In combination with other antiretroviral agents for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in treatment-experienced adult patients, who have evidence of viral replication and HIV-1 strains resistant to an NNRTI and other antiretroviral agents. In patients who have experienced virologic failure on an NNRTI-containing regimen, do not use ETRATEC in combination with only N[t]RTis.

Etravirine is an NNRTI of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). Etravirine binds directly to reverse transcriptase (RT) and blocks the RNA-dependent and DNA­ dependent DNA polymerase activities by causing a disruption of the enzyme’s catalytic site. Etravirine does not inhibit the
human DNA polymerases a, andy

Severe, potentially life-threatening and fatal skin reactions have been reported. These include cases of Stevens­ Johnson syndrome , hypersensitivity reaction, toxic epidermal necrolysis and erythema multiforme.

– Ti pra n a vir I riton a vir, fo sam pre n a vir/ riton a vir , atazanavir/ritonavir
-Protease inhibitors administered without ritonavir

Co-administration of ETRATEC with drugs that inhibit or induce CYP3A, CYP2C9, and CYP2C19 may alter the therapeutic effect or adverse reaction profile of etravirine.
Co-administration of ETRATEC with drugs that are substrates of CYP3A, CYP2C9, and CYP2C19 or are transported by P­ glycoprotein may alter the therapeutic effect or adverse reaction profile of the co-administered drug(s).

Nursing Mothers: Mother should not breastfeed due to both the potential for HIV transmission and the potential for adverse reactions in nursing infants.
