Fosamprenavir plus ritonavir increases plasma ketoconazole and ritonavir exposure, while amprenavir exposure remains unchanged.


PMID 17517848

Abstract

Plasma ketoconazole (KETO), amprenavir (APV), and ritonavir (RTV) pharmacokinetics were evaluated in 15 healthy subjects after being treated with KETO at 200 mg once daily (QD), fosamprenavir (FPV)/RTV at 700/100 mg twice daily (BID), and then KETO at 200 mg QD plus FPV/RTV at 700/100 mg BID in this open-label study. The KETO area under the concentration-time curve at steady state was increased 2.69-fold with FPV/RTV. APV exposure was unchanged, and RTV exposure was slightly increased.
