Antivirals for systemic use
Telzir in combination with low-dose ritonavir is indicated for the treatment of human-immunodeficiency-virus-type-1-infected adults, adolescents and children of six years and above in combination with other antiretroviral medicinal products.
In moderately antiretroviral-experienced adults, Telzir in combination with low-dose ritonavir has not been shown to be as effective as lopinavir / ritonavir. No comparative studies have been undertaken in children or adolescents.
In heavily pretreated patients, the use of Telzir in combination with low-dose ritonavir has not been sufficiently studied.
In protease-inhibitor-experienced patients, the choice of Telzir should be based on individual viral resistance testing and treatment history.
