Aluvia: Opinion on medicine for use outside EU

lopinavir / ritonavir

Opinion on medicine for use outside the European Union
Positive opinion


Aluvia is an antiviral medicine. It is used together with other antiviral medicines to treat patients over two years of age who are infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), a virus that causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Aluvia is identical to a medicine already authorised in the European Union (EU) called Kaletra tablets, except for the appearance of the tablets. It has been developed in the context of co-operation with the World Health Organization (WHO) because it can be used against a WHO target disease (HIV/AIDS). It is to be used exclusively in markets outside the EU.

The medicine can only be obtained with a prescription.
