Abstract OBJECTIVES: To assess the inter-individual and intra-individual plasma concentration variabilities of non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) and protease inhibitors (PIs) in routine clinical practice and to investigate their relationships with virological failure. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled HIV-infected patients undergoing therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) of NNRTIs and PIs during routine outpatient visits. Plasma drug concentrations were measured by HPLC-UV and were considered therapeutic if above the proposed minimum efficacy trough concentration. Inter-individual and intra-individual variabilities were evaluated through the coefficient of variation (CV). RESULTS: A total of 457 PI and 172 NNRTI plasma concentrations were measured from 363 patients (HIV-RNA <50 copies/mL in 70.8\%, median CD4 count 434 cells/mm(3)). NNRTIs showed less inter-individual (CV(inter) 54.8\% versus 84.3\%) and intra-individual (CV(intra) 19.0\% versus 38.1\%) pharmacokinetic variabilities than PIs. Intra-individual variability was constantly lower than inter-individual variability for each drug. Subtherapeutic drug concentrations were observed in 106 samples (16.9\%). Older age (P = 0.020) and higher viral load (P = 0.013) were associated with subtherapeutic levels. Patients with therapeutic levels had a viral load of <50 copies/mL more frequently than those with subtherapeutic levels (74.8\% versus 63.2\%, P = 0.020). The estimated proportion with virological failure at 24 weeks was 0.21 in patients with suboptimal baseline drug levels and 0.08 in those with optimal levels (P < 0.001). In the multivariate analysis, therapeutic drug levels showed an independent negative association with virological failure (P = 0.004). CONCLUSIONS: A wide inter-individual and limited intra-individual pharmacokinetic variabilities, together with the demonstration of a concentration-response relationship, suggest that TDM is a useful tool for the clinical management of patients treated with NNRTIs or PIs.
