Quick update on a presentation by John McAllister

 

  • if source VL is undetectable, then PEP is no longer recommended
    • however, do need to discuss the reliability of the history of undetectable VL
  • Truvada should be used for PEP
    • avoid tenofovir and lamivudine (although cheaper)
  • 3-drug PEP
    • if 3 drugs are needed, then stick with dolutegravir (ALT increases by 22%), raltegravir or rilpiravine
