Patients with sustained virological suppression on protease inhibitor (PI)-based therapy were randomly assigned to switch the PI to nevirapine (n = 155), efavirenz (n = 156), or abacavir (n = 149) and were followed for at least 3 years regardless of the discontinuation of assigned therapy. There was a higher probability of maintaining virological suppression after 3 years of follow-up with nevirapine or efavirenz than with abacavir. In contrast, abacavir showed a lower incidence of adverse effects leading to drug discontinuation.
