Darunavir, the latest PI to be FDA approved for pediatric patients older than 6 years and currently the preferred PI for use in adult patients, was added as an alternative PI for use in children based on a combination of data from both adult and pediatric trials. This review of darunavir in the treatment of HIV-infected children and adolescents looks at the major published clinical trials findings, pharmacokinetic and resistance studies, and preliminary data on use in younger children.
