Change to HIV post-exposure treatment

On December 14th, the US Public Health Service updated their recommendations for administration of two drugs used after workplace HIV exposures from needlesticks. A new dosing regimen was proposed for Kaletra. The second recommendation warns against prescribing Viracept for pregnant women.

Expert guidance on the prophylactic management of specific exposure incidents is available from the National Clinicians' Post-Exposure Prophylaxis Hotline by telephone (888-448-4911) or online at www.ucsf.edu/hivcntr.

These recommendations will be incorporated into Tab 5 of Quality America's OSHA Safety Program Manual and Dental OSHA Safety Program Manual with the March/April 2008 OSHA Watch updates.
