Merck Receives Approval from U.S. FDA for PIFELTRO and DELSTRIGO

In September 2019, Merck announced that it received the U.S. FDA approval for DELSTRIGO™ (as a complete regimen) and PIFELTRO™ (in combination with other antiretroviral agents). These will be used in adult patients for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. These patients will have to be suppressed on a stable antiretroviral regimen with no history of substitutions related to the resistance to both drugs and treatment failures. As per one of the company officials, “These broadened indications would help certain people with HIV-1 infection to move towards PIFELTRO and DELSTRIGO from their current antiretroviral therapy by combining other antiretroviral agents.” Such initiatives by reputed players would bolster the demand for these drugs in the near future.
