Marked advances have been done regarding drug development for the therapy of HIV-1 – infection. With the formulation of Dolutegravir plus Lamivudine as combination Antiretroviral- therapy (cART) into single tablet regimens till the formation of long acting Antiretroviral (ARV) drug formulations, the therapy of HIV has become much more tolerable and will become even further tolerable as compared to initiation of therapy with zovidudine in 1987. Additionally, there is concentration on decreasing both short as well as long term toxicities and in same time sustaining heavy effectiveness. The main focus of this article is the 1st 2 drug regimen that has been approved for therapy by FDA for treatment naïve people residing with HIV-1(PLWH), that comprises of the integrase inhibitor Dolutegravir (DTG) as well as the nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) Lamivudine (3TC). The chemical composition, as well as pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, as well as clinical trial data on safety) as well as effectiveness of DTG/3TC are discussed. Further emphasis on use of DTG/3TC in the frame of existing scenario and emerging ARV possibilities is further touched.
