Monica Gandhi, MD, MPH, describes 3 cases for which ART regimens were simplified, with attention to the data supporting simplification and rational for selecting a simplified ART regimen. In 2 of the cases described, the patients have complex treatment histories dating from the 1990s and exhibit extensive viral resistance mutations. One patient is seeking a less onerous regimen, and the other has low bone mineral density that changes the preferred components of the ARV regimen. Another case illustrates the challenges of selecting ARVs for patients with hyperlipidemia.
