Sustiva is used to treat HIV infection in combination with other anti-HIV medications. If Sustiva is the only drug you take to treat HIV infection, it may stop working.

Sustiva is an oral medication that is used for the treatment of infections with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It is similar to nevirapine (Viramune) and delavirdine (Rescriptor).

Sustiva is also known as Efavirenz, Stocrin.

Sustiva is in a class of drugs called reverse transcriptase inhibitors which also includes zalcitabine (Hivid), zidovudine (Retrovir), didanosine (Videx), and lamivudine (Epivir). During infection with HIV, the HIV virus multiplies within the body's cells. The newly-formed viruses then are released from the cells and spread throughout the body where they infect other cells. In this manner, the infection continually spreads to new, uninfected cells that the body is continually producing, and HIV infection is perpetuated. When producing new viruses, the HIV virus must manufacture new DNA for each virus. Reverse transcriptase is the enzyme that the virus uses to form this new DNA. Sustiva directly inhibits the activity of reverse transcriptase and blocks the production of DNA and new viruses. Unlike zidovudine, efavirenz does not need to be converted to an active form. Sustiva does not kill existing HIV virus and it is not a cure for HIV.


Take this drug by mouth, generally once daily as directed. Take on an empty stomach with a glass of water. Taking Sustiva with food, especially a high-fat meal can lead to increased blood levels of the drug and increase your risk of having side effects.

Best taken at bedtime during the first month of use. Using this drug regularly at bedtime may decrease certain side effects. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. Do not take more or less of this drug than prescribed, or stop taking it unless directed to do so by your doctor. Read the patient information leaflet provided by your pharmacist.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Sustiva suddenly.


If you overdose Sustiva and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.


Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Bedaquiline has recently been approved for the treatment of pulmonary multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) as part of combination therapy in adults. It is metabolized primarily by the cytochrome P450 isoenzyme 3A4 (CYP3A4) to a less-active N-monodesmethyl metabolite. Phase I and Phase II studies in healthy subjects and patients with drug-susceptible or multidrug-resistant TB have assessed the pharmacokinetics and drug-drug interaction profile of bedaquiline. Potential interactions have been assessed between bedaquiline and first- and second-line anti-TB drugs (rifampicin, rifapentine, isoniazid, pyrazinamide, ethambutol, kanamycin, ofloxacin and cycloserine), commonly used antiretroviral agents (lopinavir/ritonavir, nevirapine and efavirenz) and a potent CYP3A inhibitor (ketoconazole). This review summarizes the pharmacokinetic profile of bedaquiline as well as the results of the drug-drug interaction studies.

The mean age of the patients was 7.7 years (range, 2.1-13.8 years). At baseline, the median CD4 cell percentage was 3%, and the plasma HIV RNA level was 5.4 log10 copies/mL. Four patients died from HIV-related illness. After 72 weeks of HAART, the median CD4 cell percentage was 21%, and 76% of patients had HIV RNA levels of < 50 copies/mL. The mean weight-for-age and height-for-age z scores increased from -1.9 to -1.3 (P < .0001) and from -2.3 to -2.0 (P < .0001), respectively. The percentage of patients who took > or = 95% of prescribed medications during the interval between every follow-up visit was 86% For patients with suboptimal virological response, the most common resistance mutations among HIV isolates were associated with lamivudine and with nonnucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitors.

Ex vivo analysis showed full-length HIV DNA declines were similar across all groups (CVC 100 mg, CVC 200 mg and EFV) at Week 24. Strong-stop HIV DNA declines (a marker of HIV entry) at Week 24 were pronounced for both CVC arms (CVC 100 mg, 51% decline; CVC 200 mg, 37% decline) compared to no decline for the EFV arm. In vitro experiments revealed that CVC-treated cells had lower levels of supernatant P24 at 4 hours versus baseline (0 hrs: 506 ng/mL; 4 hrs: 192 ng/mL), but P24 levels remained constant for MVC-treated cells after 4 hours (0 hrs: 506 ng/mL; 4 hrs: 520 ng/mL). Viral load levels for CVC-treated cells remained stable after 4 hours (0 hrs: 1.19×10(10) copies/mL; 4 hrs: 1.26×10(10) copies/mL). MVC-treated cells exhibited a slight increase in viral load after 4 hours (0 hrs: 1.19×10(10) copies/mL; 4 hrs: 1.67×10(10) copies/mL).

