A combined antiviral drug that contains lopinavir and ritonavir.

Lopinavir is an inhibitor of the HIV-1 and HIV-2 protease of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and provides antiviral activity of the preparation Kaletra В® .Inhibition of HIV proteases inhibits the synthesis of virus proteins and prevents the splitting of the polypeptide gag-pol, which leads to the formation of an immature and virus that is not able to infect.

Ritonavir inhibits the metabolism of lopinavir mediated by the isoenzyme CYP3A4 in the liver, which leads to an increase in the concentration of lopinavir in the blood plasma.
Ritonavir is also an inhibitor of HIV protease.

Isolation of resistant strains in vitro

The HIV-1 strain with reduced sensitivity to lopinavir was isolated in vitro .
HIV-1 is passaged in vitro separately with lopinavir and a combination of lopinavir and ritonavir in concentrations equivalent to plasma concentrations observed during treatment with Kaletra В® . Based on the genotypic and phenotypic study of virus subtypes isolated during the passage, it can be assumed that the presence of ritonavir at these concentrations does not significantly affect the isolation of the virus-resistant subtypes of lopinavir. In general, an in vitro study of the characteristics of phenotypic cross-resistance between lopinavir and other protease inhibitors suggests that a decrease in susceptibility to lopinavir is closely related to a decrease in sensitivity to ritonavir and indinavir, but not to a decrease in susceptibility to amprenavir, saquinavir and nelfinavir.
Resistance test in patients who did not have antiretroviral therapy in history

In clinical trials with a limited number of strains studied, there was no selective resistance to lopinavir in patients without significant resistance to protease inhibitors at baseline.

Resistance test in patients treated with protease inhibitors

The emergence of resistance to lopinavir in patients who failed the main treatment with protease inhibitors was studied in a long-term study involving 19 patients receiving protease inhibitors in two phase II studies and one phase III study.
Patients had incomplete suppression of the virus or a viral return phenomenon resulting from a response to Kaletra В® and showed increasing in vitro resistance between baseline and recruitment (defined as the emergence of new mutations or a twofold change in phenotypic sensitivity to lopinavir). Increasing resistance was characteristic of patients characterized by the presence of initial strains that underwent several mutations in the treatment of protease inhibitors, with no more than 40 times reduced initial sensitivity to lopinavir. Mutations of V82A, I54V and M46I appeared most often. Also mutations L33F, I50V and V32I in combination with I47V / A were observed. In 19 strains there was a 3- to 4-fold increase in the concentration of 50% inhibition (IC 50 ) compared to the original strains (from 6.2 to 43-fold, compared to wild types of the virus).
There is a genotypic correlation between the decrease in phenotypic sensitivity to lopinavir in viruses isolated after treatment with other protease inhibitors.
In vitro , the antiviral activity of lopinavir was evaluated against 112 strains isolated from patients who were unsuccessfully treated with one or more protease inhibitors. Within this group, the following mutations in the HIV protease were associated with a decrease in in vitro susceptibility to lopinavir: L10F / I / R / V, K20M / R, L24I, M46I / L, F53L, I54L / T / V, L63P, A71I / L / T / V, V82A / F / T, I84V and L90M. The median EC 50 of lopinavir against isolates with mutations of 0-3, 4-5, 6-7 and 8-10 in the above amino acid positions was 0.8, 2.7 and 13.5, respectively, 44 times higher than wild type EC 50 HIV. All 16 types of virus with a 20-fold increase in sensitivity had mutations at positions 10, 54, 63 and 82 and / or 84. In addition, they contained the median 3 mutations at amino acid positions 20, 24, 46, 53, 71 and 90. In addition to the above mutations, mutations of V32I and I47A have been observed in relapsed strains with reduced susceptibility to lopinavir in patients treated with protease inhibitors and treated with KaletraВ®. Patients taking Kaletra В® received mutations I47A and L76V in recurrent strains with reduced susceptibility to lopinavir. Evaluation of the importance of individual mutations or sets of mutations may change with the receipt of additional data. It is always advisable to consult about the current system for evaluating the results of resistance studies.
Antiviral activity of lopinavir in patients unsuccessfully treated with protease inhibitors

