We prospectively studied the initial results of 6 months of generic efavirenz-based therapy on the plasma viral load in 40 patients at YRG Centre for AIDS Research and Education, a tertiary HIV referral centre in southern India. The median baseline plasma viral load was 259 000 copies/ml and at 6 months 95% of patients had plasma viral loads less than 400 copies/ml. The data support the use of generic non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor-based regimens in resource-limited settings.