Overall, the agreement was high, with each ARV being in "almost perfect agreement", using Landis and Koch's categorisation. Highest discordance was observed for efavirenz (75/1301, 5.8%), all arising from susceptible Stanford HIVdb versus non-susceptible vircoTYPE™ HIV-1 predictions. Protease Inhibitors had highest level of concordance with PABAKs all above 0.99, followed by Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors with PABAKs above 0.97 and non-NRTIs with the lowest PABAK of 0.88. The 68/75 patients with discordant efavirenz results harboured the V179D/E mutations compared to 7/1226 with no efavirenz discrepancy (p-value <0.001). In the 3-level comparison, all but one of the discrepancies was minor.

We aimed in this study to describe efavirenz concentration-time courses in treatment-naïve children after once-daily administration to study the effects of age and body weight on efavirenz pharmacokinetics and to test relationships between doses, plasma concentrations, and efficacy. For this purpose, efavirenz concentrations in 48 children were measured after 2 weeks of didanosine-lamivudine-efavirenz treatment, and samples were available for 9/48 children between months 2 and 5 of treatment. Efavirenz concentrations in 200 plasma specimens were measured using a validated high-performance liquid chromatography method. A population pharmacokinetic model was developed with NONMEM. The influence of individual characteristics was tested using a likelihood ratio test. The estimated minimal and maximal concentrations of efavirenz in plasma (Cmin and Cmax, respectively) and the area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) were correlated to the decrease in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 RNA levels after 3 months of treatment. The threshold Cmin (and AUC) that improved efficacy was determined. The target minimal concentration of 4 mg/liter was considered for toxicity. An optimized dosing schedule that would place the highest percentage of children in the interval of effective and nontoxic concentrations was simulated. The pharmacokinetics of efavirenz was best described by a one-compartment model with first-order absorption and elimination. The mean apparent clearance and volume of distribution for efavirenz were 0.211 liter/h/kg and 4.48 liters/kg, respectively. Clearance decreased significantly with age. When the recommended doses were given to 46 of the 48 children, 19% (44% of children weighing less than 15 kg) had C(min)s below 1 mg/liter. A significantly higher percentage of children with C(min)s of >1.1 mg/liter or AUCs of >51 mg/liter x h than of children with lower values had viral load decreases greater than 2 log10 copies/ml after 3 months of treatment. Therefore, to optimize the percentage of children with C(min)s between 1.1 and 4 mg/liter, children should receive the following once-daily efavirenz doses: 25 mg/kg of body weight from 2 to 6 years, 15 mg/kg from 6 to 10 years, and 10 mg/kg from 10 to 15 years. These assumptions should be prospectively confirmed.

From January 2003 until May 2009, 37 individuals on EFV (28 suppressed and 9 not suppressed) and 69 on LPV/r (38 suppressed and 31 not suppressed) were eligible. The poor adherence period was a median of 32 weeks with 18.9% of EFV and 20.3% of LPV/r patients reporting missed doses on a daily basis. The tested SNPs were not determinant for viral suppression. Reporting missing >1 dose/week was associated with a lower probability of viral suppression compared to missing 1 dose/week (EFV: odds ratio (OR) 0.11, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.01-0.99; LPV/r: OR 0.29, 95% CI: 0.09-0.94). In both groups, the probability of remaining suppressed increased with the duration of continuous suppression prior to the poor adherence period (EFV: OR 3.40, 95% CI: 0.62-18.75; LPV/r: OR 5.65, 95% CI: 1.82-17.56).

One hundred and eighty-six patients were included in the final analysis, 122 (65.6%) from eight cohorts and 64 (34.1%) from four randomized clinical trials. The overall proportion of patients with at least one DRM at viral failure was 67.7%, including 53.4% (31 of 58) in the STR group vs. 74.2% (95 of 128) in the non-STR group (P = 0.005). Among patients exclusively from cohorts, at least one DRM was detected in 53.4% (31 of 58) in the STR group vs. 78.1% (50 of 64) in the non-STR group (P = 0.004). DRMs for individual drugs were: TDF, 15.5 vs. 16.4% (P = 0.87); 3TC/FTC, 31 vs. 35.2% (P = 0.58); and NNRTI, 51.7 vs. 65.6% (P = 0.07).

