Vulnerable populations: Too little, too late or new opportunity? Prof. Christine Katlama Mark Wainberg, PhD Réjean Thomas, MD Prof. Gilles Pialoux
Cobicistat – A new pharmaco-enhancer or booster alternative to ritonavir ATZ/r vs. ATZ/cobicistat 1 – Proven virological non-inferiority – Incidence of most common adverse events (AEs) similar between arms – Discontinuation rates due to AEs low and similar between arms – Grade 3/4 hyperbilirubinemia, increase in serum creatinine, and decrease in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) significantly greater with cobicistat vs. ritonavir, but this difference did not lead to higher discontinuation rates due to bilirubin-related or renal AEs New molecules
CD 4 > 350 and > 500 9,10 –20% of patients treated at the LActuel medical clinic have CD4 > 500 (R. Thomas) The new therapeutic approaches are simpler Still, its not rare that patients refuse treatment – Up to 57% of patients refuse a treatment suggested by their doctor 11 – 11% of patients do not even begin treatment even if they have agreed to it 11 Therapeutic management threshold Opportunities and challenges
Truvada for pre-exposure prophylaxis (iPrEx) 12 – Potential risk of transmission of resistances 13 – Mathematical models predict the appearance of resistance: <4% potential resistance associated with this approach (PrEP) % associated with antiretroviral therapy (ART) % by transmission of resistant viruses % risk of resistance around 2030 associated with PrEP in serodiscordant couples 15 – Resistance to iPrEX 16 No cases in the iPrEx arm, but 1 case of K65R and 1 case of M184V in the placebo arm, reported to date Resistance: risks and reality of the new approaches
High rates of K65R in patients naive to HIV subtype C after exposure to tenofovir (TDF) 17 – d4T+3TC or TDF+3TC plus one NNRTI 6% of virologic failures (n=35) 69.7% among them have a K65R mutation Potential reasons: – Faster selection of these mutations in vivo, longer duration in treatment failure, or transmission of resistant virus – Potential role of d4T as a vector of this phenomenon via transmission of resistant viruses 18 – 35.7% of K65R in patients with subtype C (vs. 2.2% for type B, and 3.7% for non-B/C) 19 Resistance: HIV subtype C
Risks associated with the introduction of new molecules: tenofovir (TDF), abacavir (ABC) and LPV/r on resistance 20 – Since the increase in the use of TDF and ABC (2009), we've witnessed a significant increase in K65R and L74V – Compared to the TDF/3TC/EFV combination (VF=31%), the risk of K65R is higher in the presence of NVP (VF=88%) and lower with LPV/r (VF=7%) – 10% (n=42) of patients had resistance to LPV/r – 4% (n=17) showed cross-resistance to DRV/r Resistance: A South African experiment
Who are these patients? – CD 4 < or an HIV-defining illness regardless of the CD 4 They represent up to 59% of patients in some cohorts 22 – Often do not perceive themselves to be at risk Late Presenters: What should we do?
The costs associated with their treatment are higher even though they die faster 22 – These patients represent 43.1% of new patients – The cost associated with their treatment is between $27,275 and $ 61,615 higher than that of patients who are treated early – Even after 7 or 8 years of care, the difference in the cost of treatment between these patients and those who come early remains substantial It's harder to achieve an undetectable viral load in these patients 23 – After an average treatment period of 3 years, there is a 13.9% rate of treatment failures – To get a response, it takes on average 4.8 ± 2.1 (3-10) drugs The identification and management of these patients should be a priority 24 They represent one of the three most important problems associated with HIV in the United States 24 Late Presenters: Economic Challenges
Such patients are at greater risk for AEs related to treatment 25 – Increased risk of peripheral neuropathy if CD 4 is lower than 50 – Greater risk of nausea and vomiting with LPV/r than with ATZ – Greater risk of having to stop treatment with LPV/r than with ATZ 35% vs. 10% – Increased incidence of lipodystrophy – Increased risk of haematological toxicity with AZT – Lower treatment adherence – Higher resistance rates 10.4% in Europe, in naïve patients 9% in Germany – 7.6% to NRTIs – 2.5% to PIs and 2.6% to NNRTIs Late Presenters: Tolerability Challenges
Therapeutic responses vary 26 – ARTEMIS study More favorable virological response with DRV/r than with LPV/r 27 – CASTLE study More favorable virological response with ATZ/r than with LPV/r 28 Options that offer higher resistance thresholds – A drug with a high genetic barrier is an important inclusion in the ART regimen of these patients 28 – Boosted PIs are the preferred regimen vs. NNRTIs in this population 28 Consider pretreatment genotyping to determine the appropriate strategies if a rapid test result is possible 30 Late Presenters: Therapeutic Challenges
Patient management: Experiment with a hepatitis C 31 treatment with interferon – Results of the meta-analysis: Response rate of 54.3% among IDUs Patients with acute hepatitis: the response rates are 68.5% for IDUs and 81.5% among non-IDUs New options without interferon – ALS 2200: Viral load reduction of 4.54 log 10 in patients with genotype 1 31 – GS-7977 (Gilead) and daclatasvir (BMS) 100% SVR at 4 weeks 33 – BI and BI207127, SOUND-C2 study 34 Results with boosted PIs – Boosted atazanavir-based HAART was the most resilient regimen and it was more effective than efavirenz-based HAART among IDUs 35 Review the treatment model for hepatitis based on the HIV model – Comprehensive care Injection drug users
Lower overdose rates 35 – 35% reduction, 500m around the site vs. 9% elsewhere in the city Reduced risk of HIV and hepatitis 36 – Prevention of 35 HIV cases/year – Prevention of 3 deaths/year Centralized venue for user/patient care Effective in terms of cost-benefit The supervised injection sites approach Vancouver's INSITE Model
Countries of the former USSR 37,38 – Ukraine: nearly 1.6% of the population aged is HIV positive (n=440,000) – Substance abuse is an important vector of transmission in those countries – Heterosexual transmission of HIV remains a critical issue especially among normally low-risk populations 38 – Substance abuse is criminalized in those countries 37 Confiscation of syringes by police Police arrests for possession of syringes IDUs are tortured by police Africa and specific populations – IDUs: yes even there, Nigerian Situation 39 – MSM and HIV in Africa: underestimation of a hidden reality 40,41 Concentration of the epidemic
Sexual Health Centre – Comprehensive approach: HIV, hepatitis, sexual health, HPV, addiction Post-exposure prophylaxis Point of service on the street: LActuel sur rue – Simple and quick screening – Importance of clinical follow-up A new model of care: from the clinic to the street
Approval of an oral test in the USA 42 – Sensitivity: 92% For 1 person in 12, the test does not detect the HIV positive status Controversy – Screening at home – Lack of support and monitoring in the case of a positive test Encourages testing It is important to inform the public that treatments are now simpler and more effective The new home screening tests: controversies or benefits?
Challenges – Eliminating the context of criminalization of HIV and substance abuse – The stigma associated with HIV – Growing educational needs because of the new treatments – Reaching new clienteles IDUs Late presenters – Treatment as prevention, both for oneself and for others Dangers – Negative impacts on prevention programs by sending a too positive message, HIV/AIDS is not cured or settled, and hasn't disappeared – Prevention remains necessary Conclusion
