Treatment of Active TB/HIV Patients: A

Systematic Review

1. Rates of relapse and death were significantly higher among patients who
received a rifamycin for only 2 months.
2. Intermittent treatment during initial intensive phase was associated with
significantly higher rates of failure and relapse.
3. Receipt of ART was associated with non-significantly lower rates of failure
and relapse

Drug-drug Recommendation
Rifampicin + Efavirenz Use EFV 800mg/day in patients ≥60kg and
standard dose 600mg/day in patients <60kg
Rifampicin + Nevirapine Not recommended but if given then use
standard doses and perform NVP TDM
Rifampicin + Etravirine No data, not recommended
Rifampicin + Rilpivirine Not recommended
Rifabutin + Efavirenz Increase rifabutin to 450mg daily
Rifabutin + Nevirapine Not recommended but if given then use
standard doses
Rifabutin + Etravirine Use with caution; if given then use standard
Rifabutin + Rilpivirine No data
Bamrasnaradura Infectious Diseases Institute

Drug-drug Recommendation
Rifampicin + unboosted PI Do not use
Rifampicin + boosted PI Not recommended because of poor
pharmacokinetics and
high rates of hepatotoxicity in healthy
Rifabutin + unboosted PI Reduce rifabutin to 150mg daily,
increase unboosted PI
Rifabutin + boosted PI Reduce rifabutin to 150mg three times
per week

Rifampicin + Raltegravir Use raltegravir 400 mg bid

Rifampicin + Maraviroc Not recommended, but if given

double dose of maraviroc
Rifabutin + Raltegravir No data, not recommended
Rifabutin + Maraviroc Use standard doses

 HIV and TB are still the major public health threat and the leading
cause of death. In addition, MDR TB and XDR TB epidemics are
rapidly expanding.
– Further strategic management and collaborative treatment is needed.

 Six- to nine-month rifamycin-based anti-TB regimen is still a standard

treatment regimen. Studies of new drugs in TB treatment pipeline are
 INH preventive treatment are beneficial for a short period, especially
for patients with advanced immuno-suppression while awaiting TB
protective effect from ART.
– The optimal duration of IPT is lesser clear compared to non-HIV patients.
– Limitation of TST, rate of isoniazid resistance, duration-limited benefit of
IPT, and adverse events are the concerns in co-infected HIV/TB patients.

 Effective combined ART substantially reduce the risk of death.
– Early initiation of ART in severe immunosuppressive co-infected HIV/TB
patients is associated with improved survival but not for the TB meningitis.
– However, more clinical trials is still needed from the different medical

 Standard dose of efavirenz is less compromised by concomitant

treatment with rifampicin than nevirapine in patients with concurrent
HIV infection and TB who weigh <60 kilograms.
– CYP2B6-TT genotype had impact on plasma efavirenz while co-
administration with/without rifampicin.
– Nevirapine-based ART remains an acceptable option for persons who
can not use efavirenz.
