Abstract

  • Generic and brand name antiretroviral drugs are becoming increasingly available in developing countries. We analyzed 6 antiretroviral medications from 4 international sources for drug content. The active ingredient in tested drug products was within 15% of the labeled amount (range, -12% to +15%) for drugs that were properly stored.
