In the context of Sub-saharian Africa, this trial evaluate one of the most simple treatment available for HIV-1 infected patients. The combination proposed is a triple antiretroviral therapy with only one intake of 3 pills per day. This combination has already been studied in the North countries.

Here in Senegal, the efficacy and the compliance to treatment will be evaluated after 24, 48 and 96 weeks of treatment.

Further study details as provided by French National Agency for Research on AIDS and Viral Hepatitis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of the antiretroviral efficacy as first line treatment assessed as percentage of patients with viral load below 400 copies/ml at week 48 in the intention to treat (ITT) population [ Time Frame: S48 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of the viral load and percentage of patients with a viral load lower than 50 copies/ml [ Time Frame: S24 and S96 ]
  • Viral load evolution [ Time Frame: S24 and S48 ]
  • Genotype resistance profile evaluation failing patients [ Time Frame: S24, S48, S96 ]
  • Immune benefits of the combination
  • Plasma concentrations of FTC, TDF and EFV [ Time Frame: S4 ]
  • Adverse events clinic and lipids
  • Compliance [ Time Frame: S48 and S96 ]
