Description

Patient who suffered from an ischemic stroke at the age of 31 (factor V Leiden) and was on ticlopidine as secondary prevention. He was diagnosed with HIV in 2017, started with TAF/FTC + DTG, and changed to RAL for intolerance. Since HAART start no major/minor bleeding side effects or recurrent ischemic stroke was observed. The addition of treatment for pulmonary disease by Mycobacterium avium did not cause any major change in efficacy/tolerability during follow up (2.5 years).

Clinical Outcome

No unwanted outcome

Editorial Comment

Ticlopidine is metabolized extensively in the liver by CYP 450s (including 3A4, 2C19 and 2B6) and may inhibit CYP2B6. Raltegravir is not expected to have any interaction with ticlopidine, but no data is available (nor in HIV Liverpool database).
