No Interaction Expected
Emtricitabine/Tenofovir-DF (FTC/TDF, PrEP)
Quality of Evidence: Very Low
Coadministration with emtricitabine/tenofovir-DF has not been studied, but based on metabolism and clearance a clinically significant interaction is unlikely. Buprenorphine undergoes both N-dealkylation to form norbuprenorphine (via CYP3A4) and glucuronidation (via UGT2B7 and UGT1A1). Norbuprenorphine, an active metabolite, can further undergo glucuronidation (via UGT1A3 and UGT1A1). Coadministration of buprenorphine and tenofovir-DF was investigated in 10 HIV-negative, buprenorphine/naloxone maintained subjects. When compared to values obtained from control subjects not receiving buprenorphine, no significant changes in buprenorphine pharmacokinetics were observed. When compared to controls, buprenorphine had no statistically significant effect on NRTI concentrations.
