The prevalence of HIV-positive subjects in dialysis (hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis) population varies from 0.13 to 0.36% in italian and french studies, respectively. Most drugs used in HIV therapy are primarly excreted by the kidney. In patients with renal insufficiency, careful dosage adjustment is mandatory to optimize drug exposure and reduce the risk for adverse events. We review the impact of peritoneal dialysis on the pharmacokinetics of antiviral drugs, and discuss on the dosage recommandations needed to achieve efficacy and avoid toxicity in patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD).
