Answer

Answer

Therapy in term and preterm newborns

There are sufficient data on dosing for zidovudine (ZDV), lamivudine (3TC) and nevirapine (NVP).

Therapy in term newborns

For term infants, there are also sufficient data on dosing for emtricitabine and raltegravir.

For term infants older than 2 weeks (but not preterm infants), there are sufficient dosing data for lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r).

Based on newer data concerning earlier treatments and earlier results of nucleic acid testing, triple therapy may be initiated in some high-risk infants.
