Currently, more than 80 laboratories worldwide are enrolled in this program. Drug standards can

3. CONCLUSION

TDM of PIs and NNRTIs has clinical significance, and these antiretrovirals are emerging as new drugs that will be monitored in more and more medical centers in the future. Eventually, TDM of these drugs will be employed routinely in the management of patients with HIV/AIDS along with currently monitored parameters such as CD4 counts and viral load assessments.
