Janssen-Cilag has launched Intelence (etravirine) for the treatment of HIV infection in antiretroviral treatment-experienced adults, in combination with a boosted protease inhibitor and other antiretrovirals.

Etravirine is the first new non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) to be launched in 10 years and it is the first NNRTI to show antiviral activity in treatment experienced adult patients resistant to NNRTIs.

Intelence has been authorised under a ‘conditional approval' scheme which means new information on etravirine will be reviewed yearly and the SPC updated as necessary.
