|Condition or disease|
Participants: Six HIV-positive pre-menopausal women already undergoing therapy with raltegravir.
Procedures (methods): This study will be conducted at a single site: the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. An outpatient screening visit will assess subject suitability and willingness to participate. During one pharmacokinetic visit women will be asked to self-collect cervicovaginal samples using a cervicovaginal fluid aspirator at the following time points: pre-dose and 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 hours after raltegravir 400mg dose administration. One 3mL EDTA tube will be collected at the same time points to analyze blood plasma. A follow-up safety visit will be completed within 30 days of the inpatient stay.
