Dolutegravir is a WHO recommended medicine due to its low level of adverse effects and suitability for broad populations.
It is a preferred first- and second-line treatment for HIV patients.
Currently in the US market there are no generic versions of Dolutegravir.
A unique licensing agreement between ViiV and the Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) allows certain manufacturers to produce generic Dolutegravir for selected developing countries.
2020 marks the 6th year of the signing of this licensing agreement that allows generic manufacturers to produce and sell dolutegravir in countries with higher rates of HIV.
In 2020 eighteen generic manufacturers are authorized to produce and sell affordable fixed-dose or single combination versions of Dolutegravir in over 100 low-income countries.
These licensing agreements have also allowed the manufacturers to include dolutegravir in a new developed combination of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/ lamivudine/dolutegravir.