The clinical significance of the decrease in sensitivity to lopinavir in vitro was studied by the method of assessing the virologic response to Kaletra В® treatment, taking into account the initial viral genotype and phenotype, in 56 patients who had not benefited from treatment with various protease inhibitors.
The EC 50 value of lopinavir on the basis of 56 initial strains of the virus exceeded the EC 50 value of wild types of HIV in the range from 0.6 to 98-fold. After 48 weeks of treatment with Kaletra В® , efavirenz and nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, the plasma HIV RNA level was? 400 copies / ml in 93% (25/27), 73% (11/15), and 25% (2/8) patients with less than 10-fold, 10-40-fold and more than 40-fold decrease in sensitivity to lopinavir, respectively, compared with the baseline level. The virologic response was also observed in 91% (21/23), 71% (15/21) and 33% (2/6) of patients with 0-5, 6-7, and 8-10 mutations in the above mutations in the HIV protease, associated with a decrease in sensitivity to lopinavir in vitro . Since these patients have not previously taken Kaletra В® or efavirenz, partial effect may be attributed to the antiviral activity of efavirenz, especially for patients with a highly resistant type of virus. The study does not involve a control group of patients who did not take Kaletra В® .

The effectiveness of other protease inhibitors against strains that developed increasing resistance to lopinavir after treatment with Kaletra В® in patients taking protease inhibitors: the presence of cross-resistance to other prosthetic inhibitors was analyzed in 18 recurring strains showing increased

resistance to lopinavir during three Phase II studies and one Phase II study of the Kaletra В® preparation in patients receiving protease inhibitors.
Median IC 50 oflopinavir for the above 18 strains in the initial state and in the phenomenon of virologic recoil was higher in the range from 6.9 to 63 times, respectively, compared to wild types of the virus. As a rule, strains with virological recoil are preserved (with cross-resistance initially), and develop significant resistance to indinavir, saquinavir, atazanavir. A moderate decrease in amprenavir activity was observed with a median of an IC 50 of 3.7 to 8 for the initial and recurrent strains, respectively.The strains retained sensitivity to tipranavir with a median increase in IC 50 at baseline and in the virological response phenotype with a multiplicity of 1.9 to 1.8, respectively, compared to wild types of the virus. For more information on tipranavir, including the genotypic response rates for the treatment of HIV-1-resistant lopinavir, see the instructions for the use of tipranavir.
Results of clinical trials


M98-940 was an open-label study of the liquid dosage form of the Kaletra В® preparation in 100 pediatric patients who did not take antiretroviral drugs (44%) and received antiretroviral drugs (56%).
All patients did not receive non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors. Patients were randomized to 230 mg lopinavir / 57.5 mg ritonavir per m 2 or 300 mg lopinavir / 75 mg ritonavir per m 2 . Previously untreated patients also received nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors. Patients previously treated received nevirapine plus up to two nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors. For each patient, after 3 weeks of treatment, safety profiles, efficacy and pharmacokinetics were evaluated in two dosing regimens. Further, all patients continued to receive a dose of 300/75 mg per m 2 . The average age of the patients was 5 years (range from 6 months to 12 years), 14 patients were less than 2 years, 6 patients were one year or less. The mean baseline level of CD4 + T cell count was 838 cells / mm 3 , and the mean baseline HIV-1 RNA in plasma was 4.7 log 10 copies / ml.

