Original Title: Efavirenz, emtricitabina y tenofovir (Simplir®) en infección por VIH: comparación con otras marcas comerciales disponibles en Argentina
Authors' recomendations: CONCLUSIONS Simplir® is one of the three brands under which the efavirenz, emtricitabine and tenofovir combination is commercially available in Argentina. The combination is considered an essential drug by the World Health Organization, being the standard of care in HIV infection. No evidence comparing the three commercially available brands in Argentina: Simplir® (Elea SACIF y A), Atripla® (Gador S.A,) and Trivenz® (Richmond SACIF) was found. A bioequivalence study between Simplir® and Atripla® is currently being carried out. According to Argentina’s National Administration of Medicaments, Food and Medical Technology (ANMAT) authorizations, the three brands contain the same drug, at the same dose and they are approved for the same indications.
