Switching from PIs to dolutegravir in virologically suppressed HIV-infected individuals has not been assessed.

The principal aim was to assess the evolution of bone mineral density (BMD) when switching from a ritonavir-boosted PI to dolutegravir in HIV-infected  patients with osteopenia or osteoporosis.

CONCLUSIONS: Dolutegravir + Kivexa(®) was safe and well-tolerated in virologically suppressed patients receiving a PI-based regimen. The lipid profile was better, albeit without significant changes in BMD, probably because of the short follow-up.