Currently used hepatocyte cell systems for in vitro assessment of drug metabolism include hepatoma cell lines and primary human hepatocyte (PHH) cultures. We investigated the suitability of the validated in vivo Basel phenotyping cocktail (caffeine [CYP1A2], efavirenz [CYP2B6], losartan [CYP2C9], omeprazole [CYP2C19], metoprolol [CYP2D6], midazolam [CYP3A4]) in vitro and characterized four hepatocyte cell systems (HepG2 cells, HepaRG cells, and primary cryopreserved human hepatocytes in 2-dimensional [2D] culture or in 3D-spheroid co-culture) regarding basal metabolism and CYP inducibility. Under non-induced conditions, all CYP activities could be determined in 3D-PHH, CYP2B6, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, and CYP3A4 in 2D-PHH and HepaRG, and CYP2C19 and CYP3A4 in HepG2 cells. The highest non-induced CYP activities were observed in 3D-PHH and HepaRG cells. mRNA expression was at least four-fold higher for all CYPs in 3D-PHH compared to the other cell systems. After treatment with 20 μM rifampicin, mRNA increased 3- to 50-fold for all CYPs except CYP1A2 and 2D6 for HepaRG and 3D-PHH, 4-fold (CYP2B6) and 17-fold (CYP3A4) for 2D-PHH and four-fold (CYP3A4) for HepG2. In 3D-PHH at least a two-fold increase in CYP activity was observed for all inducible CYP isoforms while CYP1A2 and CYP2C9 activity did not increase in 2D-PHH and HepaRG. CYP inducibility assessed in vivo using the same phenotyping probes was also best reflected by the 3D-PHH model. Our studies show that 3D-PHH and (with some limitations) HepaRG are suitable cell systems for assessing drug metabolism and CYP induction in vitro. HepG2 cells are less suited to assess CYP induction of the 2C and 3A family. The Basel phenotyping cocktail is suitable for the assessment of CYP activity and induction also in vitro.

Median (interquartile range) CD4 cell counts at baseline were 150 (80-200), 170 (80-220), and 150 (90-216) per microlitre, respectively. At week 48 the proportion (95% confidence interval (CI)) of patients achieving HIV-1 RNA < 50 copies/ml was 86 (78-94)% in the EFV arm, 78 (69-87)% in the AZV/r arm and, 69 (59-78)% in the LPV/r arm in the intention-to-treat analysis. There was a significant difference between the EFV and LPV/r arm (p = 0.014). At week 144, the proportion (95% CI) of patients achieving HIV-1 RNA < 50 copies/ml was 61 (50-72)%, 58 (47-69)%, 51 (41-63)%, respectively (p = 0.8). Patients with CD4 cell counts of ≤ 200/μl or HIV-1 RNA > 100,000 copies/ml at baseline had similar response rates in all arms.

The reduction of neutrophils apoptosis is one of the main non-virological effects of protease inhibitor (PI) therapy. We explore here whether this may be due to the cross-inhibition of calpain, an important non-virological target of PI in vitro. We found that the high basal level of neutrophils apoptosis in AIDS patients is strictly related to an increased intracellular calpain activity. Both alterations disappear after PI treatment, with apoptosis and calpain going back to normal levels after 3 months of PI therapy, independently of a proficient antiviral effect. PI drugs exerted a similar antiapoptotic and anticalpain effects on neutrophils in ex vivo experiments: strikingly, the effects were mimicked by commercially available calpain inhibitors. This study shows, for the first time, that apoptosis of neutrophils in AIDS patients is mediated by calpain, and that neutrophil survival in PI treated AIDS patients is a non virological effect due to calpain inhibition.

We present a systematic, computational analysis of the electrostatic component of binding of three HIV-1 RT inhibitors-nevirapine (NVP), efavirenz (EFV), and the recently approved rilpivirine (RPV)-to wild-type (WT) and mutant variants of RT. Electrostatic charge optimization was applied to determine how suited each molecule's charge distribution is for binding WT and individual mutants of HIV-1 RT. Although the charge distributions of NVP and EFV are rather far from being optimal for tight binding, RPVs charge distribution is close to the theoretical, optimal charge distribution for binding WT HIV-1 RT, although slight changes in charge can dramatically impact binding energetics. Moreover, toward the L100I/K103N double mutant, RPVs charge distribution is quite far from optimal. We also determine the contributions of chemical moieties on each molecule toward the electrostatic component of binding and show that different regions of a drug molecule may be used for recognition by different RT variants. The electrostatic contributions of certain RT residues toward drug binding are also computed to highlight critical residues for each interaction. Finally, the charge distribution of RPV is optimized to promiscuously bind to three RT variants rather than to each one in turn, with the resulting charge distribution being a compromise between the optimal charge distributions to each individual variant. Taken together, this work demonstrates that even in a binding site considered quite hydrophobic, electrostatics play a subtle yet varying role that must be considered in designing next-generation molecules that recognize rapidly mutating targets.

Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) isolates derived from HIV-infected, treatment-naive Ugandan infants were propagated and tested for sensitivity to antiretroviral (ARV) drugs. Although most subtype A and D isolates displayed inhibition profiles similar to those of subtype B strains, a subtype D isolate identified as D14-UG displayed high-level resistance to nevirapine in peripheral blood mononuclear cell cultures (>2,000-fold) and in MT4 cell cultures ( approximately 800-fold) but weaker resistance to delavirdine ( approximately 13-fold) and efavirenz ( approximately 8-fold) in MT4 cell cultures. To investigate the possible mechanism for this resistance to nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase (RT) inhibitors (NNRTIs), the RT coding region in pol was sequenced and compared to the consensus RT sequence of NNRTI-resistant and NNRTI-sensitive subtype A, B, and D HIV-1 isolates. D14-UG did not contain the classic amino acid substitutions conferring NNRTI resistance (e.g., Y181C, K103N, and G190A) but did have some putative sites associated with drug resistance, I135L, T139V, and V245T. Wild-type and mutated protease-RT genes from D14-UG and an NNRTI-sensitive subtype D isolate from Uganda (D13-UG) were cloned into pNL4-3 to produce recombinant viruses and to determine the effects of the mutations on susceptibility to ARV drugs, specifically, NNRTIs. The results showed that I135L and/or V245T mutations can confer high-level resistance to nevirapine and delavirdine as well as low level cross-resistance to efavirenz. Finally, ex vivo fitness analyses suggested that NNRTI-resistant sites 135L and 245T in wild-type isolate D14-UG may reduce RT fitness but do not have an impact on the fitness of the primary HIV-1 isolate.

A high-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS) method with ionization polarity switch was developed and validated in human serum for the determination of a lamivudine (3TC)/stavudine (d4T)/efavirenz combination HIV therapy. Solid phase extraction (SPE) was used to extract these anti-HIV drugs and internal standard aprobarbital. A gradient mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile and 20 mM ammonium acetate buffer with pH adjusted to 4.5 using glacial acetic acid was utilized to separate these buy sustiva drugs on a hexylsilane column (150 x 2.0 mm i.d.). The total run time between injections was 18 min. The precursor and major product ions of these drugs were monitored on a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer in the multiple reactions monitoring (MRM) mode. Ionization polarity was switched in the middle of the LC run allowing these anti-HIV drugs with different physicochemical properties to be detected simultaneously. The effect of ion suppression from human serum was studied and no interference with the analysis was noted. The method was validated over the range of 1.1-540 ng/mL for 3TC, 12.5-6228 ng/mL for d4T and 1.0-519 ng/mL for efavirenz. The method was shown to be accurate, with intra-day and inter-day accuracy less than 14.0% and precise, with intra-day and inter-day precision less than 13.1%. The extraction recoveries of all analytes were higher than 90%.

The use of rifamycins is limited by drug interactions in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected persons who are receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). During a tuberculosis (TB) outbreak at a prison housing HIV-infected inmates, rifabutin was used to treat 238 men (13 case patients and 225 contacts). Steady-state peak plasma rifabutin concentrations were obtained after rifabutin dosages were adjusted for men receiving single-interacting HAART (with either 1 protease inhibitor [PI] or efavirenz), multi-interacting HAART (with either 2 PIs or > or =1 PI with efavirenz), and for noninteracting HAART (>1 nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitor or no HAART) without rifabutin dose adjustments. Low rifabutin concentrations occurred in 9% of those receiving noninteracting HAART, compared with 19% of those receiving single-interacting and 29% of those receiving multi-interacting HAART (chi2, 3.76; P=.05). Of 225 contacts treated with rifabutin-pyrazinamide, 158 (70%) completed treatment while incarcerated.