KONCERT / PENTA 18 is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, open-label study of the pharmacokinetic profile, efficacy and safety of taking 2 times a week, compared with 1 time per week of the lopinavir / ritonavir 100 mg / 25 mg dose, as part of a combination of antiretroviral therapy (CART) among children infected with HIV, with a suppressed virus (n = 173).
Children were eligible for the study if their age was <18 years, body weight ≥15 kg if they received a cART that included lopinavir / ritonavir if the HIV-1 RNA concentration was <50 copies / ml for at least 24 weeks, and if they were able to swallow tablets. At week 24, efficacy and safety when taken 2 times / day (n = 87) in the pediatric population receiving lopinavir / ritonavir 100 mg / 25 mg tablets corresponded to the efficacy and safety observations in previous studies in adults and children with drugs lopinavir / ritonavir 2 times / day. The proportion of patients achieving HIV-1 RNA concentration <50 copies / ml at week 24 among patients in the pediatric population who received lopinavir / ritonavir 1 time (88.2%) was less than patients receiving a dose of 2 times / day (96.6%, p = 0.040), mainly due to a lower level of therapy in the admission group 1 time / day. Data on efficacy in favor of the 2-fold / day regimen are supported by differences in pharmacokinetic parameters, which significantly supports the regime 2 times / day


The pharmacokinetics of lopinavir in combination with ritonavir was studied in healthy volunteers and HIV-infected patients;
there were no significant differences between the two groups. Lopinavir is almost completely metabolized by CYP3A isoenzymes. Ritonavir inhibits the metabolism of lopinavir and causes an increase in its concentration in the blood plasma. When lopinavir / ritonavir was used at a dose of 400/100 mg 2 times / day, the average C ss of lopinavir in plasma in HIV-infected patients were 15-20 times higher than those of ritonavir, and the concentration of ritonavir in plasma was less than 7% of the concentration with ritonavir in dose of 600 mg 2 times / day. EC 50 of lopinavir in vitro is about 10 times lower than that of ritonavir. Thus, the antiviral activity of the combination of lopinavir and ritonavir is determined by lopinavir.

In a pharmacokinetic study involving HIV-positive patients (n = 19), when 400/100 mg lopinavir / ritonavir was taken 2 times / day during meals for 3 weeks, the mean C max was 9.8 В± 3.7 Ојg / ml and was achieved approximately 4 h after taking the drug.

The mean equilibrium concentration (C ss ) before the morning dose was 7.1 В± 2.9 Ојg / ml and the minimum concentration (C min ) within the dosing interval was 5.5 В± 2.7 Ојg / ml.

AUC of lopinavir for 12 hours after taking the drug averaged 92.6 В± 36.7 Ојg В· h / ml.
Absolute bioavailability of lopinavir in combination with ritonavir in the human body has not been established.
Effect of food on intake when ingestion.
The administration of a single dose of 400/100 mg of the preparation Kaletra В® in the tablet dosage form after ingestion (high fat content, 872 kcal, 56% fat) did not lead to significant changes in C max and AUC inf compared with fasting. Therefore, the preparation Kaletra В® in the dosage form of the tablet can be taken with or without food.

In an equilibrium state, approximately 98-99% of lopinavir is in association with plasma proteins.
Lopinavir binds to alpha- 1- acid glycoprotein (ACG) and albumin, however, lopinavir has a higher affinity for ACS. In an equilibrium state, binding of lopinavir to plasma proteins remains constant at concentrations that are established in the blood after taking the drug at a dose of 400/100 mg 2 times / day and is comparable in healthy volunteers and HIV-positive patients.

In vitro studies have shown that lopinavir is mainly exposed to oxidative metabolism involving the cytochrome P450 hepatocyte system, mainly under the influence of the CYP3A isoenzyme.
Ritonavir is a potent inhibitor of the CYP3A isoenzyme, which inhibits the metabolism of lopinavir, which increases the concentration of lopinavir in the blood plasma. After a single 400/100 mg administration of lopinavir / ritonavir (labeled with 14 C-lopinavir), 89% of the radioactivity is provided by the starting drug. In the human body, at least 13 oxidative metabolites of lopinavir were detected. Ritonavir is able to induce isoenzymes of cytochrome P450, which leads to the induction of its own metabolism. During long-term use, the concentrations of lopinovir before the next dose were reduced with time and stabilized after about 10-16 days.

