  • Nevirapine (NVP) is the main component of the regimen for the treatment of HIV infection

    • NVP-based regimen is recommended by EACS and resource-limited settings guidelines including Thailand

  • NVP-associated cutaneous adverse reaction (NVP-CAR) is a major drug adverse reaction

    • Prevalence ~15-20%

  • The associations of NVP-CAR and variations in major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region class I have been reported in Thais

    • HLA-B*35:05

    • Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in CCHCR1

Sasisopin kiertiburanakul md mhs surakameth mahasirimongkol md msc phd

HLA-B*35:05 was observed in 17.5% of patients with rash vs. 1.1% of NVP-tolerant patients

OR 49.15 (95% CI 6.45-374.41, P=0.00017)

Sensitivity 17.5%

Specificity 98.9%

  • ∼550,000 markers

  • CCHCR1 significantly associated with rash

  • OR 2.59 (95% CI 1.82-3.68, P=0.007)

  • Receiver operating characteristic curve showed an area under the curve of 76.4%

  • This study was designed to determine the effectiveness of prospective genotypes-based screening to prevent NVP-CAR in HIV-infected Thai patients

Patients and methods

Patients and Methods

Study methods

Study Methods

  • Prospective multicenter randomized study

  • 9 hospitals in Thailand

  • Study period: April 2009-April 2012

  • We randomly assigned patients to undergo prospective HLA-B*35:05 and CCHCR1 SNPs genotyping group and control group (standard-of-care group)

Study methods1

Study Methods

Prospective-screening group

  • Exclusion of patients with HLA-B*35:05 and CCHCR1 carrier from using NVP and initiated efavirenz (EFV)-based regimen

    Control group

  • NVP usage without prospective genotypic screening

    End point committee

  • NVP-CAR was reviewed by central end point committees composed of a clinical immunologist, a dermatologist and an infectious disease specialist

    Patients were followed for 6 months after ART initiation

Patient selection criteria

Patient Selection Criteria

  • Age 18-70 years old

  • Confirmed to be infected with HIV-1

  • Naïve to ART

  • Eligible for ART according to Thai national guidelines

  • Agreed to withholding other drugs and other medications which do not prescribed by the investigators 14 days prior to ART initiation and during the study

  • Not a pregnant woman or in a lactation period

  • AST/ALT <5 ULN



Study flow chart

Study Flow Chart

  • 1,137 patients were enrolled

34 patients did not receive randomization

10 patients withdrew consent

4 patients had a protocol violation

10 patients were lost to follow-up

10 patients were not treated owing to investigator’s


  • Randomized by gender and CD4 strata N=1,103

  • Prospective-screening group

  • N=554

Control group

Strength of the study

Strength of the Study

  • First randomized trial regarding personalized prescription of NVP

  • Point of care genotypic testing is effective preventive intervention for NVP-CAR

  • NVP can be initiated safely for those who less likely to develop NVP-CAR from the result of genetic testing



  • HLA-B genotype testing may be limited by facility and resource

  • HLA-B*35:05 is not common in other populations except Southeast Asian and Southern Americans

  • Additional genetic risks remained to be discovered



  • HLA-B*35:05 and CCHCR1 SNPs genotypic screening reduced the risk of NVP-CAR

  • Our results support the use of genotypes-based screening in a clinical setting to prevent NVP-CAR among naïve HIV-infected Thai patients



  • Research grant from Pharmacogenomics Projects, the collaboration between Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University and Thailand Center of Excellence of Life Sciences (TCELS)