A randomized, open-label, multicenter study was conducted to evaluate the therapeutic switch to a single-tablet formulation of efavirenz/emtricitabine/tenofovir DF (EFV/FTC/TDF) among virologically suppressed, HIV-1-infected subjects. Eligible subjects on stable antiretroviral therapy (ART) with HIV-1 RNA less than 200 copies per milliliter for 3 months or more were stratified by prior protease inhibitor (PI)- or non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI)-based therapy and randomized (2:1) to EFV/FTC/TDF or to stay on their baseline regimen (SBR). Patient-reported measures were quality of life (QOL; SF-36 [version 2]), treatment adherence (visual analogue scale), preference of medication (POM), perceived ease of the regimen for condition (PERC), and a 20-item HIV symptom index. Overall, 203 subjects were randomized to EFV/FTC/TDF and 97 to SBR. Fifty-three percent of subjects had previously received a PI-based regimen; 47% an NNRTI-based therapy. Throughout the study, SF-36 summary scores did not differ significantly from baseline, regardless of previous ART or treatment allocation. Adherence was 96% or more in both groups at baseline and all subsequent study visits. At study conclusion, the EFV/FTC/TDF regimen was considered easier to follow than prior regimens by 97% and 96% of subjects previously receiving PI-based and NNRTI-based therapies, respectively. Overall, 91% of subjects switched to EFV/FTC/TDF indicated a preference over their prior therapy. Switching to EFV/FTC/TDF was associated with transient worsening/emergence of dizziness and sustained improvements in several other HIV-related symptoms. In conclusion, switching virologically suppressed, HIV-1-infected subjects from PI-based or NNRTI-based regimens to EFV/FTC/TDF was associated with maintained QOL and treatment adherence, and improved ease of use and treatment satisfaction.

Convenient, non-food-dependent dosing, low tablet volume, and relatively low cost have made nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors a first choice for both clinicians and patients in Uganda. Concerns exist as to their efficacy in patients with viral loads (VL) above 100,000 copies/ml, a feature common to about 75% of HIV-1-infected patients presenting at the Joint Clinical Research Center (JCRC) in Uganda. Furthermore, there are few data on the response to such therapy of non-B subtypes, A and D, predominant in Uganda. Presented here is a retrospective analysis of therapeutic responses in 11 antiretroviral (ARV) naïve HIV-1-infected Ugandan patients who had been initiated on zidovudine (AZT), lamivudine (3TC), and efavirenz (EFV). Laboratory assessments subsequent to initiation of ARV therapy, done at 11.6 +/- 3.9 weeks and 30.6 +/- 5.9 weeks, showed 88.9 and 71.4% patients achieved undetectable viral load, respectively. Virological suppression to below detection occurred in 85.7% of patients at 11.6 weeks despite baseline VL >or= 100,000 copies/ml. At 31 weeks there was a median increment of +183 cells/mm(3) in CD4(+) T lymphocytes. These findings reflect significant efficacy in the use of AZT + 3TC + EFV in advanced ARV naive non-B subtype HIV-1-infected patients. The therapeutic responses were comparable to those previously described in the western world.

Phenotyping of cytochrome P450 isoenzymes is used for metabolic profiling. Phenotyping cocktails are usually administered as individual marketed products, which are not designed for diagnostic applications. Therefore, a formulation strategy was developed, which can be applied to any phenotyping cocktail. The formulation was validated in vitro and in vivo in human volunteers using caffeine, efavirenz, flurbiprofen, metoprolol, midazolam, and omeprazole (Basel Cocktail). Spray dried di-calcium phosphate particles (Fujicalin) were used as an inert drug carrier for probe drugs. All drugs were successfully loaded into Fujicalin by a solvent evaporation method. Mini-tablets were produced and demonstrated good physical characteristics, expected drug content and immediate release profiles for all drug formulations. Mini-tablets were introduced into a capsule (CombiCap) and used for a pilot study in human volunteers. Plasma samples were collected and analyzed by liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. Plasma concentration ratios between the parent drugs and the respective metabolites were equivalent for the novel CombiCap formulation and individually dosed Basel Cocktail drugs. We conclude that the CombiCap formulation platform can be easily adopted for different types of phenotyping cocktails due to its scalable and modular design, which allows a simple and convenient combination of variable doses of different probe drugs.