After taking 400/100 mg of 14 C-lopinavir / ritonavir after 8 days, about 10.4 В± 2.3% and 82.6 В± 2.5% of the dose of 14 C-lopinavir is detected in urine and feces, respectively.
And unchanged lopinavir is 2.2% and 19.8%, respectively. After prolonged use of less than 3% of the dose of lopinavir is excreted unchanged in kidneys.The clearance of lopinavir for oral administration is 5.98 В± 5.75 l / h.
Application 1 time / day

The pharmacokinetics of lopinavir / ritonavir once a day was studied in HIV-infected patients who had not previously received antiretroviral therapy.
Lopinavir / ritonavir 800/200 mg was used in combination with emtricitabine at a dose of 200 mg and tenofovir 300 mg once a day daily. With the long-term use of 800/200 mg lopinavir / ritonavir 1 time / day during meals for 4 weeks C max lopinavir was reached approximately 6 hours after administration and averaged 11.8 В± 3.7 Ојg / ml.The mean C ss, before taking the morning dose, averaged 3.2 В± 2.1 Ојg / ml, and C min within the dosing interval was 1.7 В± 1.6 Ојg / ml. AUC of lopinavir at a 24-hour interval of reception averaged 154.1 В± 61.4 Ојg В· h / ml.
Special patient groups

Sex, race, age.
The pharmacokinetics of lopinavir has not been studied in elderly patients. No sex-dependent pharmacokinetic differences were observed in adult patients. No clinically relevant pharmacokinetic differences depending on the race are established.
The pharmacokinetics of lopinavir / ritonavir for oral administration at a dose of 300/75 mg / m 2 2 times / day and 230/57.5 mg / m 2 2 times / day were studied in a total of 53 children under the age of 12 years. The dosing regimen of 230 / 57.5 mg / m2 2 times / day without nevirapine and 300/75 mg / m 2 2 times / day with nevirapine provided plasma lopinavir concentrations similar to those obtained in adult patients taking 400/100 mg twice / day (without nevirapine). The pharmacokinetics of lopinavir / ritonavir was not studied in children 1 time / day in children.
In the equilibrium state, AUC, Cmax and Cmin of lopinavir were 72.6 В± 31.1 Ојg / h, 8.2 В± 2.9 and 3.4 В± 2.1 Ојg / ml, respectively, after application of lopinavir / ritonavir in a dose of 230/57.5 mg / m 2 2 times / day without nevirapine (n = 12), and after application of the drug at a dose of 300/75 mg / m 2 2 times / day with nevirapine (n = 12) - 85.8 В± 36.9 Ојg / h, 10 В± 3.3 and 3.6 В± 3.5 Ојg / ml, respectively.
The nevirapine regimen was 7 mg / kg 2 times / day (in patients from 6 months to 8 years) or 4 mg / kg 2 times / day (in patients older than 8 years).
Renal failure.
The pharmacokinetics of lopinavir in patients with renal insufficiency has not been studied. But due to the fact that the renal clearance of lopinavir is negligible, should not be expected to reduce the total clearance of the drug in patients with renal insufficiency.
Liver failure. Lopinavir is metabolized and eliminated primarily by the liver. Combined dosing lopinavir / ritonavir 400/100 mg of 2 times / day in patients coinfected with HIV and hepatitis C virus with impaired liver medium and low severity function leads to 30% increase AUClopinavira and 20% increase in C maxcompared to HIV-infected patients with normal liver function. Lopinavir plasma protein binding was lower with mild to moderate hepatic impairment compared to controls (99.09% compared to 99.31%, respectively). Lopinavir / ritonavir has not been studied in patients with hepatic insufficiency, severe patients (see. Section "Contraindications").
