Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has significantly reduced morbidity and increased life expectancy of individuals infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Consequently, non-acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining malignancies are increasing in frequency, which necessitates the concurrent use of antineoplastics and ART. Although drug interactions are a major concern when combining these agents, there is currently limited guidance on dose adjustments required to maintain safe and efficacious drug exposure.
