibitor, known as a PI) to form a treatment regime of three active drugs. In the UK and Europe, all PIs are given in combination with a small dose of a second PI, ritonavir, which has the effect of boosting the levels of the active PI in the bloodstream. The investigators know from both research studies and patient experience in clinic that a combination of a ritonavirboosted PI with an NNRTI achieves similar results in suppressing the HIV virus, compared to the use of either a PI or NNRTI with 2 NRTI as described above. In this study, the investigators will observe the combination of two licensed antiretroviral medications, ritonavirboosted darunavir(DRV/r) and rilpivirine (RPV), in suppressing virus when given to patients who are commencing treatment for HIV infection for the first time. Both of these drugs are licensed for treatment of patients with HIV in the UK and Europe, and are currently in standard clinical use. The study will monitor this treatment over the first 48 weeks. The investigators will also examine the levels of both drugs in the bloodstream during the first 4 weeks of starting this regimen, to confirm that they remain at levels which the investigators know to be effective against the virus.

Current HIV treatment guidelines recommend the use of triple-drug therapy (two nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors and either a protease inhibitor, non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor, or an integrase inhibitor) for the treatment of antiretroviral (ARV)-naïve patients. With the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), patients with HIV are living much longer. With the increasing lifespan of persons with HIV, long-term complications from therapy as well as the occurrence of co-morbidities with aging have prompted HCPs to re-think the current treatment paradigm and consider novel combinations of ARVs. All of the currently approved HIV antiretrovirals have been implicated in causing long-term toxicities; however the greatest body of evidence for long-term metabolic effects has implicated the nucleoside reverse transcriptase (NRTI) class. By utilizing a non-NRTI treatment regimen, it is hypothesized that many of these long-term metabolic effects (renal toxicity, bone loss, body fat changes) can be delayed or avoided altogether. The clinical data on novel combinations is currently limited but rapidly growing and has included several combinations that have utilized darunavir. This study will be the first of its kind using the unique combination of darunavir/cobicistat and rilpivirine. Currently, this drug combination is not a recommended option for first time treatment of HIV

The objective of antiretroviral therapy (ART) is the maintenance of HIV viral suppression, the optimal condition to prevent disease progression, to optimize immune restoration, to prevent the development of viral resistance and to reduce viral transmission. Antiretroviral therapy has to be maintained long life over decades in the absence of strategies for HIV cure. This is why the long-term cumulative toxicity of ARV drugs is a major issue. Indeed as a consequence of potent ART strategies, in 2011 over 88% of patients on ART in the French Hospital database (ANRS CO4 FHDH) achieved viral suppression with HIV-RNA plasma viral load < 50 copies/mL and nearly 60% had CD4 > 500/mm3. As a consequence of massive reduction of mortality and morbidity related to HIV, infected patients are aging with 40% of patients over 50 years of age in the ANRS CO4 FHDH. The current standard-of-care for antiretroviral therapy consists in a triple drug combination with two nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) plus either a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI), a protease inhibitor (PI), or an integrase inhibitor (INSTI). NRTIs and PIs have been associated to cumulative long-term toxicity such as bone and renal disorders related to tenofovir and increased cardio-vascular risk with PIs. In general population, aging is associated with well-known comorbidities such as bone demineralization, increased incidence of cardio or cerebrovascular disease, diabetes, renal dysfunction. HIV infected patients are at a greater risk for such abnormalities. Another crucial concern is the high probability of drug-drug interactions in HIV-infected patients, between ART and comedications. Alternative strategies are needed, which must address the following questions: how to maintain the control of HIV viral replication while minimizing the occurrence of long-term clinical and metabolic complications, and minimizing the risk of drug-drug interactions? This study is an open label, randomized, switch study over 96 weeks in which virally suppressed patients on a stable combined ART regimen will be randomized (2:1) to an immediate switch to doravirine/raltegravir (immediate switch group) or to the maintaining of their current ART followed by a switch to doravirine/raltegravir at W48 (delayed switch group). Patients will be followed during 96 weeks.
