Overview of Tivicay

Tivicay is the first once daily, unboosted integrase inhibitor.*

Tivicay is indicated in combination with other antiretroviral medicinal products for the treatment of HIV-infected adults, adolescents and children above 6 years of age.[1] Tivicay is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to dolutegravir or to any of the excipients, and with co-administration with dofetilide.[1]

Tivicay has been extensively studied in a clinical programme involving 3,041 patients across five phase III trials (SINGLE, SPRING-2, FLAMINGO, SAILING, VIKING-3).[2-9]

Reasons to rethink first line treatment with Tivicay for patients with HIV-1:

  • Rapid and sustained efficacy up  to 144 weeks[2-9]
  • High barrier to resistance to date[2-9]
  • Generally well tolerated with few discontinuations[2-9]
  • Once daily with few significant drug-drug interactions or dosing restrictions*[1]

Make dolutegravir your core agent

A journey through ART innovation – how 3rd agents have become core to HIV therapy.

* Tivicay is dosed 50 mg once daily for patients without documented or clinically suspected resistance to the integrase class. Tivicay should be administered twice daily in this population when co-administered with some medicines (e.g. efavirenz, nevirapine, tipranavir/ritonavir, or rifampicin). [1]

Tivicay is dosed 50 mg twice daily for patients with resistance to the integrase class (documented or clinically suspected). Co-administration of Tivicay with some medicines should be avoided in this population (e.g. efavirenz, nevirapine, tipranavir/ritonavir, or rifampicin). In the presence of integrase inhibitor resistance, there are insufficient data to recommend a dose for dolutegravir in adolescents and children. [1]
