The newly listed contraindicated regimens are a three-NRTI regimen with abacavir, tenofovir, and lamivudine (because of early virologic nonresponse); a three-NRTI regimen with didanosine, tenofovir, and lamivudine (because of a high rate of virologic failure); the combination of didanosine and stavudine (because of a high incidence of toxicities, including several deaths); the combination of atazanavir and indinavir (both of which can cause high-grade hyperbilirubinemia and jaundice); and emtricitabine plus lamivudine as a two-NRTI backbone (since both drugs have similar resistance profiles and minimal additive antiviral activity).
